The Drexel eBill

An overview of student billing at Drexel, including video and PDF guides, information about billing access for parents, and notification options.

Billing Policies and Procedures

Late Fees

If you do not pay your balance in full by the due date listed on your eBill, a late fee of 1% of the outstanding balance will be assessed to your account. The late fee will appear as a charge on your next month's eBill. Late fees will continue to accrue on your account every month that you continue to have an outstanding balance due.

Late fees charged to your account become part of your overall balance due to the University and you are responsible for paying them.

If you have questions regarding late fee(s) that have been assessed to your account, please contact Drexel Central via Ask Drexel.

Financial Holds

A financial hold is placed on your student account if you fail to pay your account balance listed on your eBill by the billing due date. A financial hold prevents you from performing any of the following actions:

A financial hold will only be removed once you have covered your outstanding balance in full. If you make a payment online by eCheck or credit card, your financial hold will be lifted within 24 hours; a financial hold can also be lifted immediately if you make a full payment in-person at the Cashier's window in the Drexel Central University City Campus office.

Housing Deposit

For students who reside in Drexel housing, housing deposits will be held until June. At the end of June, deposits will be applied to the student's account. If a student is assessed any housing damage charges, those charges will be deducted from the deposit before it is applied to the student's account.

Student Financial Obligation and Tuition Repayment Agreement

The Student Financial Obligation and Tuition Repayment Agreement (SFO) is designed to make students aware of their rights and responsibilities related to the bill they receive from Drexel University. Registering for classes and/or co-op generates a bill that is solely the student's responsibility to pay; to ensure that all students are aware of this responsibility, Drexel University requires all students to read the SFO and either agree or disagree to register for the upcoming term.

Reading and completing the SFO is done via DrexelOne once registration time tickets have opened for the following term. A student will be prompted to complete the SFO before they are allowed to register. If a student opts to disagree with the SFO, a hold will be placed on their account, preventing them from registering. Students are allowed to subsequently agree to the SFO and register for classes and/or co-op if they decide to after their initial response.

  Review the Agreement and Instructions for Completing Your SFO

Please note that the Student Financial Obligation is not the same as the required Enrollment Confirmation but is another pivotal process for each term of your enrollment at Drexel University.
