Current Costs of Enrollment

Students should refer to the PennWest University website at: pennwest.edu and choose the campus you are attending for current costs of enrollment and detailed billing and payment information.

Student Invoices

Student invoices (bills) are not mailed to students. Students can view and print their electronic invoices (bills) via the Student Accounts Portal my.pennwest.edu approximately 30 days prior to the start of the fall and spring semester.

Billing for summer and winter semesters is typically 15 days prior to the start of classes. Students are billed each term (i.e. summer, fall, winter and spring) and payment is expected by the Friday before classes begin each semester.

Monthly Payment Plan

During a regular semester, the monthly payment can be divided into 5,4, or 3 payments of the total charges for the semester, minus any financial aid. A non-refundable payment plan fee of $40 per semester will be charged to your student account. The budget amount includes tuition, fees, room and board for the current semester. If financial aid is awarded after the payment plan has been set up, you must continue to make regular payments until the aid is applied and the balance is paid in full. Your budget will adjust accordingly for payment received on your account. The payments are due by the 10th of each month. Once registered for the payment plan, installment reminders will be sent to the student’s email and to authorized users monthly; no paper statements will be generated.

After you enter the “user’s” information, the “authorized user” will receive emails with the access codes and directions for logging in to the PennWest University Authorized Payment Processor” system where they can make a payment to your student account & view account details with your discretion. Make sure you select the authorization you wish to grant the “User.”

Pennwest University Book Voucher

The book voucher fund is an interest -free fund that students may utilize for educational books and supplies purchased at the University bookstore at each campus. Students must have excess financial aid to cover the cost of the books and be enrolled in a degree seeking program at least half-time (6 credits). Students must be in good standing with the university.

The voucher is an advance of your anticipated financial aid for use at the University Book Store at your PennWest home campus and must be repaid. The voucher will be automatically paid from any excess federal, state, institutional, or private financial aid that is available at the time the charge is posted to your student account.  Adjustments to your student account (adding/dropping credits or changing housing and meal plans) could affect amount of aid available before financial aid is posted to your student account.  If a student does not have sufficient financial aid to cover the book voucher (maximum amount of $600) then student will be responsible for the resulting balance due on the account
