Please Be Aware

  • For a student's awarded Scholarship-Financial Aid to pay to their Bursar Student Account (not including Work-Study award dollars), the student's Scholarship-Financial Aid Application file must be complete. Furthermore, if the student wishes to receive their awarded Federal Loan dollars, the student must complete the Federal Loan's Entrance Counseling and Master Promissory Note (MPN) on the Federal website. In addition, the student must register for the minimum number of credit hours as detailed on their Financial Aid Award letter per enrollment period.
  • If a student has been awarded Scholarship-Financial Aid for the enrollment period, before any Drop or Withdrawal from a course, the student must always first check with the Financial Aid office to see if any of the student's awarded Scholarship-Financial Aid will be cancelled increasing the student's out-of-pocket balance due.
  • For a student to be eligible to register for the next consecutive enrollment period, the student's unpaid Bursar Student Account balance must be at $1,500.00 or less.

Financial Responsibility

Students are financially responsible for all courses not officially dropped by the deadline. Webster University reserves the right to withhold transcripts and diplomas, and refuse enrollment for future terms, if any tuition or other fees or charges owed to the University are not paid when due. A ten day waiting period is enforced when a personal check payment is applied to a past-due balance. In the event an account is referred to an agency or attorney for collection, a 33-1/3% fee will be added to the account, and 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, including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys' fees and expenses (whether or not litigation is commenced), to the extent permitted by applicable law.
