Continuing Studies has built professional programs upon the firm foundation of the University's tradition of excellence and uses the standards of professional associations as the blueprint. These courses are designed to help you learn the best practices from professionals who are subject matter experts and who work in the field.
The Office of Continuing Studies offers professional education courses and programs. These are Non-Credit/Certificate Courses. If you are interested in Credit Courses please visit the Part-Time Studies website or call 610-519-4300.
All registrations can be submitted online or printed from the website and either faxed to 610-519-6144 or mailed to the Office of Continuing Studies, Stanford Hall, Ground Floor, 800 Lancaster Avenue, Villanova, PA 19085. To access the online registration form for each program use the "Jump To" menu on the right under "Quick Registration." Links to the online registration forms are also located on each individual program page.
Students and authorized users are able to view billing statements and make secured payments electronically. You can also print official invoices for self and employer use. Once you receive your confirmation and VU ID #, you may log onto V-Bill to create your V-Bill account and then view/pay your bill electronically. Bills will be available and updated on the 2nd, 11th, and 21st of each month.
Students have the option to pay by check, cash or credit card (only Master Card, Discover, or American Express accepted). There is a 2.75% convenience fee charged on all credit card transactions. If a student is paying by credit card and at a later date is entitled to a refund from the student's account, the convenience fee is non-refundable. Please keep this in mind when choosing a payment option. Additional options include paying the bill online from a checking or savings account or printing the bill and mailing a check. If you wish to pay with credit card, please access the credit card payment option under Bursar Links through your myNova account.
Payment of Charges
The student is responsible for payment of all charges on his/her account. Overdue obligations may be referred to a collection agency and reported to the credit bureaus. If any overdue obligation is referred to an outside collection agency or to an attorney for collection efforts and/or legal suit, the debt is increased to cover all reasonable costs of collection including collection fees, court costs and attorney fees.
In order to obtain a refund, you must submit a written request (by mail, fax, or e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org) that your registration be cancelled before the first day of class. Failing to attend class will not cancel your registration; therefore, you will be responsible for full payment.
If a student has any outstanding billing issues, registration will not be permitted and academic records, transcripts and certificates will not be released.
