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. To request the paperwork for this option please contact the Bursar's Office.
Accounts must be in good standing to be eligible for an Employer Reimbursement Tuition deferment.
Students wishing to defer their bill must pay $275 per registered class. This is the amount regardless of course costs or student status. In addition, the following documents must still be received. Without the payment, signed form, and proof of benefit, we will not defer your account. This means your account would be considered unpaid and eligible for removal.
Students should be prepared to supply the following when requesting this deferment option:
- Payment of the $275 per course. $25 is retained by KU for costs per term or session, 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 a deferment document prepared by the KU Bursar's Office.
- This will be emailed to your KU email account in a pdf document so that you can print it and supply all items to us at once.
The deferment coding will NOT be added to your account until all items above are supplied.
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. 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.
