Payment Options

WSU accepts a variety of payment options for tuition and fees.

When financial aid is disbursed, these funds are automatically applied to your student account. Any financial aid overage will be direct deposited to the bank account requested by the student.

If you have a balance remaining after financial aid, you can choose one of these methods to make a payment.

Here's how it works:

  • Payments are processed the 5th of each month. The total number of payment installments depends on when you enroll in the plan.
  • Cost to participate is a $30 enrollment fee per term. If you choose to pay with a credit card, there is an additional service fee.
