Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS MY STUDENT ACCOUNT BALANCE?
You can obtain your balance by logging into your MyWestern account, click on Student Finance, then select the semester you want to view.
WHEN ARE TUITION AND FEES DUE?
Tuition and fees are due before the start of classes, or on the date of enrollment. If you cannot pay your balance in full, Western offers flexible, safe payment plan options.
CAN I SET UP A PAYMENT PLAN FOR A CURRENT OR PAST SEMESTER?
Western offers secure payment plan options through Herring Bank.
For a current semester, you can sign up for a payment plan through MyWestern, then click on Student Finance. For a past semester balance, payment plan options are not available. You may make payments to Western by phone or mail. See Payment Options for more information on how to make a payment.
I DROPPED MY CLASS, HOW DO I GET MY REFUND?
If you dropped within the refund period, you will receive your refund either by the refund preference you chose on your Direct Deposit Designation through MyWestern, or back to the debit/credit card with which you paid. If you dropped outside of the refund period, receiving a “W” in the class, you will not receive a refund and still owe for those classes. See Enrollment Changes for more information.
WHERE DO I FIND THE DROP DATE TO RECEIVE A REFUND?
For specific dates to receive a refund, please refer to the Academic & Event Calendar.
