  • Tuition assistance paid by a government agency, e.g., military
  • Employer reimbursement
  • Deferred payment plan

The first four options require the submission of appropriate documentation. The deferred payment plan option requires a deferred payment fee to be paid at the time of registration. The University reserves the right to refuse deferred payment privileges for any student whose account is overdue or has been overdue in the past.

Webster accepts MasterCard, Discover, VISA, and money orders or personal checks made payable to Webster University as payment.

Students are financially responsible for all courses not officially dropped by the deadline. Webster University reserves the right to withhold transcripts or diplomas related to enrollment for a current term and/or refuse or cancel enrollment for future terms, if any tuition or other fees or charges owed to the University are not paid when due. In the event an account is referred to an agency or attorney for collection, the student promises to pay, in addition to all amounts otherwise due to Webster University, the costs and expenses of such collection and/or representation not to exceed 33-1/3% of the amount owed, including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys' fees and expenses (whether or not litigation is commenced), to the extent permitted by applicable law.
