Additional processing fees are applicable and this option is only available to MasterCard, American Express, and Discover cardholders. Click here to make a credit card payment.
A. Tuition Management Systems (TMS) is the most popular method of payment. TMS allows you to spread your entire year’s cost over a span of 10 months… interest free!!! There is a nominal enrollment fee of $65. The phone number to reach TMS is 1-800-722-4867. (You can also reach them on the web at www.afford.com). You will need the student’s Social Security Number as well as the total budgeted amount for the academic year. TMS only knows what our basic costs are and do not know what your individual tuition bill is for the year.
A. You will make your payments to TMS by the 1st of each month and TMS transfers the funds to us between the 25th and 28th of each month.
A. Statements are sent 5 times a year. The statement is for your records. It is always important to review your actual charges in comparison to your budgeted amount with TMS. Any miscellaneous charges that you do not have reflected in your TMS budget should be paid directly to the University by the statement due date.
A. The Office of Student Accounts is always glad to personally answer any questions you may have about your account; however, 24/7 access to your personal account is available through use of the myWitt Portal on Wittenberg’s Web Page.
A. The student receives written notification of the discipline fine and why they are being charged. The student then has approximately 15 days to pay the fine or it is placed onto their Student Account. The Office of Student Accounts only processes the charge and is not aware of the reason for it. If you have further questions regarding the fine, you may call the Office of Student Development at 937-327-7800.
A. Personal checks can be cashed, with proper identification, at the Office of Student Accounts, 3rd floor Reci, or the Student Center Mail Service Window. There is a $50.00 per check per day limit.
A. All returned checks are redeposited if the check has not been stamped by the bank- DO NOT DEPOSIT AGAIN. If the check still fails to clear, a $25.00 fee is assessed to the student’s account and a hold is placed on the account, which blocks academic schedule changes and future registration until restitution of funds is made. After two (2) NSF checks, the student/parent will be required to make subsequent payments with cash, cashier’s check, or money order. Also, check-cashing privileges will be revoked for that student for the remainder of the academic year.
A. You have an outstanding balance on your account caused by either lack of payment or unfinished Financial Aid paperwork.
A. The student's address is maintained by the Office of the Registrar. To update your permanent or local address, you may go to myWitt (http://my.wittenberg.edu/) and change your address under Biographical Information Update.
