Expenses

The expenses at Wheaton are moderate and are kept so by the generous gifts and grants from individuals and foundations and by the income from its endowment. Students pay for about seventy percent of the cost of their education; substantial sums are raised annually by the College to cover the difference between what the student pays and the cost of operation.

The tuition rate includes most miscellaneous items for which separate charges are usually made, such as library, student center, health services, and various student activities. Some limitations apply to part-time students.

Substantial student aid funds are available for many students from College, government, and self-help sources. No student should fail to apply to Wheaton for financial reasons.

All costs listed here are as accurate as possible at the time of publication but could be subject to change.

Payment Information & Policies (Settlement of Accounts)

All bills are to be paid at the beginning of each semester and received by the established due date shown on each invoice and in the college calendar.

If no invoice has been received two weeks prior to the start of the semester, one should be requested from the Student Accounts Office. An unpaid account may result in the cancellation of the student's enrollment and will be assessed a $75 late penalty plus a 1˝% charge per month on the unpaid balance. Semester bills are sent to the student’s permanent mailing address (Future) account statements default to the student’s CPO box, unless an alternative address has been requested by the student.

It is recommended that payments be mailed at least five days before the due date shown on the invoice. All payments should be made in U.S. funds. Late payments and replacement of returned checks may be required to be made in certified funds.

The admissions deposit will be applied to the student's account upon enrollment.

Wheaton College offers payment plans for students who wish to finance the cost of education throughout the school year. Visit the Student Accounts website at: www.wheaton.edu/studentaccounts or contact the Student Accounts Office for more information.

Students with unpaid accounts are not permitted to re-enroll or receive diplomas and transcripts. These accounts will be subject to credit bureau reporting 60 days after enrollment ceases. Past due balances may be turned over to a collection agency. Accounts that are assigned will be responsible for principal, interest, late charges, and collection costs. Legal action may also be taken to collect these balances.

Due Dates for the 2015-16 Academic Year

Payment will be due on the first Wednesday of each term. Based on the approved calendar these dates are:

                Fall Semester — Wednesday, August 26, 2015

                Spring Semester — Wednesday, January 13, 2016

                Summer Semester — Wednesday, May 18, 2016

Payment in full is required at least two weeks prior to leaving for overseas programs.

Refunds on Tuition

Effective Dates for Refund. Refunds are computed on the date the course drop application is filed in the Registrar's Office, or on the date of the application for withdrawal given by the Student Development Office. The weeks listed below begin on the first day of the semester regardless of the day a student begins attending classes. No tuition refund will be given after week nine for full semester courses.

Reduction of Load. To decrease a student's load, a drop form with the required signatures must be filed with the Registrar. Full refund is allowed for any resulting difference in tuition charge filed during the first two weeks of the course; and none thereafter.

Withdrawal from College. To withdraw from college during a semester, a student must initiate the withdrawal process (at the Student Development Office for undergraduate students, and the Office of the Director of Graduate Student Care for graduate students) and deliver the completed withdrawal card with the required approvals to the Registrar's Office. See above for the effective date of refund.

Refunds are allowed as follows:

                100% before the end of the second week of the semester

                80% the third week

                70% the fourth week

                60% the fifth and sixth weeks

                50% the seventh week

                40% the eighth and ninth weeks

                none thereafter

                (For specific dates, see Registrar's calendar in this catalog.)

 

Part-time students who enroll only in courses scheduled for eight weeks are allowed the following refund: 100% during the first week of the half session; 80% during the second week; 60% during the third and fourth weeks; 40% during the fifth week; and none thereafter.

For the student who has received financial aid, a refund schedule is used which is consistent with the current government regulations. This schedule is published and available to students in the Financial Aid Office.

Other Refunds

Room. After the semester has begun, refunds will be made on a per day charge.

Board. Refunds will be made on a per day charge from the date the ID meal ticket is returned.

Service charges are not refundable.

Course Fee Refunds.

 

100% if dropped by the end of the second week of the course;
