Bursar & Paying Fees


The Office of the Bursar has responsibility for receipting all student and other university monies, including the administration and collection of institutional and federal loan programs. In addition, treasury services, tax compliance, and auxiliary services (vending and Wright1 card) also report to this department.

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 Office of the Bursar website at http://www.wright.edu/bursar/. Students who register during the early registration period 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 the open registration period must pay their fees by the published fee payment deadline. Their registration will not be canceled for non-payment.  Failure to make a payment or a late payment will result in a $50 late fee.  Late pay fees are assessed 3 times during a quarter. 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 WINGS Express via WINGS at http://wings.wright.edu.  WINGS Express allows students to view and manage their account online.  In WINGS Express students may view their fee statement, view current account activity, make online payments, enroll in direct deposit, and add authorized users.  Students are encouraged to set up direct deposit for refunds.  Students are also encouraged to add parents as authorized users so they may access Bursar account information and make payments.  Paper bills are no longer mailed to students.  Fee statements are generated at the end of each month and during the first few days of the month a notification email is sent to students’ WSU email and to authorized users reminding them that the new fee statement is available.  Students may access their online fee statement by logging on to WINGS Express via WINGS at http://wings.wright.edu.  

Students have the option of using the Student Installment Payment Plan (SIPP) which allows them to pay their fees in 3 installments over the quarter, rather than making a single payment at the beginning of the quarter.  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 $50 late fee for each payment that is received after the established due date. Further information about SIPP is available at http://www.wright.edu/admissions/bursar/sipp.html or by contacting the Office of the Bursar.  Students may enroll and pay SIPP payments through WINGS Express via WINGS at http://wings.wright.edu.  Check or Money Order SIPP payments can be mailed or paid in person at the Office of the Bursar.

Students have the following options for payment of fees: Students may pay online using E-Check/ACH free of charge.  Students may also pay online using a credit card.  The university accepts Mastercard, Discover, and American Express.  A 2.75% convenience fee will be assessed to pay with credit card.  Credit cards are only accepted online.  Students can send check or money order payments to WSU Office of the Bursar, 3640 Colonel Glenn Highway, Dayton, OH 45435.  Students can pay in person at the Bursar Fee Payment windows in E236 Student Union using check, money order, or cash.  Students may also place payments in the drop box located in the hall adjacent to the Bursar Fee Payment windows. Mailed payments must be received by the fee payment deadline in order to prevent the cancellation of registration or the assessment of a late fee.  Checks or money orders should be made payable to Wright State University and sent to the attention of the Office of the Bursar. Checks 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.

If a student’s fees are paid by an agency or sponsor, financial aid, or a fee waiver it is the student’s responsibility to ensure that these payments are arranged before the fee payment deadline.

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.
