Students are ultimately responsible for payment of their tuition and fees even though they may be eligible for Financial Aid. Tuition and fee charges are due at the time of Registration.
Special payment arrangements are made at the discretion of the Vice President for Business and Finance. All student account balances must be paid in full no later than one (1) week before the beginning of Final Exams. Students not paying bills promptly are subject to a 5% penalty on the total outstanding balance. At the end of each semester, any outstanding balance is charged appropriate interest. Cash, cashier’s check, money order, or credit cards (MasterCard and Visa) can be used to make all payments. Personal checks may be accepted after appropriate verification. Students will not be allowed to register for classes if they have a prior semester balance. Students may apply for an exception. Application for an exception does not guarantee approval.
If financial aid (federal and state) is used to supplement the cost of tuition and fees, students and/or parents will be required to submit the latest year’s income tax return. Students may also be required to submit other documents to process and generate an official award letter before registration. Otherwise, student’s registration is delayed. (Registration is completed when total tuition, fees, and room and board charges are paid to the Cashier’s Office and appropriate arrangements are made with the Student Accounts Office. and the student receives a current I.D. card). Students should maintain a record of all financial documents received from the University for future reference.
Registration at EWU is considered a binding contract between the student and the University for the academic semester of enrollment. Therefore, upon completing the registration process, a student has accepted full responsibility as stated in this publication.

Other sources of support to the University include the contribution from the African Methodist Episcopal Church (AME), the United Negro College Fund (UNCF), grants (federal, state, local, and private), and private gifts.
Consistent with the University’s mission statement, EWU provides an opportunity for students to receive a post-secondary degree regardless of their social, educational, or economic background. In effort to accommodate the student body, EWU’s policy is to keep charges as low as possible without affecting the quality of instruction, services, and accommodations. While the importance of stabilized educational expense is clearly understood, EWU reserves the right to adjust tuition and fees at the end of any semester, should conditions warrant.
