Completing Your eBill Registration

The Penn State registration process consists of two steps. First, the student initiates registration by selecting specific courses. Second, the student completes registration upon payment of tuition and fees or confirmation of registration electronically (i.e., when all charges will be covered by financial aid).

The eBill includes the amount due as well as anticipated payments resulting from applicable scholarships, loans, and other forms of financial assistance. In some cases, because of anticipated financial aid, a student may not be required to make a payment to the University. In other cases, a student may be due a refund from the University. IN ALL CASES, REGARDLESS OF THE AMOUNT DUE, ACTION IS REQUIRED TO COMPLETE THE REGISTRATION PROCESS AS FOLLOWS:

  1. Go to eLion at
  2. Select “Students” and login with your User ID and password
  3. Select your “Bursar Tuition Bills” from the left-hand menu
  4. Select your Tuition Bill and click “View/Pay Bill”
  5. Select either:
    1. “Without a payment” — This option will only be available if you have enough loans and scholarships to cover all charges.
    2. "Pay amount due"
    3. "Enroll in the Deferred Payment Plan"
    4. "Pay other"
  6. Select “Continue”
  7. Select your method of payment and click “Continue”
    1. Make a payment using an eCheck (Note: Must be a personal checking account drawn on a U.S. bank)
      1. Complete all the information and click “Continue” 
      2. Review information displayed and click “Accept/Pay Now”
    2. Make a payment using a credit card: MasterCard, Discover, Visa and American Express. (Note: There is a 2.5% convenience fee charged when using a credit card.)
      1. Select “Checkout”
      2. Complete all information and select “Click here to Purchase”
    3. Print payment stub to send payment by mail
      1. Detach the bottom portion of the payment stub and mail it with your check/money order. Please write your PSU ID number on your check/money order.

You will receive confirmation that your registration is complete if you pay the required amount due or enroll in the Deferred Payment Plan. If using "Pay Other" and amount paid is less than the full amount due and less than the amount needed to enroll in the Deferred Payment Plan, registration will not be completed.
