Financial Aid and Other Financial Information

Payment Procedures

Students may view and pay all account activity, including balance due, online in ERNIE > Campus Solutions Student Homepage > Finances > My Student Account. At the Prescott Campus accepted pay-methods include debit card (in person), personal check, money order, cashier’s check, electronic check, wire transfer (fees may apply), credit card (online only and fees apply) including VISA, Master Card, Discover, and American Express. Payments made by mail should be addressed to Student Financial Services/Cashier's Office, 3700 Willow Creek Rd., Prescott, AZ 86301, and timed to arrive by the published payment deadline. Charges incurred after the payment deadline are due immediately through the end of the Add/Drop period. Miscellaneous charges (i.e., parking and library fines, etc.) are due 30 days from the date of the charge or the last day of class, whichever occurs first.

Payment Plans and Deferments

Students with accepted financial aid will receive a deferment for the amount of accepted financial aid only. Charges not covered by accepted financial aid must be paid by the payment deadline or students may utilize the ERAU payment plan.

Payment plans are available each semester for all charges, excluding flight costs, books, supplies, and course materials. You may enroll in a payment plan for each semester that you are registered. Students may enroll in one payment plan at a time, and the payment plan must be paid in full before the start of any subsequent semester/term. Plans are available online 30 days prior to the start of each semester and must be on file by the payment due date. An enrollment fee of $65.00 is added to your first payment.

Any student whose tuition and fees are paid by a third party (Foreign Embassy, U.S. Government, Trust Account, sponsor, etc.) is considered a Sponsored student. Formal arrangements for sponsor payments should be made with the Student Financial Services/Cashier’s Office.

Veteran’s education benefits are obtained by contacting the Veteran’s Affairs Office. The Student Financial Services/Cashiers Office 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. Cash, credit and debit card, and Eagle Dollars are accepted. Students whose anticipated financial aid is higher than the total amount for tuition and fees may request that these funds be transferred to their Eagle Card by the Cashier's Office for book purchases.

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, registration for that term is subject to cancellation and registration for any subsequent semester will be denied. Delinquency will result in administrative withdrawal from the University. Administrative withdrawal will not relieve a student of the obligation to pay outstanding debts. A delinquent student account will result in suspension of all academic processing and information on class performance, and grades will 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 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.

Delinquent accounts may be reported to one or all three major credit bureaus.
