Bills for Tuition and Fees
Willamette University bills students on a semester basis for tuition, fees, room & meal plan, and other incurred charges.
The initial statements for fall and spring semesters are distributed the middle of July and the beginning of January, respectively. Subsequent statements are distributed on a monthly basis on or around the 15th of each month.
The first invoice that you will receive as a student will be distributed via U.S. Mail. All other invoices are posted to Willamette's online billing and payment system, Bill+Payment. You will receive an email notification to your Willamette email address when the eBill is posted to Bill+Payment.
For more information on how to use Willamette's online billing system please view the Bill+Payment Access web page.
Please note that students are responsible for setting up authorized users on Bill+Payment. Parents and guardians will not be able to access Bill+Payment until their student has set them up as an authorized user.
