Wheaton Installment Plan

Menu

 The Wheaton Installment Plan (WIP) is excited to offer online payment plans for the 2015-16 school year.  It is designed to provide students and parents an alternative to lump-sum semester payments for their education costs.  Participants are able to budget costs into equal, interest-free payments that are automatically withdrawn from a checking or savings account.  The only cost to participate is a small non-refundable enrollment fee.

There are 3 easy steps...

1.  Determine your Plan Budget:  Using the information from the costs tab on this page or your scheduled/bill, calculate your costs for the semester or year and subtract your expected aid to determine your budget.

2.  Decide which plan fits your needs:  Plan details are listed below.

3.  Enroll on-line:  Make sure you have your bank account information available and use this link to enroll:  Click here

How will I know if I budgeted correctly?

This is done by comparing your budget to your schedule/bill. You may need to either adjust your budget or make a change to your schedule/bill.

Please note that monthly statements default to the student CPO box but may be changed to an alternate address upon the student’s request. Additionally, student account information can be accessed on-line through BannerWeb.

What if I show a credit balance in my student account?

Credit balances will only be refunded upon completion of the payment plan. Credit balances may be refigured into your budget, however, at any time during the semester.

Can I register for future semesters if my payment is late?

Payments are due on the 10th of the month. WIP accounts that are not current at the time of registration will preclude those students from registration.

Can I change my housing, meal plan or insurance through WIP?

No, all changes must be made through the respective office(s). Solely listing a change on your worksheet will not process the desired adjustment.

Will I be able to view my Installment plan on-line?

Yes!  At enrollment you will be asked to create a login and password in which you can view and make changes to your existing plan at anytime.

Will I automatically be re-enrolled on WIP for future terms?

No. You must complete a enrollment form and mail it along with required payments and enrollment fee each time you wish to participate in WIP.
