Third Party Payment

For third party awards, billing and eligible tuition credits (originals only), all paperwork must be submitted to the Bursar's office by the due date of the original bill. Students may subtract the amount of their award and must pay their portion by the due date of the original bill. Late fees will be assessed if tuition credits or third party paperwork are filed late. It is the student's responsibility to communicate with their third party if payment is not received within 30 days and it is the student who will be responsible for any balance not covered by their third party.

**A returned check or rejected e-check will result in a $30 fee.All payments are subject to verification, which could delay the removal of an administrative hold. Please arrange your payment accordingly. Call the office if you have questions.

Nonpayment will result in an administrativehold being placed on a student account which will prevent a student from:

  1. registering for a subsequent semester
  2. getting grades
  3. graduating

Additionally, nonpayment is also subject to a $70 late payment fee per school term.

Important:Bills unpaid for 3 months after the end of the semester for which they are due will be sent to collections. Accounts in collection are assessed a 25% collection fee.

Monthly Payment Plan

The Bursar's Office offers a monthly payment plan for current semesters through Flywire. This is an interest-free way of paying tuition in equal monthly payments with a one-time non-refundable enrollment fee per semester. This non-refundable fee is charged by Flywire at time of enrollment.

The benefits of the monthly payment plan:

  • More time to pay.
  • Avoid high interest rates.
  • Create smaller, more manageable payments.
  • Reduce the amount you need to borrow.

Important notes:

*Failure to enroll by the due date on the e-bill will result in a late fee and an administrative hold being placed on your WISER account.

*Payments are auto-debited monthly.

*Payments are due on the 1st business day of each month.

*Payments made after these dates may lead to removal from the payment plan which is subject to late payment fees and an administrative hold being placed on your WISER account.

*You will not receive invoices (e-Bills). Please refer to Account Activityto view payments, remaining balance, orprint Term Statementif necessary.

*Third party payments cannot be used as a monthly payment while on the payment plan. However, a third party payment would reduce your overall balance, creating a smaller monthly payment.
