1. Do you have any payment plan options?
Yes. Bloomsburg University offers the option to make tuition payments on a monthly basis through your MyHusky account. For additional information, please visit our payment plan page.
2. My employer is reimbursing me for my class, what should I do with the bill?
The student may apply to have some or all of the charges deferred until the end of the semester by submitting an Application for Deferment and having the employer submit the Employer Certification of Eligibility for Tuition Deferment to the Student Billing Office before the end of the drop/add period. The student should make payment for the non-deferred fees before class begins. If you have any questions, you can contact the Student Billing Office at 570-389-4013.
3. How can I pay the balance on my account?
Payments can be made online by logging into MyHusky using your Husky ID and Husky ID password. Bloomsburg University accepts MasterCard, VISA, Discover, American Express, Diners Club, JCB Card, China Union Pay Card, BC Card, and Dina Card. This service is offered through a third party vendor, TouchNet, who charges a 2.85% convenience fee for each payment made by credit/debit card. Payment can also be made online by electronic check (eCheck). The eCheck option is a fast and secure method to pay your account from any checking account. There is no fee to pay by eCheck. As always, payments of cash, checks, and money orders will still be accepted in the Student Billing Office. In an effort to make the payment process more convenient and to streamline business processes, credit/debit card payments will be accepted online only. For those who do not have computer access, computers are located in Andruss Library.

12. What is FERPA?
The Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a Federal law that protects the privacy of student education records, both financial and academic. For the student’s protection, FERPA limits release of student record information without the student’s explicit written consent; however it also gives the student’s parent(s)/guardian(s) the right to review those records if the parent(s)/guardian(s) claim the student as a dependent on their Federal Income Tax Return. This form can be found on the student’s MyHusky account.
