For many students, financial aid covers a significant part of their educational costs. Some students need additional options to help pay for part 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 interest-free monthly payment plan is available for 5 months (semester) or up to 12 months (academic year) for Traditional students to pay the outstanding balance not covered by financial aid. 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 $70 or $85 enrollment fee through Official Payments. More information is available from the Business Office
  • Payment on Account - Payments may be made on the student's account by debit or credit card (Visa, MasterCard, Discover or American Express) or e-check through a secure site
  • International Wire Transfer- Wilson College has parternered with Western Union Business Solutions to provide an easier way to wire transfer payment.  To obtain banking information in your local currency click on the  secure link
  • 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 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 assist non-degree seeking students or those who enroll less than half time. Repayment options often begin after the student leaves Wilson.  The minimum monthly payment amounts and interest rates vary by lender.

Wilson College requires all students have either paid their account balance in full or have made approved payment arrangements by the required payment due date for each term, which are defined below.


Invoices are not mailed to students.  Students are required to check their student portal and Wilson College e-mail account for any balance related information.
