Electronic Payment Options

Electronic payments can be be made through the following secure systems:

Students: Log into Banner Self Service
Parents/Other Authorized Users: Log into the eBill System

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 epayments. In the future, ebills will be sent to the student and the authorized user.

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.
