Electronic Payment Options
Electronic payments can be made through the following secure systems:
Students have the option to set up separate login accounts for other individuals, like parents or guardians. Once a student sets up an authorized user, they will have access to the eBill and will be able to make electronic payments. In the future, ebills will be sent to the student and the authorized user.
If you are not an authorized user you may make a payment using the Student ID and last name. Use the login link below the login box.
Once logged in, you may choose one of the following methods to make your electronic payment:
Make an electronic check payment via secure connection. Please be sure to use a checking account - debit cards attached to a checking account will not process. See instructions online to enter routing number and checking account number. IMPORTANT! If you do not have checks with your account, please contact your bank to obtain a letter identifying the correct ACH account information to use when making on line payments. A fee will be charged for any returned ACH payment. After three returned payments a Bank/Tellers check will be required and ACH will be deactivated.

Monthly Payment Plan -Tuition Management Systems (TMS)
To set up a monthly payment plan, enroll online at Tuition Management Systems (TMS) or call +1-888-216-4258 for someone to assist you. A $100 application fee allows you to pay your bill over a 12 month period, typically running from June - May. There are no other charges or interest, you only pay the application fee (TMS may charge a fee for a returned and/or late payment). You may also enroll for one semester (fall or spring) the enrollment fee is $80.00. Your TMS budget (when current) will show on your eBill and Student Account. All payments for the payment plan are made directly to TMS but will be applied to the student account and will update the remaining balance on your budget. WPI uses term budget amounts, not the full year. Please Note: WPI reserves the right to cancel a payment plan if the plan becomes delinquent. Any balance due must be made directly to WPI. Important: NO refunds are issued on a student account with a TMS Budget until all payments are received at WPI and if a credit balance is available. All Financial Aid is posted to the student account and may not be refunded in the event payments are pending for TMS.
