ANNOUNCEMENTS

THE DUE DATE FOR FALL PAYMENT IS JULY 27, 2016

However, due to the many financial issues WVU students have faced this summer, including students affected by recent flooding in the southern region of the state, a late payment fee will not be assessed in August. We are working to help these students by reviewing their financial aid eligibility based on the family’s current financial situation. Students impacted by the flooding who would like their aid eligibility reevaluated can submit a Review of Financial Hardship Due to Natural Disaster.

Important notice for students regarding a change in fall 2016 semester billing policies:

Starting with the fall 2016 semester, students will no longer be automatically removed from classes for non-payment. This means you MUST withdraw from your courses if you do not plan on returning for the fall semester. If you remain registered for courses you do not attend, you will incur financial responsibility for the courses, even if you do not attend the classes. Please withdraw from your courses prior to the fall semester or you will be responsible for a bill.

NEW REFUND PROCESS

Effective July 1, refunds will be processed through Tuition Management Systems (TMS). If you are registered for fall, you will receive an email to your MIX with instructions on how to sign up for direct deposit. Your existing preferences in the old system through PNC will no longer be effective after June 30. Visit studentaccounts.wvu.edu/refunds for more information or to sign up!
