The student is responsible to ensure all Clarion University charges are paid or covered by financial aid by the beginning of each semester or session. Students with delinquent account balances will be charged a late fee and will not be permitted to register for courses. Academic records (transcripts and diplomas) will be withheld until all charges have been paid in full. To avoid late payment fees, all charges not covered by financial aid should be paid by the start of the semester.
Tuition is normally reviewed and set annually by the State System of Higher Education Board of Governors; however, tuition is subject to change at any time by the board.
All fees appearing on the student account are payable whether or not the student plans to use these services. These fees are used to support student activities and the operation of the university facilities and are subject to change.
Room and Board charges are normally reviewed and set annually by the Clarion University Council of Trustees; however, room and board is subject to change at any time by the council.
University Refunds of tuition and fees for class withdrawal are granted in accordance with the policy established by the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education Board of Governors and are subject to change at any time by the board. To receive a refund, students must officially withdraw through the Registrar's Office. A 100 percent refund will be granted only if a student officially withdraws before or on the first day of classes. After the first day of classes, partial refunds are granted. Refunds for fall/spring sessions that start on dates other than the official fall and spring class start dates are determined independently based on the session start date and length.
Initial fall and spring semester invoices are provided to students approximately 30 days prior to the start of the semester.
Initial Winter Intersession and Summer session 1, 2 and 3 invoices are provided to students approximately 10 days prior to the start of these sessions.
The university sends postcard notification of initial semester or session billing to the student's home address.
Students are notified via their Clarion University MyClarion email when an invoice has been posted to their account.
Instructions for viewing and printing invoices can be found on the student MyClarion documentation page.
The university does not mail invoices to enrolled students. Students should print and provide invoices to other parties as needed from their MyClarion account.
A Monthly Payment Plan option is offered to Clarion University students. Please refer to the billing information sent with each semester's initial billing for payment plan information.
