Billing Information

Tuition Statement Timing:

  • Statements generated: the 1st of every month
  • Bill due date: the 22nd of every month

On the first of the month, you will receive an e-mail which tells you that your statement is ready to view. This statement will list all billable costs and the most current known financial aid. You will not be receiving a paper bill in the mail.

Typically, tuition payments are due on the 22nd of the month for each semester:

  • Fall Semester: Due in August
  • Spring Semester: Due in December* (Due to the Holidays, this date is subject to change)
  • Summer Semester: Due in May

Paying Your Bill

Lionpath /Cashnet is a safe and easy way to pay your bill online. In your Self-Service Center, click on "Manage my Account/Make a Payment" which will route you to Cashnet.

*Please be sure your browser allows pop-ups, as this will be opening in a new window.

In Cashnet, you will find two easy ways to pay your bill:


  • Personal checking/savings account drawn from a U.S. bank
  • *There is NO FEE to pay using a checking or savings account

Credit Card:

  • Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express
  • *There is 1.5% convenience fee for using a card

We must receive all payments on or before the due date on your bill in order to avoid a nonrefundable late fee. This includes check payments mailed to the campus. Please mail any checks to the address in the “Contact Information” box on the previous page.

Installment Payment Plan:

Enrolling in Penn State's Installment Payment Plan allows you to pay your tuition bill in installments over three months.

A $45 non-refundable fee covers all administrative costs for the payment plan and is due with the first payment.
The first one-third of billable costs is payable by the due date of the tuition bill.
You can make payments by e-check or credit card and they will be auto-deducted on the 22nd of each month.
You must re-enroll for the plan each semester you choose to use this method of payment.

To enroll in the Installment Payment Plan, please visit Lionpath and click on “Manage my account/Make a payment” to be routed to Cashnet where you will see the option to enroll. Once again, please be sure your browser has pop-ups enabled.
