Payment Options

As a La Roche University student, you have several options when it comes to paying for your education.

Payment arrangements for student account balances in excess of financial aid awards must be made using one of the following methods:

  • Cash, check or money order.
  • Credit card (online only). Service fees apply.
  • Electronic check (online only). Service fees apply.
  • Payment plan.
  • Tuition reimbursement.
  • Third-party billing.

Cash or Check Payment

You may make payments by cash or check* in person at the cashier’s window of the Office of Student Accounts, located in the Zappala Campus Center. Make checks payable to La Roche University. If mailing a check, please send to:

La Roche University
Office of Student Accounts
9000 Babcock Boulevard
Pittsburgh, PA 15237

*Please include your student ID number on the check. Do not send cash.

Any check or returned ACH payment due to non-sufficient funds is subject to a $25 service charge.

Internet ACH Payments

Internet ACH Payment (Check) is a secure method for paying your bill in a timely fashion. To make an electronic check payment, log in to your account. A service fee is charged for this option. Make sure you follow the instructions very carefully and input your bank’s routing number and your account number (checking or savings account). DO NOT use your debit card number.

Credit Card Payments

Credit card payments are accepted and processed by CASHNet, a third-party processor, operating under agreement with La Roche to process electronic payments on your behalf. A processing fee will apply. Discover, MasterCard, Visa and American Express are accepted. Using credit cards for the payment of tuition will only be accepted online and not in the Office of Student Accounts.

Cash, checks, credit cards and money orders are accepted forms of payment for current term balances. Past due and prior term balances can only be paid with cash, money order or certified checks.

Please note: All web payment transactions completed after 6 p.m. EST will be effective the following business day.

Payment Plan

La Roche offers a payment plan that allows you to divide tuition and other expenses not covered by financial aid into smaller monthly payments. Through this payment plan, you may divide payments over four months for each semester.

You must enroll in a payment plan online through your portal each semester. An enrollment fee of $25 is required for confirmation of enrollment.

In order to avoid Registration Cancellation, you must enroll in a payment plan prior to the tuition due date each semester.

We do not have year-long payment plans.

If you need help calculating your budget, a representative from the Office of Student Accounts will help you. Call us at 412-536-1030.

Outside Payment Policies

Tuition Reimbursement

Many employers reimburse students based on satisfactory completion of the coursework for a given semester. An employer may require a student to submit grades and a tuition statement before being reimbursed.

A completed Verification of Benefits form, signed by the student’s human resources department, is required of all students who obtain tuition reimbursement. Tuition payment will be due 30 days from the date the previous semester’s grades are posted by La Roche.

A Verification of Benefits form must be filled out every semester and submitted to the office by the tuition due date.

Third-Party Billing

Some companies and government agencies pay their students’/employees’ tuition directly to La Roche. To ensure that this happens properly each semester, the Office of Student Accounts must receive authorization from the third party for a student’s tuition and/or fees on company letterhead by the tuition due date.

Please note that this process does not automatically renew each semester. Student Accounts requires valid authorization every semester that classes are taken.

Important information regarding tuition reimbursement and third-party billing: Payment of tuition and fees is the responsibility of the student. In the event the sponsor does not make full payment, all charges and late fees will be the responsibility of the student.

Late Charges & Holds

The student is responsible for ensuring that all La Roche University charges are paid or covered with financial aid by the tuition due date each semester.

A financial hold will be posted to students with delinquent accounts of $50 or more. An account is considered delinquent if invoice charges are not paid by the tuition due date.

A registration hold will be posted for all outstanding registration related fees. Students will not be permitted to register for courses, and academic records (transcripts and diplomas) will be withheld until the financial registration hold is released.

Your account will accrue a late fee of 1.5% per month if it is not paid by the posted due date.

Should it be necessary, you will be responsible for the cost of collection, all attorneys’ fees and all charges necessary for the collection of the amount not paid to La Roche University.
