Student Handbook: General Information T-Z


The University operates a shuttle service with both on-campus and off-campus routes. For schedules and more information visit the Parking and Transportation webpage. You must show your Wildcard to board the shuttle.

Buses traveling on Lancaster Avenue and the High Speed Line running between West Philadelphia and Norristown have stops at the University and provide public transportation from many of the local communities.

A commuter train runs through the campus with a station stop near the Law School building. Information concerning schedules and rates may be obtained from the stationmaster, on the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority website, or by calling SEPTA at 215-580-7800.

Tuition Payment

Bills for tuition and fees are electronically presented on the Bursar’s website and mailed to each student by the University Bursar’s Office. Any questions concerning the payment of tuition and fees should be directed to that Office, not to the Law School.

A student who has any outstanding debt to the University, and who has not made arrangements for payment with the Bursar’s Office, may be prevented from registering, pre-registering, taking examinations, or receiving grade reports, bar certifications, transcripts, and diplomas. The University has no institutional provision for the payment of tuition and fees through an installment plan. However, as a service to our students and their families, the University makes available information concerning commercially available tuition payment plans. This information may be obtained from the Bursar’s Office in Kennedy Hall on main campus.

In the event of withdrawal from the Law School, the University will make an appropriate refund of tuition. The formula for tuition refund is available on the Financial Aid webpage.
