Student Handbook 2021-2022

Walsh

Payment Information

When registering for classes, students are entering into a financial obligation, which includes non-refundable fees. Students are responsible for ensuring that their payment is received by the payment due date.

Students may make full payment of tuition and fees after the payment period begins. Refer to the Tuition and Fees section of the Walsh website for how to make a payment with electronic check, credit/debit card, check, or cash or utilize one of the following payment methods listed below.

Students using financial aid or any other form of tuition assistance are responsible to ensure that all required paperwork is submitted by the payment due date.

Qualified Employer or Third-Party Voucher

This option is available to students whose employer or other third party pays Walsh directly for tuition and/or fees. The payment of tuition must not be dependent on grades. Only official employer vouchers or purchase orders will be accepted. Applications for vouchers will not be accepted. Direct billing of all third parties will take place after the add/drop period. If the vouchers are received after the first day of the withdrawal period, late fees will be assessed on the appropriate date.

Submitting an employer or third-party voucher does not release a student’s liability of tuition and fees. Students are responsible for any balance their voucher may not cover (payment due by the payment due date) or if their employer fails to pay Walsh.

Financial Aid/Scholarship Payments

Students must complete and file all necessary paperwork to receive financial aid (including scholarships, grants, and loans). Please refer to the Financial Aid section of this handbook.

Financial aid/scholarship payments will be applied to student accounts after the add/drop period. Financial aid recipients are permitted to charge books to their account until the add/drop period is over. The bookstore will have a list of all eligible students. If aid exceeds the tuition and fees charges, a refund will be issued within 14 days from the date the financial aid/scholarship was applied to the student account. If a balance remains on a student’s account after aid is applied, payment is due in full by the payment due date. Students are also responsible for any balance resulting from any adjustments made in compliance with federal regulations or scholarship requirements. Federal regulations prohibit the use of Title IV funds to pay late fees. Students are responsible for paying any late fees directly to Walsh before the next payment due date.

GI Bill® Education Benefits

Students must complete and file all necessary paperwork to receive GI Bill® Education Benefits. Chapter of eligibility will determine how tuition and fees are to be paid to Walsh. Please refer to the Veteran Students section of this Handbook.

Students are responsible for any balance not paid by their GI Bill® Education Benefits including any adjustments made in compliance with federal regulations. Refer to the appropriate Benefit packet for more information and payment deadlines.

MET

Students who have a MET account set up with the State of Michigan need to inform the MET office that they will be attending Walsh. The MET office will submit the appropriate paperwork to Walsh indicating the balance in the MET account. If a balance remains on a student’s account after MET has been billed, payment is due in full by the payment due date.

International Payments

Walsh has partnered with Flywire in order to streamline the process of international payments. Flywire allows you to pay securely from any country and any bank, generally in your home currency. Refer to the Tuition and Fees section of the Walsh website for how to make a payment using Flywire. Any excess funds not used at the time of the wire will be sent back to the sender.

Payment Plans

Students may enroll in a 3 or 6 month payment plan that is administered by an external processor. Fees will be assessed by the external vendor for establishing a payment plan. Early enrollment is encouraged to avoid late fees.

Once the students have established the terms of their payment plan, they may set up automatic or manual payments. Students may use a credit card, debit card, or an e-check to make payments on their plan. Credit cards and debit cards will be assessed a non-refundable convenience fee by the processor. Payments may be made through Official Payments or directly through Self-Service for Students. Please allow 2 business days for any payment to be posted to the student’s account. A student may pay their account balance in full, at any time, and without penalty.

Please note that entering into a payment plan does not allow students to register with a past due balance, or release the financial hold on the student’s account.

Refer to the Tuition and Fees section of the Walsh website for additional information on payment plans.
