Enrollment and Reservation Deposits
Freshmen and transfer students entering the College of Undergraduate Studies are asked to reserve their place by submitting a deposit:
- Enrollment Deposit: $250 (all students). Once submitted, the enrollment deposit will be applied as a payment towards the student account balance. The enrollment deposit is refundable only if requested in writing prior to May 1st for students applying for the fall term, and December 15th for students applying for the spring term.
- Room Reservation Deposit: $250 (resident students). Once submitted, the room reservation deposit will allow room assignment. The deposit is not applied as a payment towards the student account balance but is held until the student graduates or withdraws. The room reservation deposit, less any outstanding financial obligations including room damages, will be refunded within the month following commencement. In case of withdrawal, this deposit less any outstanding financial obligations will be refunded if official notice of withdrawal is filed by June 15th in the office of the Dean of the College of Undergraduate Studies.
Student Financial Responsibility Agreement
All students at Immaculata University are required to agree to the Student Financial Responsibility Agreement once each term before registering for courses. The Agreement is available in the registration area of SSIU (Self-Service IU), accessible through MyIU, and defines the financial terms and conditions associated with course registration. This includes the student's responsibility regarding payment of tuition and fees, IU email, electronic billing, late fees, financial holds, financial aid, course add/drop/withdrawal, change of name/address/phone number and debt collection.
Tuition, charges and fees are assessed on a term basis and are due in full by the term payment due date unless a student enrolls into the IU Installment Payment Plan. Students registering on or after the term payment due date are required to pay at the time of registration. Once registered, a student assumes financial responsibility for charges. Students are not permitted to attend classes or occupy University housing until full payment or payment arrangements have been made with the Business Office prior to the term due date. Late fees in the amount of $30 are assessed monthly.
It is the responsibility of all financial aid recipients to ensure that their financial aid is available by the term payment due date.
Students with outstanding financial obligations will not be permitted to register for future terms or receive grades, teacher certifications, transcripts or diplomas.
Immaculata University reserves the right to assign outstanding account balances to collection agencies.
At the end of each term, students with an outstanding balance on their account are sent a letter from Immaculata requesting payment in full. If payment is not received within a specified timeframe, the account is placed with a letter writing agency, which issues a written notice to the student on behalf of the University. If the outstanding balance remains after the notice, Immaculata makes one last attempt to collect payment prior to assigning the account to a collection agency.
Once an account is assigned to a collection agency, all communication by the student must be made through the collection agency. Accounts are reported to credit bureaus. Students are responsible for paying the collection agency fee which may be based on a percentage at a maximum of 40% of the debt, together with all costs and expenses, including reasonable attorney’s fees, necessary for the collection of a delinquent account. All payments must be made directly to the collection agency; Immaculata cannot accept direct payments once an account is placed with a collection agency. The account is considered paid in full when the total debt is paid. Once an account has been paid in full, holds may be applied to a student’s account to enforce payment polices.
Payments may be made by check, cash, or any major credit card. Payments are accepted online by logging in to MyIU and clicking on SSIU (Self-Service IU), by mail, or in person in the Business Office between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. The Business Office is located in Room #14 terrace level, Villa Maria Hall. Payment drop boxes are located outside the Business Office doors in Villa Maria and at the commuter entrance located in Loyola Hall. Checks should be made payable to Immaculata University and mailed to: Business Office, Villa Maria 14, Immaculata, PA 19345. Questions may be directed to email@example.com or by phone at (610) 647-4400, extension 3174.
IU Installment Payment Plan
Immaculata offers an installment plan which allows students to distribute their term costs over four installment payment dates during a traditional term; four installments for fall and four installments for spring. There is a $25 non-refundable installment plan enrollment fee payable at time of enrollment; this fee is not included as part of the installment payment plan. Students must complete an enrollment form and pay the $25 fee each term. To avoid account holds and a monthly late fee of $30, please remit payment at time of submitting the Installment Plan Enrollment form. The form is available on the Business Office website and on MyIU, on the Student Finances page under Student Account Resources. For your convenience payments are accepted online by logging on to MyIU and clicking on SSIU. The minimum account balance to qualify for the installment plan is $200. Term installment due dates may be found on the enrollment form.
