2006 - 2007 Expenses

Tuition | Residence Hall Charges | General Fees | Technology Fee | Other Fees | Health & Accident Insurance | Payment of Tuition and Fees | Appeals

As a private institution of higher learning, Westminster receives very limited financial support from public taxes. Each student registering at the college is charged tuition at a rate that covers approximately 70 percent of the cost of his/her educational program. The balance of the cost must be met by income received from gifts and endowments from trustees, alumni, faculty, churches, and other friends of the college who help to underwrite the education that Westminster provides. The Board of Trustees of Westminster College reserves the right to change tuition and fees at any time.

Payment of Tuition and Fees

Tuition, fees, and room and board charges are due in full on the first day of the given semester. Students registering late must pay in full when they register. Students unable to pay in full must make other arrangements with the Accounts Receivable Office by the second week of the semester. The college reserves the right to grant or deny financing for any student based on his or her credit worthiness. In addition, the college reserves the right to cancel the registration of any student who fails to comply with all terms of his or her financial obligation with the college. Additional information on this policy is available in the Accounts Receivable Office. Statements of credits, certificates of graduation, or transcripts are issued only to students who are current in their obligations with the college. All outstanding charges are due and payable at the time students leave the college.

Tuition Appeals

Students may appeal charges of tuition and fees (for personal and/or medical reasons) by submitting a letter of appeal and appropriate documentation. The appeal can be submitted to any member of the Appeals Committee from the following offices: Accounts Receivable, Registrar's Office, Financial Aid, and the Dean of Students.

Appeal requests must be submitted within six weeks after the end of the semester in question. Approved appeals will be made retroactive only to the last date of attendance.

Changes in registered hours may change any financial aid disbursed to an account (see also Financial Aid Miscellaneous Information, Withdrawal from College, Medical Withdrawal).
