Payment Plan

Western’s Payment Plan is offered quarterly to students with a current balance.  The Payment Plan enrollment period opens up a week before classes start, and remains open for two weeks.  Students enroll by selecting the option in their Western Account Online.  After enrolling, students will make three installments (or two during Summer Quarter) toward their current quarter's tuition, fees, housing and meal plan charges.  Students with past due balances are ineligible to enroll in this plan. Follow us on Twitter to get the most recent updates regarding your Western Account Online.
