How to Make a Payment

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 12th day of each semester (summer term due dates are the second day of the session). Any charges to the student’s account after the 12th day of classes (after the second day of the summer session) are due immediately. This includes charges due to dropping or adding a course, fines or other fees or charges.

You can make payments by one of the following ways:

For College Savings/529 Plan payments:
State-approved 529 plan payments can be made directly in WildcatsOnline. Otherwise, disbursements from a 529 Plan arrive in the form as checks that are mailed to Wayne State College. These payments can take 10 or more business days to reach us, as they require additional time for processing and delivery. You should contact your plan administrator to begin the withdrawal process at 2-4 weeks before the payment deadline to ensure the funds are received by the deadline dates. Each payment should include the student’s name and 8-digit student ID number.
