Deferment Information

Graduate Tuition Employer Deferment Information

If your graduate tuition at Lehigh University is reimbursed to you by your employer, you can request a deferment of the payment of your graduate tuition. You may defer your tuition until a date later than registration, which is specified by the Bursar's Office each semester, or until the date of the reimbursement from your company, whichever is sooner. A new deferment form must be completed and submitted and a deferment fee paid EACH semester you wish to defer your tuition.

To receive a deferment, print a copy of the Graduate Tuition Deferment Request and complete all student information, as well as the Payment and Deferment Calculation and sign the form where indicated. There is a $50.00 fee each time you wish to have your tuition deferred . The deferment fee and any other charges on the student account must be paid in full by the payment due date for that semester in order to complete registration. The deferment is for your tuition only.

Have your employer complete and sign the section entitled "Company Information" or attach a signed letter from your company indicating that they have a tuition reimbursement policy. The letter should indicate that you are specifically eligible for a tuition reimbursement benefit for the requested semester.

Submit the complete request along with any payment due, including the deferment fee, to the Bursar's Office by the application due date for the semester you wish to defer your tuition. Please direct any questions to the Bursar's Office at 610-758-3160. The form may be submitted electronically using our secure Lehigh FileSenderfaxed to our offices at 610-758-3033,  or mailed to:
