Registration Process

Once a student has registered for classes, financial arrangements must be made with the Business Office prior to the first day of the trimester. Failure to contact the business office and make the required minimum payment and/or verify that enough financial aid funds have approved to satisfy all costs associated with attending school for the enrolled trimester will result in late fees being assessed and possible removal from class.  At the time the student has completed all financial arrangements, the business office will update the student’s status to OFFICIAL and give him/her an official registration copy. This copy is important because it must be presented to professors as verification that all registration requirements have been met.

Returning Students

who have failed to complete financial arrangements and pick up their Official Registration by the Thursday prior to the first day of classes will be charged a $50.00 late fee.  Students who have not made payment arrangements by the Friday of the first week of class will be charged another $50 deferred payment/administrative fee.

New Students

who register on general registration day must make payment arrangements at the time of registration in order to avoid a $50.00 late payment fee.  Students registering after the pre-registration period will not receive a bill by mail, but must come to the business office for a copy of the schedule of classes and to make payment arrangements.

Allowing Others to Conduct Business for the Student

Should a student wish to allow a parent or other related individual to discuss financial information with the business office, a form giving “Permission to Release Information to a Third Party” must be completed and signed in the Business Office and witnessed by a WCU employee.  If this form is not in place, the Business Office personnel cannot discuss or release any information concerning the account to a person other than the student.  This form is available here and in the Business Office at any of our campus locations.  It is still the student’s responsibility to make sure that the registration process has been completed by the deadline.
