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 charges will appear on your account on or near August 1st and financial aid will appear on or near the Thursday before the semester begins. Your account should be accurate by the Friday before the semester begins. Please access your account at that time and pay on line. Tuition and mandatory fees are due the first class day For Fall 2020 is August 24, 2020 and late payment fees begin to apply September 8, 2020. The first class day for Spring 2021 is January 11, 2021 and late payment fees begin to apply January 25, 2021. 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, 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 computer 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 http://www.esg.wsu.edu/student-information-system/third-party-access/ for more information on this valuable service.
Other Billing Information
Adding Classes: Any classes added after 09/04/2020 (Fall) and 01/22/2021 (Spring), 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 08/23/2020 (Fall) and 01/10/2021 (Spring), but before 08/39/2020 (Fall) and 01/23/2021 (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.
