Paying for Your Education

Penn State World Campus makes many options available to help you pay for your education. Whether or not you use financial aid, you have access to several types of payment arrangements to meet your needs.

Penn State Installment Payment Plan

Penn State offers an installment payment plan, which allows you to pay your tuition bill in installments over several months. The installment payment plan, as well as eCheck and credit card payments, are explained on the payment options page of the Penn State Office of the Bursar.

Third-Party Payments

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 Penn State World Campus 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 we receive an authorization to bill, your employer has 30 days to make the payment.

Penn State World Campus Employer Reimbursement and Tuition Deferment Program

Penn State 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. Please visit the Paying Your Semester Bill page for complete details.

Flywire for International Payments

Students who need to send international payments for their tuition can use Flywire, Penn State’s preferred international payment method. You can find more information on the Penn State Office of the Bursar website.
