What payment methods can I use when enrolling in my payment plan?

You can sign up for a payment plan and pay via ACH (direct debit from your bank account), credit or debit card. You can make a one-time payment as well using the same payment methods.

What fees are charged for enrolling in a payment plan?

Enrollment fee: $25
Late fee: $25

Does Weatherford College charge a credit card service fee if I use my credit card to enroll in a payment plan?

No.

Can I pay by cash if I signed up for a payment plan?

Paying online is highly recommended. You can pay with cash in the Business Office, but you must pay the whole amount of the installment.

Can I still enroll in a plan if I have financial aid? How does it affect my plan?

At enrollment, the payment plan is calculated on the balance owed after all payments and/or financial aid credit are deducted from the amount due. Financial aid awarded after the initiation of the plan reduces all installments equally.

When will my payment post to my student account?

Your payments are posted to your student account immediately.

Why do I see an amount due for an installment I already paid?

Installments reopen if their due dates have not passed and you have new charges on your student account.

The plan is set up to pay your charges for a number of items, such as tuition, fees, (and books, if you have financial aid). Any time you have new charges for those items, your plan installment amounts will increase. Any time you have payments or other new credits toward those items, your installment amounts will decrease. Balances on accounts recalculate overnight. If you don’t see changes right away, check your account again in 24 hours. Monthly installment amounts will not increase 14 days prior to a payment due date if any new charges are added to your account. Your new payment amount will take effect on the following month’s payment.

Please note that the payment plan prevents you from making another payment on the same day to prevent overpayment or double payment.

An email notification is sent following each recalculation reflecting the new payment amount. You will also receive a reminder email that your monthly installment is due 3 days prior to the installment due date.

Can my family or other authorized user have access to my student account?

Students may setup authorized users to view their billing information and/or their student bill on his or her behalf. Please note, in accordance with FERPA, this does not allow the authorized user to view the student’s academic records, course schedule, or other personal information. Authorized users may view student account activity, make payments, and set up payment plans.

Students cannot make payments toward a plan set up by an authorized user. You can see it, but the authorized user must make the payments.

Can my parents both pay on one payment plan?

The student may sign up for the plan themselves and then give access to each parent as an authorized user. Each parent will pay his or her personal agreed upon portion of the plan each month.

What if I no longer want to attend classes after registration?

You have to formally withdraw from classes. Contact the Business Office at 817-598-6265 to ensure that you are no longer enrolled and that you are removed from your payment plan. Please do not assume your registration and/or payment plan will automatically be dropped/cancelled for non-payment.

Who do I call with payment plan questions?

You may call support at 833-269-3675. Our dedicated Tuition Payment Plan support representatives will be able to answer questions related to your account balance, plan details, installment payment status, and plan agreement.

The Business Office is located on the lower floor of the I.B. Hand building.
