Payment of Fees


An important part of every student’s educational experience is learning to manage money and to responsibly discharge the financial obligations one may incur. With this in mind, The W expects that you will promptly pay all University bills and accounts when due. Students who have not fulfilled their obligations to the University may not register for classes until all accounts are paid. The University reserves the right not to issue transcripts and letters of good standing to students who have not paid fees, tuition, traffic fines, library fines, etc.

For more information, contact the University Accounting Office, Welty Hall - Room 106, (662) 329-7210.


Fees and/or other bills are to be paid at the University Accounting Office unless otherwise noted. Financial aid funds are generally disbursed to pay a student’s account after the first two weeks of classes after attendance is verified.

The Interest-Free Monthly Payment Option

Mississippi University for Women has contracted with Tuition Management Systems, Inc., to offer annual (9 or 10 payments) and semester (4 or 5 payments) plans. This monthly payment option is an alternative to paying the total cost at the beginning of each semester. The only cost is an enrollment fee of $65 for the annual plans and $46 for the semester plans; there is no interest charge.  Call (800) 722-4867 and speak with a professional payment counselor about the payment plan that is best for you.

Students may pay fees with VISA or MasterCard credit cards either at the University Accounting’s cashier windows or through BANNER Web. VISA or MasterCard can be used to pay student account balances, or to make purchases at the MUW Bookstore. Most banks have check cards available through VISA and MasterCard which can be used to deduct a payment directly from a checking account and the Bookend will accept these cards.
