Tuition for full-time students is an annual tuition and may be payable over 1, 2, 3, or 4 quarters per year depending on the academic schedule of the student. Any student enrolled where the course load meets the full-time definition will pay full-time tuition. Students exceeding the maximum prescribed course load will pay overload charges. Students enrolled in an extended studies program will be charged the annual tuition rate for their extra year of enrollment. Students extending their program for one quarter or less will be charged the quarterly tuition rate or on a per credit hourly rate depending on the program and their enrollment status.

We encourage all students to pay their bills via our secure website at Options for payment include online check payment, debit card, or credit card. MWU accepts American Express, Discover, MasterCard and Visa for tuition payments.

Students who fail to pay tuition at the designated times will have their account processed according to Midwestern University's Overdue Accounts Policy.

The Office of Student Financial Services offers a payment plan that allows students to divide an unpaid balance into equal monthly payments over the course of a quarter. The following are policies regarding the payment plan:

  1. All financial aid must be applied toward the unpaid balance due first before accepting student payments.
  2. It will be mandatory for students to utilize MWU's electronic billing and payment system, available at, to set up the payment plan.
  3. Payment plans will be effective for the entire quarter.
  4. The plan is interest free.
  5. A fee of $25 will be charged per quarter. This fee is to cover costs associated with payment plan enrollment, maintenance, billing, collections, and monthly follow-up on the plans. The balance will be divided into three payments with the $25 fee being added to the initial payment.
  6. A 1.5% late fee will be applied to accounts at 10 days late, and the balance will be accelerated to fully due.
  7. The unpaid balance must be paid by the end of each quarter.
  8. To maintain eligibility, students must adhere to the monthly due dates and not have been late on any current or prior MWU payment plans.

Prepayment Plans

Students have the option to prepay the entire amount of tuition for their program at the tuition rate that is effective for the first year of study. Prepayment of the entire program's tuition must be paid in full by the first day of matriculation.

Any student may prepay tuition a year at a time at the current rate. This tuition must be prepaid one full academic year in advance. For example, a student matriculating in the 2014-2015 academic year in September 2014 who wishes to prepay 2015-2016 tuition must make this prepayment by the first day of matriculation in September 2014. Another example is if this same student does not choose to prepay at matriculation but later decides to prepay year-three at the current year-two rate, this prepayment for year-three must be made by the first day of year-two classes. Any exceptions to this policy must be approved by the Director of Finance.

Credit Cards

The Student Financial Services Office does accept credit cards as payment of tuition, student services fees, disability/health insurance fees, and institutional housing; however, the following requirements do apply:

  1. MasterCard, Visa, Discover and American Express are accepted.
  2. All financial aid funds must be applied to the balance first before using a credit card for payment.
  3. When using a parent's credit card, the Student Financial Services Office must receive a memo authorizing the charges or have phone authorization from the parent.
  4. Credit card payments will not be accepted on accounts already paid in full unless the student provides written authorization to hold the prepayment for future quarters in which the student owes an outstanding balance after applying financial aid funds.
