Company Reimbursement Program

Robert Morris University is pleased to offer the Company Reimbursement Program for students employed at companies offering tuition reimbursement.

To participate in the program the student must be in good financial standing, pay the non-refundable fee of $25 per semester, and provide a Visa, MasterCard or Discover credit card, which will only be charged in the event that the student account is not paid in full by the final balance due date of the semester.

The program allows students to defer payment of the reimbursed portion of their tuition until approximately 30 days after the end of the semester. The balance must be paid by the final balance due date regardless of whether the student has received reimbursement from his/her employer.

Any amount not covered by the employer's reimbursement policy must be paid in accordance with regular payment policies set forth by the University. This amount can be paid in three equal monthly payments according to the chart below:


Payment Chart

Semester Fall Spring Summer
Payment #1 OCT 1 MAR 1 JUN 15
Payment #2 NOV 1 APR 1 JUL 15
Payment #3 DEC 1 MAY 1 AUG 15
Final Balance Due FEB 1 JUN 1 SEP 1

Finance charges at a rate of 15% APR will accrue on the student's account based on the full semester balance. Students must pay finance charges only in the event that the account is not paid in full on or before the final balance due date. As long as the account remains current and is paid in full by the final balance due date, all finance charges are waived.


Terms and Conditions
  1. Enrollment in the Company Reimbursement Program must be completed each semester.
  2. A student can prepay at any time without penalty.
  3. If a student becomes unemployed for any reason, experiences a change in employment status or there is a change in the employer's reimbursement policy, the student is responsible for all tuition and fees not covered by the employer.
  4. If a student withdraws from a course or from the University completely, the refund policy described in the semester Schedule of Classes and on the University website at www.rmu.edu will be in effect.
  5. Prior to any refunds being issued, all other financial obligations to the University must be satisfied.
  6. If a student account for the semester is not paid in full by the final balance due date, the credit card number held by the Student Financial Services Office will be charged for the entire balance due.
  7. In the event that the balance due cannot be charged to the credit card number provided, the University may subject the student to penalties, including but not limited to the withholding of academic records, denial of registration for future terms, late payment fees, finance charges, collection costs, reasonable attorney's fees and court costs.

How to Apply
  1. Each semester, a letter from the student's employer, a completed enrollment form and the $25 nonrefundable enrollment fee must be submitted to the Student Financial Services Office. The letter is to contain verification of the student's employment and his/her eligibility to participate in the tuition reimbursement program, provide the amount of the company's reimbursement and outline any constraints or limitations of the employer's reimbursement policy.
  2. Once the company's tuition reimbursement program is verified by the University, the student is required to sign a contract with the University to finalize enrollment.
  3. Use the budget planner worksheet below to determine your monthly payments if your company does not reimburse 100 percent.
