Information for high school CEP students

An affordable option to get a head start on your college education

At one-half the regular tuition rate Concurrent Enrollment Program (CEP) classes are a great way to get a head start on your college education. Washburn makes the option even more affordable by offering a 3-payment plan and many convenient ways to pay either in person, by mail or online.

To view electronic bills or make payment online, students and authorized users must first activate the student's MyWashburn account before accessing WU-View, the online payment system.

While we understand many parents take an active role in providing financial support for high school students participating in (CEP), a student must make the parent an authorized user via WU-View before our staff can speak with them about a particular student.

How to activate MyWashburn

In order to access WU-View, our online payment system, you must first activate your MyWashburn account. The process is as follows:

  • Have your Washburn ID Number (WIN) which is sent by mail, and the activation code (sent by email) ready. If you need the Washburn ID, please contact the Admissions Office at admissions@washburn.edu or call 785.670.1030. If you need the activation code, please contact the Student One Stop at sos@washburn.edu or call 785.670.2162.
  • Go to my.washburn.edu and click on the "Account Activation Form" link.
  • Enter your WIN and the last 4 digits of the activation code, answer a few questions, then set up a password and security questions.

Accessing WU-View

Students may access the online payment system WU-View by:

  • Signing into MyWashburn
  • Clicking on the Financial Services tab
  • Clicking on the blue WU-View button in the Student Account Information section

Students with activated accounts can also click on the "High School CEP Students" box below to be directed to the MyWashburn sign on page.  See information below regarding Authorized User access.

Authorized Users

While our staff will always be happy to explain university policies regarding student accounts, in order to speak with a parent about the account balance we must have the student's consent as required by FERPA.

For the Washburn University Business Office, the student's consent to release financial information is recorded when they register the parent as an authorized user in WU-View.

To set up a parent as an authorized user in WU-View click on "Authorized Users" and then "Add Authorized User," fill out the information and submit. The authorized user will then receive an email with login information.

Once the parent has been recorded as an authorized user, we are able to tell the parent any financial information that they would like to know. In addition, authorized users receive email notification when eBills are generated and have the ability to set up a payment plan and/or make payments on behalf of the student. Authorized users can access WU-View by clicking on the "Authorized User Access" box above.

Although it is a poor idea for security reasons, students will sometimes give their personal login information to a parent so that s/he can view student information. Please know that this does not make the parent an authorized user. Likewise, a student may give a parent verbal permission to speak with our office, but this also does not make the parent an authorized user. Only parents who are recorded in WU-View are authorized users, and our staff can only speak with authorized users about a particular student.

The cost per credit hour for high school students enrolled in courses through the Concurrent Enrollment Program is one-half the cost per credit hour (rounded up to nearest dollar) of our traditional, undergraduate tuition for the semester. For business courses, the cost per credit hour is one-half the cost of our traditional, undergraduate business tuition for the semester.

Enrollment in a CEP course represents a financial obligation that can only be reversed by withdrawing during the refund period. The 100% refund period for CEP courses ends on the published 100% refund date for undergraduate students. After that date, there is 0% refund for withdrawal from CEP courses. 

All CEP students must have any prior semester balance paid in full before enrollment in a new semester will be allowed.

Our office will send out a single paper bill in the Fall and Spring terms to all high school students with a balance (any Summer CEP enrollments are sent eBills on the same schedule as Washburn students). These bills serve as a reminder to students that they have a financial obligation to the University.  In an attempt to capture all enrolled CEP students, we typically wait until all or nearly all of the enrollments are processed before sending out the paper bill.  Because of this, the paper bills may not arrive in student mailboxes until shortly before the payment deadline.  We ask students to watch their balances online and be aware of the deadlines for payment, understanding that payment can be made after enrollment is complete and does not have to wait until a paper bill is received.

Students and authorized users are encouraged to access information concerning the student account on the Financial Services tab of MyWashburn. Electronic bills (eBills) are generated periodically (typically near the end of each month) and are available for viewing and/or printing in WU-View. When an eBill is generated, an email notification is sent to the student's Washburn email account as well as to recorded email addresses for authorized users. Our office is happy to speak with students and authorized users concerning any charge that appears on an eBill, although certain questions may need to be directed to the office where the charge originates.

We offer a 3-payment plan for high school students or parents unable to pay the Concurrent Enrollment Program tuition in full prior to the payment deadline.

Enrollment in the plan ends on the plan's published enrollment deadline for the term (see the important dates drop down box on the Business Office home page), but our office can administratively enroll a student in the plan after the plan enrollment closes. The setup fee for the plan is $20 and becomes part of the total balance due.

Installment dates are listed when signing up for the plan, but are normally around the beginning of October, November, and December for the Fall term and March, April, and May for the Spring term. Automatic payments can be scheduled at the time of enrollment in the plan.

For students with balances that are not covered by a payment plan, a $25 late fee will be assessed after the payment deadline.

Payments on student accounts may be made in person in Morgan 103-O by cash, check, money order or PIN-based debit card; by mail with check or money order; or online by check, signature debit card, or credit card (a convenience fee for credit card payments will be charged by the processor).

Because we encourage students/parents to pay online, we do not accept credit card payments over the phone. Please contact our office for assistance with any of these payments.

Authorized users may set up a payment plan on behalf of the student. Authorized users can set up scheduled payments to have the installments automatically paid from a bank account, by credit card, or by signature debit card.

Regardless of whether or not the student is enrolled in a payment plan, high school students with a balance due will have a hold in place blocking release of transcripts or future enrollment until the balance is paid in full. All CEP students must have any prior semester balance paid in full before enrollment in a new semester is allowed.
