Here are the policies concerning your student account you should know about.
All students registered at Texas Wesleyan University assume financial responsibility for tuition and fees as established by the University and approved by the University Board of Trustees.
Students must meet financial obligations or will be dropped from classes.
To meet your financial obligation, students are required to meet one of the following criteria:
- Have an “accepted status” for your financial aid package, as well as a completed verification and any other financial aid requirements that covers your entire account balance
- Set up a payment plan for the full amount by the payment due date
- Payment in full by the payment due date
- If you are expecting your tuition to be funded by an outside third party, such as a scholarship or sponsorship from an organization outside of Texas Wesleyan by your employer, or by a private loan, you must notify the cashier’s office and provide documentation before your payment due date to avoid class cancellation
- A combination of the above
Dates are based on the start of each term, which may be before your first day of class. Please refer to the academic calendar to note the term start date.
- The first deregistration will be 7 class days prior to the term start date
- The second deregistration will be on the term start date
- Final deregistration will be 11 class days after the term start date
Students that register within 72 hours of a scheduled deregistration will not be subject to that deregistration but will be subject to the next scheduled deregistration, with the exception being the last deregistration.
Students who are deregistered will have an opportunity to reregister for available classes until the seventh calendar day of classes with dean and faculty approval.
Texas Wesleyan University will send a list of students with credit balances to the Texas Wesleyan/Follett bookstore, two weeks prior to the beginning of school to use to purchase books and other educational material. A credit balance is an overpayment of charges on the student account that could be attributed to cash payments, student loans, Pell grant, other grants, or other financial aid including institutional aid. The voucher system will stay open for 1 week after the beginning of school for a total of three weeks to charge books to their student account by voucher. The maximum allowed for charges is $750.
Should the student need more materials, the bookstore can contact the cashier’s office to get approval for a higher amount. A higher amount will be approved if the student’s credit balance will support the charges.
By not using the voucher system, the student automatically declines to participate in the program and no book charges will be incurred. Book charges will be posted the next day to the student account for the charged amount, reducing the credit on their account. Any remaining credit balance will be issued to the student in the form of a refund check. (See refund policy). Regulation 668.164(i)

Beginning refund dates are posted on this website each term. After the first disbursement of title IV financial aid onto the student account, within 14 days a refund check will be issued to the student. Refunds, not associated with Title IV funds, will be processed as quickly as possible. Credits created by institutional aid only, will not generate a refund.
International students with a credit balance, the credit will be transferred up to the next semester to help pay registration cost. If an international student is not returning and wishes a refund, they will need to go to the cashier's office and fill out a request form, which will include a current United States address to mail the check to. Checks will only be mailed to the address on record, so the address will also need to be changed in the Registrar office. We do not mail checks outside of the U.S.
The student will be sent an email to their University email account, notifying them of the day the check will be available for pickup. Students must present their student ID card to pick up a refund check. If you previously set up a direct deposit, you will receive an email notice of deposit.
Unless the Cashier's office is notified by email from the student, checks will be held for pickup for two weeks. After two weeks, they will be mailed to the address on file.
Any request for refund checks to be mailed will only be mailed to the address on record, which the student can verify on Ramlink.
The policy of Texas Wesleyan University is payment is due by the posted payment due date located on the cashier's website under "important information", or upon registration if after that date. If electing to use a payment plan, this should be activated on the day of registration. A $138 late fee is assessed to all students who re- register after being withdrawn for non-payment during late registration. Students must have a zero balance on their previous/current term to be able to register for the next term. See how to make a payment for online payment options.
Non-payment does not guarantee automatic withdrawal. You will need to withdraw at the Registrar office. *Withdrawals processed on the same day as class starts will be subject to penalty.
To maintain student enrollment and school reporting mandated by federal immigration law, international students not participating in a recognized student sponsorship program are deregistered from classes and removed from school on University-chosen but published deregistration date(s) unless a) the student pays in full for the current term by the deadline or b) the student successfully enrolls in and maintains compliance with a University-approved payment plan by the appropriate deadlines.
A student who has a past due account will have a financial hold placed on their student record. A financial hold will prevent a student from obtaining transcripts, registering for next term or participating in graduation. Any student with an account more than 30 days past due may be withdrawn from classes. The student will remain responsible for all unpaid balances incurred. In the event, an account becomes delinquent and is placed with an outside agency for collection, all collection and/or legal fees will be the responsibility of the student. Upon payment, the financial hold will be removed within 24 hours.
