Corporate Payment Options

Chatham University is pleased to offer several corporate related payment options. These payment options are available for any student employed at a company offering tuition assistance benefits. Payment options are offered year round, however, students must enroll each term they wish to participate. Enrollment in any of the Corporate Payment Options is free provided a completed application and all required documents are received each term by the add/drop deadline. Applications received after the term add/drop deadline will be charged a $50 late processing fee. To enroll in any of the Corporate Payment Options students must be registered for classes and be in good financial standing with the university. Available payment options include:

  • COMPANY BILLING PROGRAM
    The Company Reimbursement Program is offered for students who work for an employer who offers tuition reimbursement. The program allows students to defer payment of the reimbursed portion of their educational expenses until 30 days after the end of the term. Students are required to submit a completed Corporate Payment Options Application & Contract and a letter from their employer verifying employment and eligibility to participate in their company's tuition reimbursement program. Any amount not covered by tuition reimbursement must be paid in accordance with standard Chatham University payment policies. Company reimbursement may be counted as a financial aid resource for students receiving financial aid assistance. Applications for this program must be received by the close of the add/drop period.
  • COMPANY REIMBURSEMENT PROGRAM
    The Company Billing Program is offered for students who work for an employer that requests to be billed directly for their employee's tuition and fees. With Company Billing, Chatham University will bill the company directly following the term add/drop deadline. The company is required to pay upon receipt of invoice. Students are required to submit a completed Corporate Payment Options Application & Contract and a letter of authorization and/or tuition voucher authorizing Chatham University to bill the company directly. A detailed explanation of coverage and invoicing details must be included. Any amount not covered by company billing must be paid in accordance with standard Chatham University payment policies. Company billing may be counted as a financial aid resource for students receiving financial aid assistance. Applications for this program must be received by the close of the add/drop period.
  • TUITION ADVANCEMENT
    Tuition Advancement is a special program for employees of the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC). Students must first submit the completed Corporate Payment Options Application & Contract in order to receive a special UPMC invoice. The student submits this invoice to the UPMC Employee Service Center along with the required UPMC advancement application. The Employee Service Center will process the advancement request and provide the student with an advancement letter indicating the amount of advancement. The student then submits the advancement letter to Chatham as a form of payment. Chatham University will then bill UPMC for all advancement amounts. Any amount not covered by tuition advancement must be paid in accordance with standard Chatham University payment policies. Tuition advancement may be counted as a financial aid resource for students receiving financial aid assistance. Applications for this program must be received by the close of the add/drop period.
  • CORPORATE TUITION REDUCTION
    As an added benefit for students participating in a corporate payment option, Chatham University has teamed up with a number of companies to offer a special 20% tuition reduction benefit. If a student's employer is listed on our current approved company list at time of application, and the student is eligible for tuition benefits during that semester they will receive this reduction automatically, provided all eligibility requirements are met. By receiving the 20% reduction students will not be eligible for any other reduced tuition rates offered by the University. Additionally, if a student already receives a reduced tuition rate, which includes all Undergraduate Chatham Aid, they will not be eligible for the corporate tuition reduction benefit. As required by federal guidelines, the 20% tuition reduction must be counted as a financial aid resource for students receiving financial aid assistance.
