Paying Your Bills - FAQs
Specific payment due dates are published for each semester by the Student Financial Services Office. Typically, all amounts due for a semester are to be paid in full on or before the sixth day of each semester (Summer due dates are the 2nd day of each session). Any charges to the student’s account after the sixth day of classes (2nd day of each summer term)are due immediately. This includes charges due to dropping or adding a course, fines or other fees or charges. If you cannot make payment in full on or before the sixth day of the semester (2nd day of each summer session) due to pending financial aid or other issues please complete the Exception to Payment Policy Form and submit to Student Financial Services before the payment due date.
Charges have appeared on your account since the refund was ordered. This can occur due to a number of circumstances such as adding classes, library fines, parking tickets and other miscellaneous charges.
For questions relating to a specific charge on your bill, please contact the office from which the charge originated (i.e. Library, Campus Security, etc..) or Student Financial Services at (402) 375-7229.
A printed bill can be printed from WildcatsOnline.
As a cost saving measure, we strongly recommend that bills be viewed and printed online. However, a student may request a printed copy of their bill by visiting Student Financial Services in the Hahn Administration Building, Room 104. This request will only be accepted from the student.

Students become obligated and agree to pay all academic charges when they register for each term. Charges include tuition, fees, room, meal plans, and all other amounts that may be assessed. These charges are subject to refund only to the extent allowed under Wayne State College’s Tuition Refund Policy and Refund Schedule. If a student has not paid in full by the sixth day of the term (2nd day of each summer session), signed up for the Nelnet (FACTS) payment plan, or made other acceptable arrangements, a late fee will be assessed to the student’s account. In addition, withdrawal for non-payment notifications will be sent. Withdrawal for non-payment will include cancelling the student’s registration, preventing the student from attending or registering for classes, placing a hold on the student’s transcripts and diploma, removing the student from on-campus housing and/or meal plans, assigning the account to a collection agency and possible legal action to collect any balance due. Wayne State College will charge late fees and/or interest on delinquent accounts.
