Yes, WMU has a payment plan that features installment payments. The University payment plan allows you to spread the balance due over a certain number of installments. You can enroll in the plan to have the installments charged automatically to your checking or savings account, or installments must be made online by the due date if using a credit card. If you use a credit card, a convenience fee of 2.75% will be charged for each payment.
You can sign up for the payment plan at http://gowmu.wmich.edu. Select the Payment and Account Information link, then the Payment Plan tab. The authorized users can sign up for the payment plan at https://wapps.wmich.edu/authuser.
To sign up for the payment plan you must have a zero balance on prior semester charges. The charges you wish to use to enroll in the payment plan must be more than $500.00 and cannot include Campus Apartment rent or Children's Place charges.
A payment plan enrollment fee of $30.00 is due when you sign up for the payment plan. Effective Fall 2013, the enrollment fee will be $35.00. You can pay by electronic checking or savings, or a credit or debit card. All credit and debit card transactions are subject to the convenience fee of 2.75% or $3, whichever is larger. The enrollment plan fee will be processed immediately when signing up. The payment plan enrollment fee is non-refundable.
If you want to use the payment plan for another semester you must sign up again. The $30.00 payment plan fee is charged for each semester that you use the program. Effective Fall 2013, the enrollment fee will be $35.00.
No, the enrollment fee is only charged when you enroll for the payment plan.
The convenience fee of 2.75% of the transaction will be charged anytime you use a debit or credit card for a payment installment.
When you enroll for a payment plan your balance is divided into equal installment payments based on the date that you sign up for the payment plan. The sooner you enroll in the payment plan the more installments there may be available based on the term. Your balance will be divided into the number of installments available. The installments will be processed automatically on the due date of the plan for checking or savings account plans or, if using a debit or credit card, the user must make the payment on line and agree to the 2.75% convenience fee.
If you enrolled in a payment plan before your financial aid is applied to your student account, your financial aid will be applied to the next scheduled installment(s). Depending on the amount of financial aid and your student account balance, it may cover more than one of the scheduled installments. If you only want the University Payment Plan to cover the balance after financial aid, you will need to wait to enroll in a payment plan after the financial aid has applied to your student account. Please check your student account on the web to view payment information.
Based on the date that you enroll in the payment plan program you will make between 2 and 6 payments. The number of installments and the amount of each payment cannot be manually changed. However, any additional payments or charges that are added to your account will cause your monthly payments to be recalculated. You may make additional payment at any time.
When you enroll for the payment plan, you can see the number of installments, the amount of each installment payment, and the due dates. If you add charges or make payment to your student account, the amount of your installment payment will be adjusted accordingly.
You will have five days to pay your installment. If the payment is not received within the five days you will be assessed a late fee of 1.5% and removed from the payment plan.
When a mailed payment (only checks are accepted by mail) is received, it will reduce any future installment payments.
