Review the current tuition and fees matrix to get a good idea. The amount of tuition and mandatory fees will be assessed depending on the number of credits you have registered to take. Please note, these numbers are only an estimate; there may be additional fees that correspond to specific classes.

We begin generating bills for fall in mid-July, for spring in mid-November, and for summer in mid-April.

Tuition and fees for fall and spring are due the Friday before classes begin. For summer fees, your registration date will determine your due date. Please review your initial billing statement for more details.

Purdue Fort Wayne does not send paper bills. The Office of the Bursar will send a notification to your student email when new statements are generated. It is then your responsibility to log in to goPFW and review your student account eStatement.

There are three ways you can pay: 

  • Online with American Express, Discover, Mastercard, Visa, or electronic funds transfer from your checking or savings account or through Western Union 
  • In person at our office with cash, check, or money order 
  • Via mail by check or money order

Please review and enroll in a deferred payment plan—it’s easy. 

If these plans will not work, please come and speak to us. We can work with you to keep you in school, at least for the current semester.

Yes. Your student account has been given a temporary credit for the amount of expected aid. Please enroll in a deferred payment plan for the difference now—you do not need to wait for the aid to disburse.

Review the following information: 

  • If your student has added you as an authorized user, then we are able to verify and discuss account-specific information with you. 
  • If you are not an authorized user, we cannot discuss the account with you. 
  • If your student adds you as an authorized user, you will then receive billing statements and access to the bursar account, and we will be glad to answer your questions.

Students who use a credit or debit card to pay tuition, fees, fines, and other student account expenses will be charged a 2.95 percent processing fee (minimum of $3) by TouchNet PayPath. See our credit card convenience fees FAQ for more information.

The Office of Financial Aid will begin disbursement of funds the week before classes start. Once funds are disbursed and all student account tuition and fees are paid, any eligible excess aid will be refunded. 

The fastest way to get your refund is to use our direct deposit option. For more information, please read about our refunding process
