Formal arrangements for sponsor payments should be made with the Student Financial Services office. Veteran’s Education benefits are obtained by contacting Veteran Student Services. Student Financial Services will invoice a third-party sponsor on behalf of a student, however, if the sponsor does not pay by the terms stated on the invoice, the student will be held responsible for the balance due. The student will be subject to all collection proceedings which include registration and diploma holds.

Books and Supplies

Purchases are made directly from the University Bookstore. Checks, Eagle Dollars, Visa, MasterCard, and American Express are accepted. Students whose anticipated financial aid is higher than the total amount for tuition and fees may either use their excess financial aid to purchase the books through the online bookstore or request an Eagle Dollars transfer online or at ERNIE Central up to $700.00.

Delinquent Accounts

Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University is a not-for-profit institution of higher learning. As such, student receivable accounts are considered to be educational loans offered for the sole purpose of financing an education and are not dischargeable in bankruptcy proceedings.

When a student’s account is delinquent, the student is notified via email to their ERAU email address. A delinquent student account will result in suspension of all academic processing and information on class performance. Grades and diplomas may be withheld, as well as future enrollments. Sums remaining unpaid will be charged interest at the maximum rate allowed by law. The student is also subject to the costs of collection, which may be based on a percentage at a maximum of 33% of the debt and will be added to your student account balance. In addition, all costs and expenses, including reasonable attorney’s fees we incur, will be passed on to the student.
