What is a student account?
Each student that attends WPI will have a financial account with the Bursar's Office. This account will include charges/payments for tuition and fees, room and board, and other charges, as applicable. Semester charges are posted to your account in Workday where you have the option to print your own statement.
Will I receive a bill?
WPI does not send paper or email electronic bills. Semester charges are posted to your student account where you have the option to generate your own statement. You will be sent an email notification via Workday when charges have posted. In Workday, you can opt to include Friends and Family to view your account activity, receive proactive email notifications, generate a statement and/or make a payment on your behalf.
What happens if I do not pay on time?
Students that do not pay semester charges by the due date will be charged a late payment fee. Late fees of up to $250.00 may be applied in a term. In addition, a financial hold, which prevents any changes to your registration schedule and restricts transcripts, will be applied to your account. To resolve this hold, you must pay your account balance in full.
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 2.85% service charge based on the transaction amount.
What is eCheck or ACH payment?
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 transaction 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. To resolve this hold, payment for full balance must be made.
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 email, 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.
