WPI Financial Agreement
Please be sure to read and understand the terms and conditions in the WPI Financial Agreement. You must accept and agree during the check in process for each semester of enrollment (Fall, Spring and Summer if registered).
Official WPI Email
In compliance with the WPI policy on email, correspondence from the Bursar's Office will be sent to the student's official university “email@example.com" email account or through Workday. Students are expected to check their email on a frequent and consistent basis in order to stay current with WPI-related communications.
On Demand Bills - WPI does not send paper or electronic bills
Students receive a communication to their WPI email and Workday notifications when their semester charges are available for viewing. If multiple notifications are received, it is important to check your student account, as something may have changed that needs your attention. From your financial student account in Workday, you can select to print a semester statement (On Demand Bill) at any time and as many times as you need for updates. Students may allow friends and family to view activity and remit payment for your student account.
Semester Due Dates
WPI notifies students when the fall and spring semester charges have posted to their student account. Fall charges are posted to the student’s Workday account in July and are due in August. Spring charges are posted in December and are due in January. WPI does not add due dates per term within the semester i.e., A, B, C, D. Any registration within the semester i.e., A, B, C, D, or late registration for course(s) after the due date is due right after you register.
Non-matriculated students (not enrolled in a WPI degree program) are required to pay right after you register. Additionally, no third party letter(s) of credit are accepted for non-matriculated students. Students must pay for the course(s) and be reimbursed. There are no payment plan options available for non-matriculated students.
For E-Term(Summer) if a WPI matriculated student registers prior to a week before the first day of class, the charge will post to the student account. E-Term typically has two due dates, an E1 due date and an E2 & projects due date. If a student registers after the due date, payment is due after you register.
Rent is due the first (1st) of the month for graduate students living on campus. Any rent payment not received is subject to a late fee and registration hold.
Any additional charge(s) to a student account incurred once the semester begins is becomes due immediately.
Please note, graduate students eligible for tuition reduction through discount/scholarship will receive only one discount/scholarship. The greatest tuition reduction available to them will be applied.
All payments for tuition must be received by the Bursar's Office by the tuition payment due date, or if registering late, right after you register. Payments received after that due date are considered late and are subject to late charges up to $250, as stated in the Financial Responsibility Agreement you acknowledged at the beginning of every semester before registering. Payments that are returned by a bank are considered late. Please check your student account frequently for any changes, as any additional charges are also due by the due date. To avoid a late payment fee, you must make payment and settle your account by the semester due date.
First Year Students only - You must make payment and settle your account before you are allowed to pick up your residence keys to move into your assigned residence.
Late fees of up to $250 will be assessed on unpaid balances and registration holds will be placed on accounts that are not paid by the semester due date. Late rent payments for graduate students are also subject to a registration hold and late fees. Rent is due the first (1st) of each month.
Registration holds are posted automatically through Workday after the due date. 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 outstanding. Some reasons a hold may be applied, but are not limited to, are payment plan delinquencies, financial aid changes that may create a balance, late registration for a course, or returned check payments.
Returned Payment Fees
All returned payments will be assessed a $30 returned payment fee. After two returned payments (ACH/Check) the student will be required to remit payment via Bank/Tellers check or credit card (fee applies).
Should an account be turned over to a collection agency or attorney due to a delinquent balance, the student will be responsible for all costs associated with the collection.
Credit Bureau Reporting
Delinquent accounts may be reported to national credit bureau reporting agencies.
Title IV Authorization
Title IV funds are federal student aid funds, such as Federal Direct Student Loans, Pell Grants, which are from federal student aid programs administered by the U.S. Department of Education. The U.S. Department of Education regulations only allow schools to use your Federal Student Aid to pay for current academic year institutional charges unless you have granted permission to apply these funds to non-institutional charges.
Rescind Federal Authorization
In compliance with the WPI Financial Agreement and Federal Title IV Authorization, a student can provide to the Bursar's Office written communication to rescind said agreement. Please include student ID and first/last name with this communication.
