Financial Assistance, Fees, and Tuition

Fees and Tuition

Paying Fees

The procedures for paying fees depend on which registration period is used. Students will find fee payment deadlines for each registration period in the university calendar by visiting the bursar Web site at http://www.wright.edu/bursar/. Students who register early but do not submit their payment by the required due date will have their registration canceled in order to make classroom space available to other students. Students who register during open registration must pay all fees and charges by the published fee payment deadline. Their registration will not be canceled. Late fees of up to $250 may be assessed for late registration or late payment. See the Registrar's Web site at http://www.wright.edu/registrar/ or the quarterly class schedule for refund and drop/withdrawal dates. Wright State University reserves the right to make policy and fee changes at any time during the year.

Students are encouraged to pay fees through Raider Online eXpress (ROX) at http://rox.wright.edu. By visiting this Web site, students can apply their financial aid to account charges and pay any remaining balance with an electronic check or credit card. The university accepts Discover, VISA, and MasterCard, and the student must either be the cardholder or have the cardholder's authorization. Students can also pay by check or money order made payable to Wright State University and sent to the attention of the Bursar. The check should be written for the exact amount due. Incorrect checks will be returned to the sender, and registration will proceed on schedule only if a replacement check for the correct amount is received by the published due date. The university will not accept postdated checks. There is a $25 charge for each check returned to the university.

Students have the option of using the Student Installment Payment Plan (SIPP) to spread their quarterly fees for tuition, insurance, and university housing (if applicable) over approximately three months. The plan is offered as an alternative to the single payment for fees that is normally due at the beginning of fall, winter, spring, and summer quarters. For a $30 nonrefundable fee, students pay one-third of the fees by the published fee payment deadline. The balance is divided into two installments, which are payable at the established dates about 30 days apart. There is a $35 penalty for each payment that is received after the established due date. Further information about SIPP is available at the Office of the Bursar and at . Students may enroll and pay SIPP installment payments through Raider Online eXpress at http://rox.wright.edu. Application forms for SIPP are also provided as part of the registration invoice.

Payment of fees can be mailed to the attention of the Bursar in the payment envelopes provided with the billing. Payments can also be made at the Fee Payment and Deposit windows in E236 Student Union or placed in the Raider Express drop box located in the hall adjacent to the windows of the Bursar's office. Mailed payments must be received by the fee payment deadline in order to prevent the cancellation of registration. Mailed payments received after the payment deadline will be returned.

Students whose fees are paid entirely by grants, scholarships, or other sponsors must still notify the Office of the Bursar each quarter. This notification is accomplished by returning the top portion of the billing statement by the established fee payment deadline to indicate their intention to attend Wright State University. Students whose fees are paid entirely by grants, scholarships, and loans may also confirm registration and payment by visiting Raider Online eXpress at http://rox.wright.edu.

Financial accounts may be audited at any time. If an error is identified, a bill or refund will be issued. The university will issue a refund within 30 days or apply the credit to the account. If students do not make acceptable arrangements to pay any amount due within 30 days, their current quarter's registration may be canceled. Students are responsible for all charges assessed to their account. All accounts that are referred to collections are subject to reasonable collections cost, including attorney fees and other charges necessary for the collection of any amount not paid when due.
