The Office of Student Accounts & Cashiering (Student Accounts) maintains students’ accounts. All fees on the account are mandatory and are a part of the cost of attendance. The only fee that can be waived is the insurance fee.
WSSU utilizes E-Billing. Once bills are generated, a notification will be sent via email that the bill is available online through TouchNet. From the WSSU homepage, click on Current Students, Select the tab Campus Resources, Select Student Accounts. Under Featured Links, Select Student Account Suite ACCESS (This is the TouchNET site). From here you can also set up direct deposit and make credit card payments.
Insurance is a mandatory fee which is charged to all students registered for six hours or more, unless you are a Distance Learner. If you have medical insurance the fee can be waived.
The insurance is waived by accessing the Student Blue website. Once you provide your insurance information, the provider will determine whether or not you qualify for the waiver.
There is a deadline for waiving the insurance. If the deadline is missed, the fee will have to be paid.
The University accepts cash, cashier’s checks, money orders, MasterCard and Visa as forms of payment.
Payment can be mailed to the Student Accounts Office. Payment can also be made online with a credit card (Visa or MasterCard).
No. There is an ATM located on the first floor of the Thompson Center.
Financial Aid is applied directly to the student’s account to pay tuition, required fees, room and board (meals). Any over-payment is refunded to the student. Work Study cannot be used to guarantee payment. Parent Plus loans can be used if they have been approved.
You can use the University’s approved payment plan or pay the difference through one of the other listed forms of payment.
Yes, we accept scholarships from all sources. They can be used to pay the bill or reduce the balance due. The Financial aid office should be given a copy of all scholarship letters.
- General scholarships are those awarded from religious, fraternal or civic organizations.
- Third party scholarships are those which the University has to bill for. The authorizations for billing must be turned into Student Accounts and a copy must also be provided to financial aid.
Once your bill is paid in full from any source and the payment results in an over-payment, then you are due a refund.
The first refunds will be available eleven days after the first day of class. Additional refunds will be available twice a month.
You qualify for book vouchers if you have a pending credit from Financial Aid after the mandatory charges have been accounted for.
Validation is completion of enrollment into the University. This is achieved by paying the amount due on your student account.
All students who register for classes must complete their enrollment into the University by validating their schedules. Students who have financial aid to cover all charges can validate online. All others must contact Student Accounts to make sure the bill has been satisfied and validation is complete.
Purge means that your classes have been deleted from the system because they were not validated (not paid). If classes are purged you need to register again and contact Student Accounts if you are on the payment plan or pay the amount due.
Financial credit will not be given for dropped classes after the Add period is over. The Add period ends two weeks after the first day of general registration.
Financial credit is issued on a prorated basis for withdrawal up to the eighth week of classes. Withdrawal impacts Financial Aid. To retain the Financial Aid, you must complete at least 60% of the semester, otherwise funds will be returned and you may owe the University.
