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.


Payment Policy

Tuition, charges and fees are assessed on a term basis and are due in full by the term payment due date unless the student is enrolled in 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 payment 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, receive grades, teacher certifications, transcripts or diploma.


Collection Practices

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 accounts are sent a letter from Immaculata requesting payment in full. If payment is not received within a specified timeframe, the accounts are placed with a letter writing agency, which issues reminder letters to the students on behalf of the University. If an outstanding balance remains after the series of letters are sent, Immaculata makes one last attempt to collect payment prior to assigning the accounts 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 to reimburse Immaculata for fees of any collection agency, which may be based on a percentage of the debt up to a maximum of 40% of the debt, and all costs and expenses, including reasonable attorney's fees, incurred in the collection efforts. 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.


Payment Methods

Payments may be made by check, cash, or any major credit card. Payments are accepted online by logging into 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, P.O. Box 631, Immaculata, PA 19345. Questions may be directed to or by phone at 484-323-3174.


IU Installment Payment Plan

Immaculata offers an installment plan which allows students to distribute term costs over three installment payment dates during a traditional term; three installments for fall, three installments for spring, and three installments for summer. 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. Forms are also available on MyIU, on the Campus Life tab, under Business Office. For your convenience, payments are accepted online by logging on to MyIU and clicking on SSIU (Self-Service IU). The minimum account balance to qualify for the installment plan is $200. Term installment due dates may be found on the enrollment form.
