Paying Your Bills - Payment Policy
Students become obligated and agree to pay all academic charges when they register for each term. Charges including tuition, fees, room, meal plans, and other fees that may be assessed are due on or before the sixth day of the term (2nd day of each summer session). Miscellaneous charges such as library and parking fines are due when assessed. Charges are subject to refund only to the extent allowed under Wayne State College’s Tuition Refund Policy. Wayne State College requires all students to sign a payment agreement. The terms of this agreement remain in effect as long as the student is enrolled, whether it is continuously or periodically, full time, or part time. Students are responsible for payment of all costs incurred even if this form is not endorsed by the student.
BILLING STATEMENTS WILL NOT BE MAILED. It is the student’s responsibility to check their account balance online and make payment by the published payment deadline. Wayne State College Business Services will send notifications to student’s WSC e-mail account. Itemization of charges and credits can be found on WildcatsOnline via Campus FinancesàAccount InquiryàActivity. A printer friendly invoice will be processed monthly giving a summarization of charges and credits and is available on WildcatsOnline via Campus FinancesàAccount InquiryàCharges DueàInvoices Due. Except as otherwise agreed under applicable payment plans, payment is due on or before the 6th day of the term (2nd day of each summer session). With the exception of those students on a Nelnet (FACTS) payment plan or third party billing, a late payment fee of 2% (up to $100) will be applied to all accounts not paid in full by the due date.
STUDENTS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR PAYMENT WHETHER OR NOT THEY ACCESS THEIR ACCOUNT INFORMATION ON WildcatsOnline. IF A PAPER BILL IS REQUIRED IT MAY BE PRINTED FROM WildcatsOnline.
Students may pay in installments by signing up for the various options under the Nelnet (FACTS) payment plan. If the Nelnet (FACTS) payment plan is terminated for any reason, the account balance is due Wayne State College immediately. To sign-up for the payment plan go to: ecampus.wsc.eduàOnline Resourcesàe-Cashier.
Third Party Billing
Wayne State College also accepts payments from outside sources that have formally agreed to pay tuition and fees for an eligible student. These organizations include but are not limited to the Veterans Administration, Vocational Rehabilitation, National Guard, and Americorp. Contact Business Services for more information.
Financial Aid and Third Party Billing
EACH STUDENT REMAINS RESPONSIBLE FOR PAYMENT OF ALL CHARGES BY THE SPECIFIED DUE DATE IF THE FINANCIAL AID AND/OR THIRD PARTY PROCESS HAS NOT BEEN COMPLETED. Wayne State College may assist students in completing the required documents, but the student is ultimately responsible to ensure that all documentation, requirements, and deadlines are met.
If a student has not paid in full by the due date, signed up for the Nelnet (FACTS) payment plan, or made other acceptable arrangements a late payment fee of 2% (up to $100) will be assessed to the student’s account. In addition, an enrollment cancellation notice will be sent. The student’s enrollment cancellation 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 of 2% of the unpaid balance on delinquent accounts.
Educational benefits are exempt from discharge under bankruptcy unless "undue hardship" as established under The Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act of 2005 can be proven. In other words, in most cases tuition and institutional receivables will not be dischargeable by bankruptcy.
ALL COMMUNICATION WILL BE THROUGH THE STUDENT’S WSC E-MAIL ACCOUNT.
