Employer Reimbursement Deferments

Students who are entitled to reimbursement of tuition from employers may request an employer reimbursement deferment until the due date on the initial bill received.  Once the semester starts, this option is no longer available and payment is due in full to remain unrestricted.  These are processed through Kutztown University's Bursar Office only. Complete this form, sign it, and fax it or scan/email it to us along with the proof from your employer.  The payment of the fee is required to complete the request.

Accounts must be in good standing to be eligible for an Employer Reimbursement Tuition deferment.  Prior default of this option may cause a request to be denied.

Requests for the deferment of the tuition based on an employer reimbursement must include all three of the following:

  • Payment of the $275 per course (regardless of course costs or student status). $25 is retained by KU for costs per term or session (non-refundable). The balance is posted to the student's account as a credit toward invoice.
  • Proof of the benefit entitlement - various items may suffice for this proof.  The most common of which is a document showing the courses were approved by your employer.  A letter from your employer stating your eligibility for employer reimbursement may be submitted as well.
  • Signature on the completed deferment request form.

The deferment coding will NOT be added to your account until all items above are supplied.  If not supplied by the due date or within one week of request, the account will not be deferred, and due dates will remain applicable for the full balance.  Non-payment may result in course removal, OR collections processing.

We highly encourage students who utilize this deferment option to print off their grade report promptly at the conclusion of the class, and to submit the reimbursement request to their employers immediately.  Any delay in payment of the tuition may result in a late fee and/or restriction placed on the account.  If an account is restricted due to non-payment, you will be unable to register for future terms, view grades, obtain transcripts (both official and unofficial) or receive a diploma. If your account is restricted, we cannot lift it until the delinquent payment is made in full.
