Fall Fees Due August 15th to Avoid Course Cancellation

Aug 7, 2018

Fall billing statements are available now in WINGS Express.  Fees must be paid, covered by financial aid, or enrolled in a payment plan to avoid cancellation of courses.  

To pay your balance, log in to WINGS Express> Student and Financial Aid> Student Fees> Student Account Options> Make a Payment.

To enroll in the payment plan, log in to WINGS Express> Student and Financial Aid> Student Fees> Student Account Options> Enroll in Payment Plan.  The payment plan requires a down payment of 5% of the balance, plus a $25 payment plan fee.  The remaining balance is divided over three even installments due on the 15th of September, October, and November.   The payment plan is highly recommended to students who are waiting for financial aid to be processed.  If verification of the FAFSA is in progress, classes will not be held.  If aid is awarded after the payment plan is set up, the financial aid will reduce or eliminate the remaining installments.

A negative balance indicates a financial aid refund.  Aid will disburse on the first day of classes, with refunds being processed at the end of the first week of the semester.  Classes begin Monday, August 27, 2018.

To check for financial aid requirements, log in to WINGS Express> Student and Financial Aid> Financial Aid and Scholarships> Eligibility Requirements. Any unsatisfied requirements will prevent financial aid disbursement.  

Any questions about financial aid, billing, or registration, please contact Raider Connect at 937-775-4000, raiderconnect@wright.edu, or visit us in the Student Union.  For more information, please visit http://www.wright.edu/raiderconnect.

Financial Aid Disbursement for Fall Will Begin on August 27th

Jul 10, 2018

Disbursement will now take place on the first day of the term (Fall semester begins August 27th, 2018). Disbursement is the process of your awarded financial aid being applied to your student account.

To verify that your financial aid will not be delayed, log into WINGS Express>Student and Financial Aid>Financial Aid and Scholarships>Eligibility Requirements.  All unsatisfied requirements must be satisfied, and academic progress status must be satisfactory for aid to pay.

Students: Please Read the Following Policy Changes Affecting Registration, Financial Aid, and Billing

Apr 19, 2018

Refund, Financial Aid, Registration, Late Fee, and Payment Plan Updates for 2018-2019

To improve student access to open seats in courses and better align the university with federal regulations and best practices, the university has approved process and policy changes to several areas, beginning Summer 2018:

1. Academic Refunds: 

To obtain a 100 percent tuition refund, students will need to officially withdraw from a course by the Friday of the second week of classes during a full-term class, or by the first Friday of classes for A or B-term classes.

Students should contact their instructor or RaiderConnect for 100 percent refund dates and times of courses that are not considered to be A, B, or full-term courses. In general, the 100 percent refund date or time ends when 15 percent of the scheduled course time has been completed.

The withdrawal dates can be found on the Academic Calendar: https://www.wright.edu/raiderconnect/academic-calendar/summer-semester-2018

2. Financial aid disbursement and refunds

Disbursement will now take place on the first day of the term. Disbursement is the process of your awarded financial aid being applied to your student account.

Financial aid refunds are different from disbursement. Refunds are any excess financial aid that is distributed to the student upon the satisfactory completion of all requirements. Students will begin receiving refunds near the end of the first week of classes.

3. Registration cancellation for incomplete payment of fees

Student accounts must be paid in full, enrolled in a payment plan, or have sufficient financial aid to pay the balance by the payment due date to avoid cancellation of classes.

Students applying for financial aid are responsible for checking to ensure all requirements have been met in order to receive financial aid. If there is a shortfall between your tuition and fees and your financial aid award, you must pay the balance in full or enroll in the payment plan by the fee payment due date. If payment is incomplete, student course registrations will be canceled on the third business day after the first due date for each term.

Students receiving third-party assistance must submit the authorization form from your sponsor by the fee payment due date and pay any unpaid charges in full or enroll in a payment plan. If payment is incomplete, student course registrations will be canceled on the third business day after the first due date for each term.

4. Late registration fees

Late registration fees for continuing students will be assessed beginning the first business day after the first fee payment due date for fall and spring terms. For summer term, late registration fees will not be applied until the first day of summer classes.

There are two categories for late registration fees. Only one fee will be applied to a late course registration, which is dependent upon the registration timing:

  • A flat fee of $250 per student will apply for registrations that take place between the first payment due date and the course census date.
  • A fee of $100 per credit hour will be assessed for course registrations that take place after the course census date.

5. Installment payment plan

Students can easily enroll in a four-payment installment plan to pay their tuition and fees using WINGS Express. The plan’s first payment consists of a $25 processing fee and 5 percent down payment toward the account balance. The remaining three payments have defined due dates and will each be equal to one-third of the outstanding account balance. A $50 late-payment fee will be assessed for each late installment payment.

For more information, visit https://www.wright.edu/raiderconnect/accounts-and-bills/revised-refunds-and-registration-process or contact Raider Connect.

Wright Guarantee Tuition Program starting Fall 2018

Mar 22, 2018

The Wright Guarantee Tuition Program guarantees the same annual cost of tuition, housing, and dining over a four-year college career for new incoming, in-state, degree-seeking undergraduate students.

Approved by the Wright State Board of Trustees on Dec. 15 and the Ohio Department of Higher Education on Feb. 5, the Wright Guarantee Tuition Program will be implemented for Fall Semester 2018. Students who enroll in the summer will be placed in the fall cohort, giving them an extra semester of the guarantee.

Under the program, students will pay the exact same rate for tuition, housing, and dining for 12 consecutive semesters. If students fail to graduate within 12 semesters, they will pay the rate charged to the next cohort.

The Wright Tuition Guarantee Program is available at both Dayton and Lake Campus. The program is for newly admitted undergraduate, degree-seeking students who are Ohio residents. The program is not applicable to graduate, professional, international, and currently enrolled undergraduate students. 

Currently enrolled undergraduate students will continue to pay the current tuition rate until such time that the Ohio Legislature approves a tuition rate increase.

Wright State joins other Ohio public universities with similar tuition guarantee programs, including The Ohio State University, Miami University, Ohio University, Kent State University, University of Toledo, Bowling Green State University and Youngstown State University. Wright State will remain one of the most affordable universities in Ohio.
