Full payment and/or acceptable documentation that demonstrates your balance will be fully paid must be received prior to the published deadline. Students who reside in campus housing will not be permitted to move into their campus residences until their accounts are current. Payment must be made in U.S. dollars, checks must be drawn on U.S. Banks and credited to the student’s account by August 1 (fall semester due date) or January 1 (spring semester due date).
Acceptable documentation includes enrollment in the Interest-Free Monthly Payment Option for your full balance due, a copy of an award letter for an outside scholarship or a copy of a billing authorization or sponsorship letter. Please note, loans based on the creditworthiness of the borrower may not be deducted without approval from the lender. A copy of an approval notice and signed promissory note will be accepted as documentation for this type of loan.
Wheaton College policy requires the withholding of all credits, educational services, issuance of transcripts, and certifications of academic records from any person whose financial obligations to the College (including delinquent accounts, deferred balances and liability for damage) are due and/or unpaid.
If any overdue obligation is referred either to the College Collection Department or to an outside agency or attorney for collection efforts and/or legal suit, the debt is increased to cover all reasonable costs of collection, including collection agency and attorney fees and court costs. By registering for any class in the College, each student accepts and agrees to be bound by the foregoing College policy as applied to any preexisting or future obligation to the college.
