ovember is upon us; where does the time go? Students have completed mid-terms, and fall break in October; November now brings many other challenges and joys. Anticipation is high as the college prepares for the traditional Thanksgiving dinner; students are antsy as they anticipate dinners with family and friends, end of the semester, class registration for January Term and, especially, spring. After the long Thanksgiving break, students have one full week of classes and finals begin. Reality and panic hit when students realize the fall semester is almost over….WHERE DOES THE TIME GO?
As a parent, there are a couple of items about registration you may need to know.
- During student registration, the automatic billing is turned off until bills are generated approximately the first week in December. The student balance is in real time and provides a look at additional charges for bookstore purchases, parking fees/fines, and/or residential fines, if applicable.
- When a student makes a payment on their account through My Wilson (the student portal), they will see it reflected immediately in the account balance.
- When a student/parent makes a payment outside of My Wilson, the payment will be credited as soon as it is recorded.
Confusing, probably. For assistance, find the column at the left of this page, click on Tuition and fees. Wilson College wishes to assist in any way possible. If there is a question or concern, please call us immediately. Tine Freeman is your contact in the Business Office, firstname.lastname@example.org or call 717-262-2006, ext. 3251.
During the remainder of the month, you may hear more complaints than usual about everything from your student. This is normal and here is a sample of what you might hear: instructors are asking too much, the food is not good, parking UGH! I am the only one failing this class, I want to come home now; I will be on probation! I cannot stay, I hate my roommate. If you have questions, please call or email me. email@example.com or 717-262-2006, ext. 3273. The college prepares for all these types of scenarios including the ones where we can congratulate students on doing well, making the winning goal for the season, leading an event or student organization, or taking one step at a time toward a goal.
