It’s Time to Pay for Summer Classes

Please pay hereThe tuition payment deadline is coming right up if you’re registered for any summer classes.  You need to either pay in full, sign up for a payment plan, or have your financial aid secured by this Thursday, June 20th.

The Cashier window in Laidlaw Center is open Monday through Thursday 10am to 5pm, if you want to pay in person.

To pay online with a credit card, use Internet Explorer.  Click the PAY NOW button at the right side of Whatcom’s home page to go to the tuition payment page.

If you sign up by June 20th for the Nelnet tuition payment plan, you can make a 60% down payment now and pay the rest of your tuition in two 20% payments later in the summer.  Click here for more information.

If you’re expecting to use financial aid, keep checking the Financial Aid Portal for your award.  Every student receiving summer financial aid needs to turn in a Quarterly Adjustment form to the Financial Aid Office.  And don’t forget to make your choice as to how you want to receive your “refund,” which is the new name for any amount left after your tuition has been paid.  When you get that green HigherOne envelope in the mail, read the letter and hold onto the card!!  The college won’t be distributing checks on the first day of the quarter.  Make your choice through HigherOne to get your money as quickly as possible.  Click here for more information.
