Payment Plan

Western’s Payment Plan is offered quarterly to students with a current balance. The Payment Plan enrollment period typically opens up a week before classes start. See the timeline below for dates pertaining to the next payment plan enrollment.  Students enroll by selecting the option in their Western Account Online.  After enrolling, students will make two or three installments (depending on their time of enrollment) toward their current quarter's tuition, fees, housing and meal plan charges.  Students with past due balances are ineligible to enroll in this plan. If you have any questions about payment plans please email us at or call us at 360-650-2865.
