Payments

Billing System

The Billing and Receivables Office compiles the latest information from University offices (i.e. Financial Aid, Registrar's, and University Housing and Dining) and prepares the monthly billing statement. Billing statements are sent electronically to the student's wiu.edu e-mail address as well as any parent/guest e-mail on file when the bill is ready to view on STARS. The e-mail will include the account balance and the due date.

Payment Due Dates

Payment is due on the 28th of each month. Tuition and fees for the fall term are billed in August, charges for the spring term are billed in January, and charges for the summer term are billed in June.

Open Payment Policy:

Students are responsible for paying their account balances within the semester incurred. These charges, in accordance with Western Illinois University Policy, apply to all students billed through the Billing and Receivables office, and are subject to a finance charge of 1% on the unpaid account balance after the 28th of each month.

Failure to view a bill will not excuse finance charge assessment or payment of the account. It is the student's responsibility to update their STARS account of address or e-mail corrections. A financial hold will be placed on any delinquent student account that will prevent registration, release of transcripts, and release of diploma.

Payment Methods

ACH:

Make payments directly from your bank account via STARS Payment Online.

Automated Payment Plan:

An automated payment plan is available to divide your cost of attendance into several monthly payments. Payments are deducted monthly on the 5th of the month from the designated bank account. There is not a finance charge assessed on the contracted amount; however, there is a $2.00 per month transaction fee to cover processing. Additional charges incurred above the contracted amount will be billed and subject to a 1% finance charge if not paid by the 28th of each month.

A contract must be completed on STARS by a student or individuals with parent and guest access. Any changes to a completed agreement must be done by the student or guest that originated the contract. Only one contract per semester may be completed for each student.

International Wire Transfer

Western Illinois University has partnered with peerTransfer to streamline the tuition payment process for our international students. peerTransfer allows you to pay from any country and any bank. They also offer excellent foreign exchange rates, allowing you to pay in your home currency (in most cases) and save a significant amount of money compared to traditional banks. You will be able to track the progress of your payment throughout the transfer process via a student dashboard, and you will be notified via email when your payment is received by Western Illinois University.
