WSU does not mail billing statements for tuition and fees. That information is readily available to all students on-line 24 hours a day, seven days a week at myWSU. The new Fall charges will appear on your account prior to August 1st and financial aid will appear on or near the Monday before the semester begins; Spring charges will appear prior to Fall term Finals Week, or upon semester registration. Your account balance should be accurate by the Friday before each semester begins. Keep in mind, changes to enrolled classes, can effect postings of special course fees and/or digital course fees. Your student will need to monitor those updates if necessary. Please access your account at that time and pay on line. Tuition and mandatory fees are always due the first class day for Fall and Spring terms. Late payment fees will begin within the upcoming weeks after classes have started; please refer to the Academic Calendar found here for specific dates. Be sure to access your account on-line and pay on-line to avoid any potential penalties. Full time fees are the same whether you are in 10 credits or 18 credits. If you add or drop classes, the charges will most likely stay the same for tuition. There may be a small difference in Special Course Fees. Please pay the full time tuition and mandatory fees by the first class day and do not wait for changes in Course Fees before you pay or you risk getting late fees.

Mandatory fees include student health fee, student rec center fee, student transit fee, media fee, student stadium renovation fee, Chinook building, food pantry and student union building.

It is imperative that you communicate your account information timely with your parents or any other party who may be making payment on your behalf. They won’t have access to your account as that is private information that WSU can’t share with anyone other than the student without permission. Students are able to grant third party access to their parents or other third parties. They can choose from many options and grant just specific area access that they choose to share. Please see the attached step-by-step instructions to setup Third Party Authorization/

Adding Classes: Any classes added after the second Friday of class, must be paid for at the time the credits are added. Payment deadlines are still applicable on added classes, and if not met, will result in the application of late fees or disenrollment fees to the account. Late Registration Fees: Students enrolling after the close of registration, on 08/22/2021 (Fall) and 01/09/2022 (Spring), but before 08/28/2021 (Fall) and 01/15/2022 (Spring), will be charged a $25.00 late registration fee. After these dates, the late registration fee increases to $100.00. See Academic Calendar.

Checks not honored: Checks written by the student or by someone else for the account which are returned to WSU unpaid for any reason will result in a $30.00 unpaid check fee charged to the student. If the check had originally been written to pay for tuition, it will be considered as not being made and late payment fees will apply if applicable.

Records Hold: Transcripts, diploma’s and registrations may be held for unpaid overdue charges owed to the University.

Refund Policy: Withdrawal from the University may result in the application of an administrative cancellation fee. Please read “Tuition Adjustment Policy” in the applicable semester Time Schedule.

Course Withdrawals After the 30th Day: No tuition adjustment for individual course withdrawals will be made beginning 30 calendar days after the start of the semester. For example, a student who is enrolled in 16 credit hours and withdraws after the fourth week from a 3-credit course and adds a 3-credit course is accountable for 19 hours. In this example, the student would owe for the one credit over 18 credits.

Full refunds of the additional per credit hour charges (for each credit over 18) are given if the credit load is reduced to 18 hours or fewer within the first 30 calendar days of the semester.

Past Due Accounts

In the event that you fail to pay your account, causing it to be referred to a collection agency, you are responsible for payment of the account, all additional collection fees, attorney’s fees, and related charges. Delinquent accounts are reported to credit bureaus. This will have a negative impact on your credit history. Transcripts and diplomas will be held.
