Payments and Payment Agreement Forms are due 14 days before the first day of classes. Any balance due after the due date may be assessed a late fee. All financial aid forms should be completed one month before the payment due date to ensure that all funds are received on time. A late fee may be assessed to those who have not completed the financial aid forms by this time.
Students may make cash or check payments on their accounts in person at the Cashier's Window. Personal checks may be mailed to the Office of Student Accounts and must include the student's ID number. If omitted, the number may be written on the check by College staff. Checks should be made payable to Roberts Wesleyan College.
Payments may also be made by Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) or credit card (MasterCard, Discover, or American Express) through our online payment center (www.afford.com\rwc). Please be advised that a convenience fee of approximately 3% will be charged on all credit card transactions. There is no additional charge for EFT payments made from a checking or savings account.
Students who have been awarded scholarships, loans, or other grants from agencies outside the College, who do not have the funds in hand by the first day of each new semester, must present a voucher of confirmation from the agency from whom payment will be received. In the absence of such vouchers, payments will be expected from the students while they await the agency payment. If no payment is made to cover the awarded scholarships, loans, or grants, a late fee will be assessed.
If a balance is still owed on a previous semester when registering for the next semester, the student’s registration may be held or voided until payment is received.
All student aid is awarded on an annual basis. However, credit on the student’s account is usually applied 50% to fall semester and 50% to spring semester. If financial arrangements are not made by the student, the student’s registration may be cancelled.
Canadian students need to make payment in U.S. funds.
Optional Payment Plans
Parents frequently inquire about the availability of payment plans used to cover all or part of the annual cost of college over an extended period of time. Roberts Wesleyan College offers a commercial payment plan through Tuition Management Systems (TMS). Payments can be spread over eight to twelve months for a nominal charge of $50 - $60. More information about all available plans can be obtained from the Office of Student Accounts.
