The Wilmington University payment plan allows students to pay tuition in monthly installments throughout the semester.

If you are on the payment plan, you are responsible for making payments on or by the due date, regardless of whether or not your financial aid has been processed.

Students can view their financial aid offer on WebCampus under “My Financial Aid” if all required documentation has been completed and submitted. Loan disbursements require a master promissory note and entrance counseling. Funds are disbursed after the drop/add date, dependent on which block the student is enrolled. For example: If a student is only enrolled in block two courses, funds will not disburse until after the block two drop/add date.

NOTE: G.I. Bill recipients not receiving 100% coverage of tuition/fees are responsible for any balance due.

The Semester Payment Plan fee is $20.00, which is charged if tuition and/or applicable fees are not paid in full at time of registration. A late payment charge will be added monthly if payment is not made on the due date. Students are liable for all collection charges. The University reserves the right to change terms, charges, or conditions at any time.

The payment plan is described below:

If the student has registered prior to the first billing date of each semester, the total term balance is divided into (4) monthly payments. Each subsequent billing is the term balance divided by the number of remaining billing months in the semester. Please refer to the Billing Due Dates. A billing alert is sent to the student's wildcats email on the first of the month in each billing period. Wilmington University does not mail monthly account statements.

Billing Dates

To avoid late payment fees, payment must be received each month on or before the billing due date.

Payments may be made on WebCampus, in person, at your home site or through the mail by check or money order. VISA, MasterCard, Discover Card or AMEX payments may be made by phone.

The University reserves the right to withhold transcript or diploma from any student who has outstanding financial obligations.

Payment Plan Question & Answer

What if I have Financial Aid?

Financial aid is deducted from your monthly payment. If your financial aid is greater than your monthly payment, the balance of your aid is applied to the next bill.

What happens if I do not pay on time?

  1. The grace period for a payment is 10 days after the due date.
  2. A late fee of $30 is charged for balances not paid by the end of the grace period.
  3. If you miss two consecutive payments, your account is in default. You may be dropped from any courses for which you have registered that have not begun meeting (Block II or modulars). The remaining balance of your account is due immediately and you may lose payment plan privileges.
  4. You will not be permitted to register if your account is not current.
  5. If your account is submitted to a collection agency, you are responsible for any and all collection costs, and you will be unable to use the payment plan in the future.

What happens if my check is returned?

You will be charged a $35 returned-check fee.

How can I avoid paying for a course I've decided not to take?

You must drop the course from your schedule before the end of the drop/add period for that semester or block. If you do not drop the course by the drop/add deadline, you must pay for the course in full.
