In compliance with WVU Student Payment Policy, a non-refundable 1.5% late fee will be assessed on all outstanding balances greater than and including $200 on the second day of each month.
All payments being mailed must be received and posted by the Office of Student Accounts prior to each due date. Therefore, it is important to allow sufficient time for your payment to be received and posted by our office. Please allow 5-7 business days for all mailed payments to be received and posted.
Because of potential delays in U.S. mail, we encourage all students
to pay electronically through STAR, where all payments are updated and
Students that do not meet payment deadlines timely will be subject to having their account placed on financial hold.These holds can only be released after the balance has been paid in full or a previous tuition pay contract has been brought up to date. Negative effects include inability to
- register for new courses
- view grades
- get transcripts
If a debt is outstanding in addition to holds and late fees a student can be placed in collections. WVU attempts to prevent this by contacting students by Email, Paper Bills, and other various communications. Once all internal efforts have been exhausted, WVU will issue a final letter to the student with a deadline for payment. Failure to pay by the deadline will result in the student’s account being referred to an outside agency for collection, which normally occurs near the end of the semester in which there is a delinquent balance. In addition to holds, collection placement will have a negative effect on your credit score. If you are collections you can contact the appropriate agency below.
