Issues or questions about making your full payment on time?

If full payment cannot be made by the first due date, the student should enroll in the BW monthly payment plan or make alternate arrangements. The cashier’s office can assist with these arrangements to ensure that the billing account will be paid in full by the deadline.

A monthly finance charge will be added to any account balance remaining after the first week of classes unless enrolled in the formal BW monthly payment plan. If there is a balance due, a 5% APR finance charge (0.417% per month) will be added until the amount decreases to zero or below as a result of additional credit/payments received.
