What is a student account?
Each student that attends WPI will have a financial account with the Bursar's Office. This student account will include charges/payments for tuition and fees, room and board, and other charges, as applicable. All of the charges will be billed using our eBill process through Workday.
What is e-Billing?
eBilling is a convenient and reliable alternative to paper bills. You will be sent an email notification to your Wrokday when an eBill is available for viewing. You also have the ability to give access to Friends and Family to view your eBills and/or make ePayments.
Can I receive a paper bill instead of the e-Bill?
All enrolled students will receive an eBill. If you would like a paper copy of your bill, you can log into Workday and print your eBill.
What happens if I do not pay on time?
Students that do not pay the eBill by the due date will be charged a late payment fee. Late fees of up to $250.00 may be applied in a term.
What forms of payment are accepted?
WPI accepts eCheck through Workday or credit card payment (MasterCard, Visa, Discover, American Express) by logging into Nelnet. There is no fee to make payment using eCheck. Credit card payments are assessed a 2.75% service charge based on the transaction amount.
What is eCheck?
WPI allows students and Friends and Family to make secure online payment with an eCheck. There is no service charge for making a payment with eCheck. Payments made by eCheck will create an ACH transactions to your checking or savings account.
If my bill shows a zero ($0.00) amount due, do I need to do anything?
If your amount due is ($0.00), you have either a zero or a credit balance. You do not need to make payment.
What is a Financial Hold?
A financial hold will be placed on your university transcript and registration privileges if you have an unpaid balance on your student account.
Does WPI offer any type of payment plan?
Yes, Nelnet offers a Monthly Payment Plan that allows the student or parent to make monthly payments.
I didn’t know I had a balance and I did not receive an e-mail, why am I still assessed a late payment fee?
It is the student’s responsibility to go to their Workday account. We recommend checking your account often as changes may occur.
