Graduate Student Financial Aid & Payment

Wesleyan College can help you find the financial aid and payment plans that work best for you.



Financial Aid Begins with FAFSA

The most important step in applying for federal grants, work-study, and loans for Wesleyan begins with filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form. 

Wesleyan College FAFSA Code:  001600 





Plan for Payment

Billing statements can be seen on WesPortal with your login. The payment criterion must be met by the semester due date to avoid an administrative drop of courses. For more information about billing and payment, please visit the Financial Information section of the Wesleyan Catalogue. If you have any questions, contact the business office at or (478) 757-5120.

Payment options include one of the following:

  • Full payment by cash, check, or credit card. Payments can be made by mail, in person, or on WesPortal with your login.
  • Enrollment in the Cashnet Payment Plan.
  • Financial aid award letter showing sufficient pending financial aid to cover the balance due.
  • Third party agency funding authorization submitted to the college, i.e.: employer reimbursement program, Veterans Administration, etc.
  • A combination of the above items sufficient to cover the balance due.

Graduate students can request $20,500 in federal unsubsidized loans.

Billing Process

Billing typically begins in mid-July for the fall semester, in mid-November for the spring semester, and in early May for the summer terms. No paper bills are mailed. Billing notifications are sent to Wesleyan College student email addresses only.

After billing, students will have 24-hour access to their account statements on WesPortal. Students are responsible for checking their account balance, monitoring any changes in account activity, and ensuring payment by the due dates.

Charges are billed by semester. Financial aid awards are typically allocated between the two semesters

Payment Deadlines

Payment due dates are August 5th for the following fall semester and January 5th for the following spring semester. For summer terms, payment is due by the first day of classes. If a deadline falls on a weekend, payment is due the following business day. Charges resulting from actions taken after the payment deadline (e.g. registration for additional courses, enrollment in housing, etc.) are due at the time the charge is incurred.

Students who have not paid all outstanding charges in full by the payment deadline may be subject to a late fee of $75. Students who have not paid by the close of business on the first day of classes may incur penalties including, but not limited to, additional late fees, network access suspension, or holds on registration for future terms.

In cases where outstanding balances are deemed unreasonably excessive, as determined by the Office of the Controller, students may be immediately removed from all registered courses.

Employer Reimbursement

Students who are eligible for tuition reimbursement by an employer may contact the Business Office for assistance with obtaining any required documentation for participation in employer tuition reimbursement programs. In some cases, Wesleyan may permit students to defer payment for a term or other reasonable period until employer reimbursement funds are received. Should an employer fail to approve reimbursement, students remain responsible for payment of all outstanding charges.
