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 to assistance and to enroll via telephone. A $110 application fee allows you to pay your bill over a 12 month period, typically running from June - May; each payment is due the 1st of each month. 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 $85.00. 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. Payments are due the 1st of each month.
Please Note: WPI reserves the right to adjust a budget on behalf of a family, or cancel a payment plan if the plan becomes delinquent. WPI will automatically decrease a budget to reflect the accurate balance due on a student account. Additionally, if the account becomes delinquent any balance due must be made directly to WPI and the account may be placed on hold until the account has been cleared.
Important: NO refunds are issued on a student account with a TMS Budget, WPI will decrease the budget accordingly. In the event that all TMS payments have been received by WPI and a credit balance is available due to a late disbursement of Financial Aid, a refund may be issued. TMS payments require a 10 business day waiting period before any refund is issued. WPI also reserves the right to hold any TMS credit balance for future terms.
