Registration & Billing

The SP2 Registrar will register students in the DSW program for the appropriate courses prior to the beginning of each term. Students can check their registration and their academic record on Penn In Touch (PIT) (PennKey and password required).

Billing is managed through the University’s Office of Student Financial Services. Please consult their website on Billing and Payment to view payment options.

Students who owe tuition for a previous semester’s work and are placed on financial hold will not be registered for the next semester unless special arrangements for payment have been made with the Student Financial Services. Students who owe tuition or any other university related fees (such as library fees) will be excluded from graduation lists.

Please contact the SP2 Registrar with any questions regarding registration and billing.

Failure to Pay

All University bills for tuition and fees are due before or during the registration period each term, as specified. The University reserves the right to withhold registration material, transcripts, and all other information regarding the record of any student who is in arrears in the payment of tuition, fees, or other charges, including student loans, and to exclude such a student from classes and examinations. The student will be held accountable for all absences resulting from the operation of this rule. For continued delinquency in the payment of debts, the student may be permanently dropped from the University. The enforcement of this penalty shall not relieve the student from the obligation to pay outstanding fees and charges, including those for the term to which the penalty applies.

Refund of Tuition

A student who withdraws (or who is requested to withdraw for failure to maintain a satisfactory scholastic standard) or who is granted a leave of absence from a full-time division of the University during either term of the academic year will be eligible for a refund of tuition general fee in accordance with the conditions set forth below. The effective date of separation from the University is the date on which the student files a request for withdrawal or leave of absence in the Office of the Dean. The amount of refund allowable is as follows:

Separation occurring within:
The first two weeks of class……75%
Third and fourth weeks of class….50%
Weeks thereafter………………………0%

A student who is required to withdraw because of violation of University regulation shall receive no refund by reason of such a withdrawal.
