Payment Options

For many students, financial aid covers a significant part of their educational costs. Some students need some other options to help pay some or all of the tuition, fees, room and board.

Wilson College realizes that many families are unable to pay the full cost at the beginning of every semester. We offer several options for students and their families.

  • Interest-free Monthly Payment Plan – the 10, 11 or 12 month budget plan will be set up to cover the outstanding balance. The family can arrange for the payments to be automatically deducted from a bank account or a credit card on the 20th of every month. There is a $60 enrollment fee. More information is available from the Business Office
  • Federal Parent Loan for Undergraduate Students (PLUS) – a parent with a good credit history may borrow the difference between the student’s cost of education and any awarded financial aid. This federal loan, from a private lending institution, often has lower interest rates and more favorable repayment options than many consumer loans. The process may be started through the Financial Aid Office or online.
  • Alternative Loans – students may apply for additional funds through private lenders. If the student does not have a credit history, then a co-signer will be needed. These private loans may also cover non-educational costs such as horse boarding or for non-degree or less than half time enrollment. Repayment options often begin after the student leaves Wilson. Interest rates and minimum loan amounts vary by lender.
