 If you are a student tenant and waiting on financial aid to pay rent you must contact the office for a due date extension

How do I pay rent using financial aid?
We know paying for college can be difficult, so we welcome students who will need to use financial aid to pay rent

If you are paying with loans all we ask is for proof of funds (SIS screenshot, letter from lender, ect..) you then will be granted a financial aid extension for rent due date.

Depending what type of loan you are applied for and where your refund is scheduled to be deposited depends how you will pay.

If you use the Penn College Bank Mobile Vibe account here are directions how to pay! You can also refer to their website.  https://bankmobilevibe.com/

If your refund is going to another bank account you can simply write a check from that account, obtain a cashier’s check from the bank, take cash out, or if you use online banking you can use bill pay to send payments.
