I would like to earn a certificate from Neumann University. How do I get
Everyone begins by completing an application form. You can do this online for free at www.neumann.edu. Otherwise, complete a hard copy application form and submit it with a $50 application fee to the Office of Admissions.
But this is only the first step of the application process. After submitting your application you will need to call any previous colleges you have attended and ask that your transcripts be sent in a sealed envelope directly to Neumann University's Office of Admissions at One Neumann Drive, Aston PA 19014-1298.
Do I have to wait until I am officially accepted before signing up
for my first course?
With your advisor's permission you can sign up for a class, in good faith that you will complete the application requirements at your earliest convenience.
How do I register for a class?
A Suggested Program Plan is created with your advisor at your first meeting. This plan will determine which classes you should take each semester to complete your degree. After your first meeting you must initiate contact with your advisor before the start of each semester. You should contact your advisor and ask him/her to sign you up for your next class. He/she will then forward your registration form to the Registrar's Office.
Advisor contact numbers are:
Certificates Programs: 610-361-5440
How will I know where my class will be held?
Class locations are printed on the bill that is sent to you. In addition class locations are posted at several places in the Bachmann Main Building, including the lobby, a few days before the start of classes.
Am I billed for the class?
Yes. Once the Registrar's Office has enrolled you for a class the Business Office will automatically generate a bill that is sent 10-14 days before your class starts. However, if you have an outstanding balance from the previous semester you will receive a notice of this rather than a bill. Once an outstanding balance has been cleared you will again need to register for your next class.
What are my payment options?
Our Business Office has several options for paying tuition that you can arrange in advance. These include:
Deferral Plan: This partial deferral allows the student to pay one-half
the tuition and fees at the publicized due date, with the balance due
in two payments later in the semester. Late payment fines apply to missed
payments. A $40.00 fee is charged for the Tuition Deferral option.
Tuition Management Plan: This 10-month payment plan starts June 1st
and extends through March 1st. Students may budget Fall and Spring semester
expenses into 10 equal payments. See the brochure in the Business Office
for further information regarding this plan. An annual fee which can
vary from year to year is charged for this option.
Employer-Reimbursement: Typically students are responsible for paying the first semester. After the first semester, the student would be eligible to receive an extension for payment as long as:
Methods of Payment: The Business Office accepts Visa, MasterCard and Discover credit cards (this process can be done in-person or by phone), debit cards and MAC. Personal checks, certified checks, money orders and cash are also accepted.

Discounts: A discount of 20% is given to full time employees under the Camden, Philadelphia or Wilmington Dioceses.
