On Demand Bills - WPI does not send paper or electronic bills

Students receive a communication to their WPI email and Workday notifications when their semester charges are available for viewing. If multiple notifications are received, it is important to check your student account, as something may have changed that needs your attention. From your financial student account in Workday, you can select to print a semester statement (On Demand Bill) at any time and as many times as you need for updates. Students may allow friends and family to view activity and remit payment for your student account. 

Semester Due Dates

WPI notifies students when the fall and spring semester charges have posted to their student account. Fall charges are posted to the student’s Workday account in July and are due in August. Spring charges are posted in December and are due in January. WPI does not add due dates per term within the semester i.e., A, B, C, D.  Any registration within the semester i.e., A, B, C, D, or late registration for course(s) after the due date is due right after you register.

Non-matriculated students (not enrolled in a WPI degree program) are required to pay right after you register. Additionally, no third party letter(s) of credit are accepted for non-matriculated students. Students must pay for the course(s) and be reimbursed. There are no payment plan options available for non-matriculated students. 

For E-Term(Summer) if a WPI matriculated student registers prior to a week before the first day of class, the charge will post to the student account. E-Term typically has two due dates, an E1 due date and an E2 & projects due date. If a student registers after the due date, payment is due after you register.

Rent is due the first (1st) of the month for graduate students living on campus. Any rent payment not received is subject to a late fee and registration hold.

Any additional charge(s) to a student account incurred once the semester begins becomes due immediately.

Please note, graduate students eligible for tuition reduction through discount/scholarship will receive only one discount/scholarship.  The greatest tuition reduction available to them will be applied.

Late Fees

Late fees of up to $250 will be assessed on unpaid balances and registration holds will be placed on accounts that are not paid by the semester due date. Late rent payments for graduate students are also subject to a registration hold and late fees. Rent is due the first (1st) of each month. 

WPI fully supports the Veterans Benefits and Transition Act of 2018. Sec. 103 amends US code to prevent schools from penalizing Ch. 31 or 33 students if/when the VA is late making payments. WPI policy supports and agrees to the VA recommendations of the following while waiting for VA payments: WPI agrees to not prevent enrollment, charge a late penalty fee(s), require alternative or additional sources of funding or deny access to school resources

Payment Options

WPI makes it easy to pay your account balance. We provide multiple options including ACH/electronic check, credit card, payment plans and more.

Health Insurance

All full-time graduate students must be covered by health insurance equivalent to that offered under the WPI Student Health Insurance Plan.
