The Cashier’s Office is responsible for receiving and processing all student payments, whether made online, in-person, or by mail. The office also handles all petty cash disbursements and provides miscellaneous services.

Initial semester statements will be sent by mail, but additional account balance notices will be emailed to students at their University email addresses. Students may access an on-line real-time statement at any time via WebAdvisor.   

Payment

The University accepts cash, checks, and money orders, as well as MasterCard, American Express, Visa, and Discover, as payment for tuition, fees, residence halls, food plans, and parking.

Payment for each semester is due and payable upon receipt of the invoice and may be remitted by mail or in person to the Cashier.

Students have the convenience of making electronic payments to their tuition accounts 24 hours a day by utilizing the Make a Payment option in Workday. Parents can be given their own access to Workday by the student, as well as their own login to our cashiering system, Touchnet. Instruction on how to set these processes up can be found on the Workday Student Portal. The student accounts office and cashier cannot set up third party access on behalf of the student.

Anyone who uses a credit card to pay a student account will be charged a nonrefundable convenience fee equal to 2.85% of the transaction—100% of this fee will be retained by the processor and related banks that are providing the credit card service; therefore, the fee will not appear on the student’s University account. The fee will pertain to any credit card payment made on a student account, whether by mail, phone, Cashier’s Office, or Workday. E-check payments made on Workday will not be charged a convenience fee. Any questions about making electronic payments should be directed to the Cashier at 215-596-8857.

Payments may be transacted directly at the Cashier’s Window, by mail, or online via Workday/Touchnt. All check payments can be deposited at any time in the Cashier’s Deposit Slot located directly on the Cashier’s door.

Payments mailed in should be sent to the following address:

University of the Sciences in Philadelphia
Box 91 Cashier
600 South 43rd Street
Philadelphia, PA 19104

If you should have any additional questions please feel free to contact us at: cashier@usciences.edu.

Students encountering difficulties in resolving their financial obligations are encouraged to see Student Accounts (Kline Hall – Room 107) for assistance in meeting their responsibilities. The University has payment plan options for your convenience: TMS (Tuition Management Systems).

Students with outstanding indebtedness may not attend classes until payment is made. Failure to pay a past due account will result in the account being placed on a “financial hold” status, barring registration for future semesters, release of grades and academic transcripts. In addition, accounts in serious default will be reported to a collection agency, credit bureau and legal counsel. Collections expenses equal to 50% of the outstanding charges and other such costs will be added to the amount due.
