How to Avoid Late Fees

 Following registration, check your WWU Online Student Account via Web4U

  • Register by midnight, June 29, 2020.
  • For most short courses 3-5 weeks in length, register by the second class meeting.
  • Pay on time and pay immediately if you add a course late.
  • Pay by eCheck or credit card via Web4U for immediate application to your student account.
  • Allow 7-10 days for mail to reach WWU. Payments are credited when received, not when mailed.

Failure to Pay Tuition

Tuition and fees are due Tuesday, June 23.

If you fail to pay the full amount of tuition and fees by July 15 at 4:00 pm, you may be charged a late payment fee. Since the payment due date falls after the 100% refund period, you will still owe tuition and fees, even if you have decided not to be enrolled for the quarter.

If you decide not to attend Western after you register for classes, it is important that you formally withdraw from the University on Web4U or at the Registrar’s Office, Old Main 230, as soon as possible to avoid incurring charges. (See Late Payment Fee for additional information.)
