Welcome to Willamette University! This page introduces time-sensitive items related to student accounts to assist incoming students in making a smooth transition into the fall semester.

Students are billed for fall semester tuition on or near July 15th. Students are able to view invoices and billing activity on the University's payment system, Bill+Payment.
