International Student Payments
Wright State University has partnered with peerTransfer to offer an innovative and streamlined way to make international tuition payments. peerTransfer’s mission is to save international students and their families money that would otherwise be lost on bank fees and unfavorable foreign exchange rates. With peerTransfer, you can pay from any country and any bank. You are also offered excellent foreign exchange rates, allowing you to pay in your home currency (in most cases) and save a significant amount of money, as compared to traditional banks. In addition, the posting of the payment into your Wright State University account will be faster, you will be able to track where your payment is in the transfer process via a student dashboard, and you will be notified via email when it is deposited into our account.

The Payment Plan is a way to spread your semester fees, including tuition, insurance, university housing, and other fees over three or four payments. The number of payments depends upon when you enroll in the plan. Books, personal expenses and non-university housing are not included. A non-refundable application fee of $75 effective Fall 2013 is assessed each semester for students using the plan and is paid with the first payment.
Plan payments can be made online through WINGS Express via WINGS with free e-check or debit card, or with credit card (MasterCard, Discover, and American Express) which will include a 2.75% convenience fee. Check and money order payments can also be mailed.
Students are encouraged to sign up for the Payment Plan online via WINGS Express. A tutorial is available through the Bursar/Billing section of the WINGS Resource Center, which demonstrates how to enroll in the plan.
Students can also enroll by completing the Payment Plan Promissory Note (PDF) and mailing the completed form along with the initial payment and application fee to the Office of the Bursar. Students must be current with their student account fees before they are eligible to enroll in the plan. All students interested in this option should pay close attention to the due dates listed on the payment plan promissory note.
Penalties for late payments include, but are not limited to, late fees for each payment and/or a "hold" being placed on your student account which will prevent registration changes and transcript availability. Read through the Payment Plan Frequently Asked Questions to find out more about the payment plan's terms and conditions.
Sponsored Student Payments
The billing is processed on a per term basis. A letter or contract must be presented to the University outlining the sponsor’s guarantee to pay. This authorization must not be contingent upon the student receiving a specific grade or upon a financial need status.
It is the policy of the University to protect our student’s right to confidentiality under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). Sponsors must obtain information regarding grades, transcripts, course listings or other specific information directly from the student unless there is a student authorization to release grades and other information on file.
What is a Sponsored Student?
Sponsored students are students that require Wright State University to bill an outside sponsor for their tuition and fees while they attend the University. Fees can include technology fees, course fees, room/meal plan charges, student legal services fee, and/or health insurance. A letter of authorization is required from the sponsoring agency expressly authorizing Wright State University to bill the sponsor directly for the student's expenses. A third party credit is applied to the student account each term for the covered expenses, which is conditional upon the sponsor's payment.
What are the Sponsored Student's Responsibilities?
- It is the student’s responsibility to ensure the University is provided with a valid authorization letter (contract) from their sponsor before the appropriate due date to avoid cancellation of registration and/or late fees.
- A sponsored student must monitor their student account status regularly. If the sponsor does not cover the total charges, it is the student’s responsibility to pay the balance owed.
- Non-payment by the sponsor immediately becomes the responsibility of the student.
- It is the student’s responsibility to know the duration of the sponsorship as listed in the authorization letter. The University will not notify a student when the sponsorship has expired.
- Additional information required by the sponsor, including grades, transcripts, course(s) and other miscellaneous information, must be supplied by the student.
- If questions arise concerning conditions of the sponsorship the student should contact the sponsor.
- Students may submit agency/third party authorization forms through the 70% refund period of the following term, however; your fees must be paid from other resources by the fee payment deadline.
What are the Sponsor's Responsibilities?
Provide a letter or contract to Wright State University prior to the term fee payment deadline with the following information:
- Student’s name and University ID number
- Description of covered charges, which may include tuition, technology fee, course fees, room/meal plan charges, student legal services fee, and/or health insurance fees
- Any dollar limitations on the covered charges
