Billing and Payment Information

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 beginning of July and the beginning of January, respectively. Subsequent statements are distributed on a monthly basis on or around the 1st of each month.

The first bill that you will receive as a student will be distributed via U.S. mail. All other bills after the initial bill 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.

Payment Plans

Payment Plans are available directly on Bill + Payment on a term-by-term basis. 

Payment plans for fall semester are available for enrollment in mid-July once fall semester charges have posted. Spring plans are available in mid-December once spring charges have posted. For each semester, we offer a payment plan 4 or 3 payments, with the final payment for each plan being due in time to register for the next semester.

The enrollment fee is $30 per semester ($60 per year). There are no finance charges, however a $50 fee is incurred for late payments.
