For students in our graduate-level programs, DelVal offers the option of deferring payment until 45 days after the end of the term. The deferred payment plan is the option if you wish to avoid the placement of a hold on your student account. Students who do not enroll in a deferred payment plan for the term(s) in which their courses are scheduled must pay in full or obtain federal or private loans by the start of the term.

DelVal works with TouchNet Information Systems, Inc.

Enrollment in a deferred payment plan for a term in which you are not registered will result in the plan being terminated and the forfeiture of the enrollment fee.

Below are some important details about DelVal's payment plans.

Installment reminder emails are sent only to the user whose credentials are used to enroll in the plan. The Authorized User setup link is on the landing page after you log in to TouchNet.
  • Payment plan adjustments are automatic. If your student account balance changes after payment plan enrollment, the payment plan wil automatically adjust.
  • What amount should my payment plan be?

If a graduate program student withdraws from a course, refunds are calculated from the date the student notifies the Office of the Registrar in writing. Phone calls, voicemails, failing or ceasing to attend a class is not an official drop or withdrawal and will not result in a tuition refund. Tuition and fees paid for canceled courses are refunded in full. All other refunds, minus a $50 processing fee per course, will be made according to the following schedules:
