Payment & Registration


There are two payment options:

  • Personal check* (made payable to Penn State University)
  • Direct bill to your department

*Self-payment must be received prior to the start of the program

The direct bill option will require you to obtain the following information:

  • Budget number
  • Budget location
  • Budget fund
  • Cost Center (optional)

Please Note: When choosing the direct bill payment option, a copy of your registration will be sent to your department's finance office. This will aid your finance office in paying your registration fee. Please be sure you are authorized and understand your department's policy regarding using the direct bill payment option. If your unit refuses to pay for this transaction, your registration will be cancelled. If you have any questions, please contact your HR Strategic Partner.

If a conflict arises that will prevent you from attending a for-fee program, please notify us no later than 14 days in advance of the program in order to receive a full refund. Cancellations made after this time will not receive a refund, however the option exists to send another person from your unit or department in your place.
