For students who receive tuition reimbursement from their employer, tuition deferment is an available payment option. Tuition deferment requires that payment be received by Wilkes University no later than 30 days after a course ends.
Requests for deferment must be submitted prior to the start of each semester. Click here for the employer deferment form. Deferment applies only to the amount the employer will reimburse on tuition. It does not include fees, room and board, books or other charges unless otherwise noted by your employer. These charges must be remitted as required by Wilkes.
If a reimbursement check is not received 30 days after the conclusion of a course, the student is personally responsible for payment. Students with unpaid, past-due balances will be placed on financial hold, which will not allow course registration for the next semester, mailing of grades/official transcripts, and diplomas. Clearance forms cannot be signed until all outstanding account balances are paid in full.
