Policies and Procedures


  • Wheaton College accepts checks, cash and wire transfers for payment. We do not accept credit or debit cards. Checks should be payable to Wheaton College. Post-dated checks cannot be accepted. Wire information is available by contacting the Student Accounts Office.
  • A one-time $75.00 penalty will be charged if the account balance is not received by the first Wednesday of the current semester. Late fees of 1.5% per month will then be assessed on any past-due balance.
  • Failure to complete all paperwork required by the Financial Aid Office can delay the release of funds, resulting in late charges being assessed and the inability to register for future semesters.
  • If a student is receiving an outside scholarship, it is his/her responsibility to inform the scholarship organization of the payment due date. If a scholarship is not received by the due date, the student is responsible for payment.
  • Students with unpaid accounts are not permitted to re-enroll or receive diplomas or transcripts. Additionally, these past-due accounts will be assigned to an outside billing service 60 days after enrollment ceases and are subject to credit bureau reporting. Accounts that are assigned will be responsible for principle, interest, late charges and collection costs. For complete detail of the Wheaton College Student Accounts policies refer to the Wheaton College Catalog.
  • Semester bills are sent to the student’s permanent mailing address. Monthly account statements default to the student’s CPO box, unless an alternative address has been requested by the student.
