STEP 1 - CORPORATE DEFERMENT LETTER
If you have a tuition reimbursement plan where your employer reimburses you upon receipt of final grades, you must submit a letter from your company on letterhead indicating that you are an employee of that company and are entitled to tuition reimbursement. Fax 412.396.5958,or email the letter to Mark Moore firstname.lastname@example.org in Student Accounts. This letter is required at the start of every semester (Fall, Spring, and Summer).
STEP 2 - NELNET
Midway through the term or semester, you will receive an email explaining NELNET (the company that handles deferred payments). Upon receipt of this email, you must then register online every term (terms 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5) to be eligible for deferment. Please note, you w ill berequired to submit a credit or banking card account number to complete the NELNET registration. You will have 4 weeks after the end of the term to pay tuition with no interest or fees attached. After 4 weeks, if payment is not received, you will be charged a $50 deferment fee through NELNET and your tuition will be charged to your banking or credit card.
Bill My Corporation
If your company will pay the University upon receipt of an invoice, you must submit a letter of credit or an employer authorization form (the employer authorization form originates from your company). The letter or form must be received at the beginning of every semester.
Monthly Payment Plan
Duquesne University provides an optional payment plan, administered by Nelnet Business Solutions, that allows parents and students to spread payment of tuition, fees, room and board over the course of the academic year, or over one semester. Payments are automatically deducted from your checking or savings account or charged to your credit card. To enroll, go directly to e-Cashier. Please note that enrollment is not automatic. A student must re-enroll each year or term.
Please contact Nelnet directly at 1.800.609.8056 if you have questions or need to modify an existing payment plan. Representatives are available Monday-Thursday: 8:30 am to 8 pm and Friday: 8:30 am to 5:00 pm (EST).
If you are not using a payment plan, Duquesne University requires that your student account be paid in full by the end of the first week of each term or semester. Student accounts that are not paid by that deadline, and are not enrolled in a payment plan, will have late fees assessed.
