  • If you expect to receive financial aid, check to be sure it has been released to your account by the payment deadline.
  • If your aid is delayed because your are a first-time freshman, first-time borrower and it will pay your balance in full when it is released 30 days into the term, you do not need to set up a payment plan as long as your account shows your aid is memoed and waiting to disburse.
  • If your aid is split into two disbursements because you are considered a single-term student for financial aid purposes and it will cover your balance in full when it is released at the mid-point of the term, you do not need to set up a payment plan as long as your account shows your aid is memoed and waiting to disburse.
  • If your aid is delayed because your FAFSA was not submitted on time, or that other requirements were not completed on time, you are still obligated to meet the payment deadline or enroll in a payment plan.
  • If your aid is late for another reason beyond your control, the late charge will be waived if you pay the balance not covered by the financial aid by the payment deadline.
  • Payment for classes enrolled in after the payment deadline is due upon enrollment.
  • Information for High School CEP Students is available here
  • The Business Office will place a “hold” on your account. This prevents the release of your transcript or diploma and may prevent continued or future enrollment.
  • The “hold” is not removed until your bill has been paid in full.
  • A late fee may be charged. The amount of that fee is determined by the number of credit hours enrolled for Washburn students and is a flat $50 for Washburn Tech students. See the table below for details.

  • If you believe you should not be charged a late fee, you can submit a Late Fee Waiver request. To qualify for a late fee waiver, you must demonstrate that the failure to settle the account balance in a timely manner was due to an error on the part of Washburn University. Late fee waiver requests must be submitted no later than 30 days after the end of the term in which the late fee was applied. When submitting the waiver request via email, please send it to from your Washburn email account.
