Payment Plans

OPTION #1: Payment in full by August 1 (fall semester) and January 1 (spring semester)

OPTION #2: Automatic bank draft provides withdrawal from a checking account four times throughout the semester (refer to the dates below).

After all applicable financial assistance is applied to the students charges for the semester, (including a $25 fee for this program) the remaining balance is divided into four equal installments and deducted from the designated bank account according to the following schedule: 



August 2, 2013 (one-fourth of remaining balance)

January 3, 2014 (one-fourth of remaining balance)

September 2, 2013 (one-third of remaining balance)

February 3, 2014 (one-third of remaining balance)

October 2, 2013 (one-half of remaining balance)

March 3, 2014 (one-half of remaining balance)

November 4, 2013 (remaining balance)

April 3, 2014 (remaining balance)

Bank drafts returned for insufficient funds or closed accounts will cause the student account to be assessed a $10.00 fee.  Requests for alternative dates for drafting, if approved, will also be assessed a $10.00 fee. Late enrollment in the bank draft program (after the first draft date) will require the amount of missed drafts to be paid by cash, check, or credit card before the bank draft enrollment will be accepted by KWU.

Students who fail to pay any amounts when due are not eligible to re-enroll, or receive grades, transcripts or diplomas until the accounts have been settled or a release has been given by the Business Manager. The University reserves the right to charge a student for damages to University property as a result of carelessness.

Interest on delinquent payments will be assessed at the rate of 1% per month on the unpaid balance. Any and all collection effort expenses will be passed on to the delinquent student. The failure of the University to enforce these provisions at any one time or with respect to any one student shall not constitute a waiver of the right of the University to enforce it at any other time, at all times, or with respect to any other student.
