The charges on your account will not be split into 3 installments until after add/drop on September 27th to ensure all charges on the account will be included in the payment plan for your first installment on October 15th.  

Reminder-Tuition Late fees are not assessed until October 3rd


  • You are free to make payments on your account during this time as the balance owed on add/drop will be what is split. Any payment made towards your account prior to add/drop will not count towards your first installment. 
  • Students who have a past due balance are not eligible to enroll in the payment plan. If your past due balance is not paid in full by the end of the enrollment period, your $50 enrollment fee will be applied towards your balance owed. You will be emailed if your past due balance is preventing your enrollment.

To pay the enrollment fee, please use the payment plan enrollment fee form.

  • Paying the $50 Payment Plan Enrollment Fee does not enable automatic payments of the payment plan installments. The installments will need to be paid online through your MyCWU access (please select the correct installment), or with a check mailed to the Cashiers Office.
  • Do not enroll in the payment plan if your estimated Financial Aid will pay the balance of your account. 

Your Fall charges are split after add/drop and your balance will be divided into three installments –due by October 15th, November 15th, & December 15th.  

  • If you are living in an on-campus apartment and would like to have all your quarterly rent included in the payment plan, please talk to housing prior to add/drop, to get all months’ rent charged at the beginning of each quarter. 
  • To avoid additional late fees, you must make your installment payments on time and pay them in full.
  • Installments left unpaid will be charged a $20 late fee, and a No Enrollment hold will be added to the account which will prevent enrolling in classes the following quarter till the installments are up to date.
  • Any balance remaining after the last installment is due is subject to all published tuition and housing late fees that were waived for enrollment in the payment plan.

*Note: Running Start students are not eligible to enroll in the payment plan.
