Billing and Payment

All billing, payments, and receipts are processed by the Student Accounts Office located on the first floor of the Reading Hospital School of Health Sciences (RHSHS) building. Approximately 30 days prior to each semester, students will receive email notices that their school WebConnect accounts have been updated with their current academic charges. All charges must be paid in full one week prior to the start of each new semester or the student will need to sign up for the RHSHS Payment Plan Option (PPO).

By registering for a course, or multiple courses, students accept responsibility for all charges associated with the enrolled semester, regardless of payment method. Financial obligations may include, but are not limited to, tuition, fees, housing, library materials or fines, and unpaid room damage charges.

Any student granted enrollment or registering after the start of a semester will receive a bill from the Student Accounts Office with payment due immediately.

Payments are accepted at the Student Accounts Office or can be sent by mail to:

RHSHS
Student Accounts Office
P.O. Box 16052
Reading, PA 19612-6052

Checks and money orders payable to: RHSHS

All major credit cards are accepted at the Student Accounts Office or by calling 484-628-0102.

Failure to Pay: A late charge of $25 and a financial “freeze” will be applied to any student’s account if payment is not received by the due date. Past due amounts plus late charges must be paid within 10 days. Failure to comply will result in the termination of the PPO and the full amount due immediately. A student, who has voluntarily withdrawn from school, is suspended, terminated, on a Leave of Absence (LOA) or Stop-out (a student unable to register for a class due to curriculum plan) will be responsible for amounts owed to the school. The RHSHS may take actions with respect to the participant or the student for whom amounts are budgeted including but not limited to suspension, termination and/or submitting past due accounts to its collection agency.

Failure of a student to meet his/her financial obligations, in addition to assessing late fees and placing a financial “freeze” on their account, can prohibit students from:

  • Registering for future classes
  • Attending class
  • Receiving grade reports, transcripts, or diploma
  • Continuing in the program
  • Graduating

See the RHSHS Tuition Payment Policy for more information.

Readmission Applicants: All former students reapplying to the RHSHS must have financial clearance before the application is considered for readmission.

Payment Plan Option (PPO)

The convenience of paying your tuition charges on a monthly basis is an attractive option for many families. The school provides an opportunity for students to pay current academic year educational expenses with interest-free installments each semester. Tuition charges are payable in four equal installments (initial deposit due one week before classes start plus three monthly installments). Payment Plans are available to all full-time and part-time students. If you would like to take advantage of the PPO you can download the Payment Plan Request Form and return it to the Student Accounts Office on or before the initial payment due date. For your convenience we’ve included with the PPO download a Credit Card Payment Release Form. Return the form with your payment plan request and we’ll make sure you never miss a payment or incur any late charges.
