Charges are billed each semester. For those who wish to spread out their payments, a monthly payment plan is available. In either case, payment must be made on the first day of class to avoid late fees or being removed from your courses for non-payment.
Students can check the balance owed via their Western online account by clicking on MyWestern.
A Late Payment Fee of $100 will be applied to all accounts that are not set up on a payment plan and are delinquent for any subsequent late payment. Students who have not paid or made arrangements with Student Financial Services will be removed from registered courses, and lose access to MyWestern accounts, on-campus computers, residence halls and meal plans.
We encourage students to pay in advance by credit card or electronic check. The College accepts Visa, MasterCard and Discover.
By law, only enrolled students have access to their Western accounts. If you would like to grant account access to a third-party such as your parents, you can do so online.
To make a third-party payment, access the cashnet/westernpay site.
Checks should be made payable to Western State Colorado University and must include the student's ID number. When mailing a check, please note it must be received by the first day of classes to avoid additional penalties.
The "W-Pay" Payment Plan provides an interest-free option by splitting charges into four equal payments. Full terms and conditions are available upon enrollment. Enrollment in our "W-Pay" payment plan costs $40 each semester and is only available through a student's online account.
Late enrollment in a plan will result in the semester's account balance being split into three equal payments.
Students who receive financial aid over the amount of their direct costs will receive a refund, deposited directly into the student's bank account. Students must be enrolled in E-Refund.
