Deferred Billing & Avoiding Late Fees

Many of our students’ employers provide tuition benefits and will reimburse students once their grades are issued. Typically, the University expects their money at the start of the semester, so students are billed upon registration and expected to pay before classes begin. The University has a program in place called Employer Funding to defer billing, but you must make prior arrangements before each new semester/session begins.

If your employer pays some or all of your tuition, please read the following information to defer your tuition payment and avoid late fees and a registration hold. This information also applies to UD employees who enjoy course fee waivers and funded full-time students.

Disregard this information only if you are paying out of pocket.

Avoiding Late Fees

You are required to submit information to Student Financial Services (SFS) by the payment due date (more about this below), even if you are not going to pay for the course. It is up to you to tell SFS how your tuition will be paid. You do this by running through the process listed above PRIOR to the Semester/Session Payment Due Date.

Payment Due Dates 

Payments are due by the first day of classes. Late fees apply after the first day of classes.
