A few highly competitive merit-based scholarships are available to MBA students who have demonstrated extraordinary personal, professional, or academic achievements, or the ability to contribute a unique perspective to the class. Students who have been accepted to the program are automatically considered for merit-based scholarships. Because all applicants are automatically considered for a scholarship, you are encouraged to submit your completed application portfolio at least three months prior to the application deadline. Scholarship award decisions will be made by the MBA admissions committee.
Penn State World Campus accepts payments made by a third party — your company, for example. If your company is paying for your tuition and fees, our World Campus and Continuing Education Bursar Office must receive an authorization to bill. An authorization to bill is a form from your company on letterhead and must include your name, semester of enrollment, company address, and payment amount. Once Penn State receives an authorization to bill, your employer has 30 days to make the payment.
World Campus Employer Reimbursement and Tuition Deferment Program
World Campus offers an employer reimbursement and tuition deferment program to students whose employers offer tuition reimbursement. The program allows you to defer your tuition payments until completion of the semester with no finance or interest charges. The only cost is a nonrefundable $45 application fee, which must accompany the application. View the Employer Reimbursement Application for complete details.
