Please be sure to read and understand the terms and conditions in the Financial Agreement above. You must accept and agree to this agreement during the check in process for each semester of enrollment (Fall, Spring and Summer if registered).
Electronic Billing - eBilling (WPI Only Sends Electronic Bills)
Students will receive a notification to their WPI email when their eBill is available for viewing and payment. If multiple emails are received it is important to check this new eBill statement as something may have changed on your student account. Please note that WPI only sends bills electronically, you may print your bill on the eBill site at anytime. Students may create an authorized user to view and receive the bill as well, please see the Payment Options page. Students and authorized users may also enter a mobile phone number to receive text messages for notifications as well (standard text messaging rates may apply).
Billing & Due Dates
WPI sends eBills twice a year, for the fall and spring semesters. Fall bills are emailed to the student’s WPI email address in July and are due in August. Spring bills are emailed in December and are due in January. WPI does not bill per term within the semester i.e., A, B, C, D. If you register within one week prior to the bill due date you are required to pay at the time you register or by the due date on any eBill statement you receive. Any registration within the semester i.e., A, B, C, D, or late registration for course(s) payment is due at the time of registration.
Non-matriculated students (not enrolled in a WPI degree program) are required to pay at the time of registration for all semesters. Failure to pay will result in the student being dropped from any course(s) within 48 hours. Additionally, no third party letter(s) of credit are accepted for non-matriculated students, the student must pay for the course(s) and be reimbursed. There is no payment plan available for non-matriculated students. Students that are administratively withdrawn due to failure to pay within the required time are subject to an Administrative Reinstatement Fee.
For E-Term(Summer) if a WPI matriculated student registers prior to a week before the first day of class they will receive an eBill. E-Term typically has two due dates, an E1 due date and an E2 & projects. If a student registers within one week before or after the start of the E-Term session, payment is due at the time of registration.
For Graduate Students living on campus you will not receive a bill for rent. Rent is due the first (1st) of the month. Any rent payment not received is subject to a hold being placed on the account and a late fee.
Tuition Payment Due Date
All payments for tuition must be received by the Bursar's Office by the tuition payment due date specified on the eBill each semester, or payment is due at the time of registration if registering late. Payments received after that due date are considered late and are subject to late charges. Payments that are returned by a bank are considered late as well. If your registration has changed after the eBill has been sent, you may not be sent a new eBill prior to the tuition payment deadline. Check Banner Self Service for the most current account balance. To avoid a late payment fee, you must pay the full tuition amount for your anticipated enrollment by the due date. Any additional enrollment in a class after the initial due date, payment is due at the time of registration.
Late fees of up to $250 will be assessed on balances and accounting holds will be placed on accounts that are not paid by the due date published on the eBill statement. Late rent payments for Graduate Students are subject to a hold and late fees, rent is due the first (1st) of each month, no eBill is sent.
A hold may be placed on a student account at the discretion of the Bursar's Office at any time in the event that a balance becomes due or is outstanding. Some reasons a hold may be applied, but not limited to are: TMS delinquency, Financial Aid changes, late registration for a course, pending scholarship or aid removed, account balance is short, returned check payments.
Returned Payment Policy & Fees
All returned payments will be assessed a fee. After two returned payments (ACH/Check) the student will be required to remit payment via Bank/Tellers check or credit card (fee applies).
The student is responsible for all costs associated with the collection of delinquent balances should their account be turned over to a collection agency or attorney.
Credit Bureau Reporting
Delinquent accounts may be reported to national credit bureau reporting agencies.
In compliance with the WPI policy on email, correspondence from the Bursar's Office will be sent to the student's official university “firstname.lastname@example.org" email account. Students are expected to check their email on a frequent and consistent basis in order to stay current with WPI-related communications.
