Employer Deferred Payment Plan

Western Michigan University students who participate in a tuition reimbursement program through their employer, may also qualify for the employer deferred payment plan at Western Michigan University. If your employer bases their payment portion upon class completion and/or your final grade, and you would like to defer your payment until the end of the semester, please review our policy and application.

If approved, payment for the employer portion may be deferred until 30 days after the end of the semester. At that time, the deferred amount will automatically withdraw from your checking/saving account, or be charged to your credit/debit card, as determined by you upon enrollment into the plan. A convenience fee of 2.75% or $3, whichever is larger, is assessed on each credit/debit card transaction. Any amount not covered by your employer is due at the beginning of the semester.

A $50 non-refundable enrollment fee is required every semester that you apply and are eligible to, and enroll in the plan. A $25 non-sufficient funds fees applies to all returned payments.

The University begins accepting applications three weeks before the start of each semester, until the third week of the semester. All paperwork must be dated within 30 days of the start of each semester.
