Wilson University Financial Information
TUITION CONTRACT RESPONSIBILITIES
You are responsible for the full tuition amount of your contract, regardless of how often you login or how many courses you complete.
When your term is complete, unless otherwise documented, you will be automatically registered for each new term.
To withdraw from a program or to request a leave of absence, please contact your Wilson University coach.
Once a student has registered for their courses they will receive an email from a Wilson University Student Accounts representative with the link to set up their program payment plan through PayPal. The payment type and date that the student selects to make their first payment, will be the payment type and date that will be used for the automatic recurring monthly payment.
Payment plans are set up as a 20-month installment; however, payments will be stopped upon completion of a student’s program. A new payment plan must be created if a student exceeds the 20-month installment period.
Wilson strongly recommends that a student does not set up their payment plan until the week prior to their program start date. Students can set up their recurring monthly payment plan at the WU Recurring Payment Portal.
A FLEXIBLE SOLUTION
The tuition plan includes the following:
- Access to online courses and instructors
- Selected course ebooks and learning materials
- Registrar Services & Student Advisors
Complete at least one course per term, more if you wish. You will be responsible to purchase some of the required resources from vendors of your choice.
Wilson University does not participate in Title IV funding. Students may be eligible for Tuition Reimbursement through their employer. It is the student’s responsibility to research Tuition Reimbursement availability through their place of employment.
The Student understands that if a separate party is financing his/her education, that the Student, and the Student alone, is directly responsible for all payments and monies owed to the school listed on this agreement.
WITHDRAWAL FROM THE PROGRAM
Students who wish to withdraw from an online program will need to coordinate with their Wilson University Coach to submit a withdrawal request. Please note that withdrawing may mean any unpaid tuition and fees are due immediately per the Refund Policy. Also, withdrawals may be subject to certain fees and payments. For more information contact your Coach at 916-681-2768.
STUDENT’S RIGHT TO CANCEL
The program in which you are enrolling is distance education-not offered in real time. The institution will transmit the first lesson and materials to you electronically within seven days after the institution accepts the student for admission.
The student has the right to cancel and obtain a refund of charges paid through attendance at the first class session, or the seventh day after enrollment, whichever is later. To cancel or withdraw, the student must coordinate with their Wilson University Coach to submit a withdrawal request. The cancellation or withdrawal is effective on the date selected in the withdrawal request once submitted and approved by the Registrar. The institution shall make the refund pursuant to section 71750 of the California Education Regulations.
Cancellation is effective on the date the written notice of cancellation is sent to the institution at Wilson University, P O Box 2796, Elk Grove, CA 95759 or email@example.com. Refunds will be paid within 45 days of cancellation unless the cancellation occurs after the institution has provided the first lesson and materials, but prior to your receipt of those documents, in such cases the institution shall make the refund within 45 days after your return of the materials.
If the student cancels an enrollment agreement, withdraws or is administratively withdrawn during a period of attendance, the refund policy for students who have completed 60 percent or less of the period of attendance shall be a pro rata refund. A pro rata refund pursuant to section 94919(c) or 94920(d) or 94927 of the California Education code shall be no less than the total amount owed by the student for the portion of the educational program provided subtracted from the amount paid by the student, calculated as follows: The amount owed equals the daily charge for the program (total institutional charge, divided by the number of days or hours in the program), multiplied by the number of days student attended, or was scheduled to attend, prior to withdrawal.
For purposes of determining a refund, a student shall be considered to have withdrawn from an educational program when he or she withdraws or is deemed withdrawn in
accordance with the withdrawal policy stated in this institution’s catalog. Students who withdraw or are administratively withdrawn will receive a refund of tuition according to the following table.

Wilson University’s refund policy meets or exceeds the regulations of the Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education (BPPE). BPPE’s regulations state:
A pro rata refund pursuant to section 94919(c) or 94920(d) or 94927 of the code shall be no less than the total amount owed by the student for the portion of the educational program provided subtracted from the amount paid by the student, calculated as follows: The amount owed equals the daily charge for the program (total institutional charge, divided by the number of days or hours in the program), multiplied by the number of days student attended, or was scheduled to attend, prior to withdrawal.
For purposes of determining a refund, a student shall be considered withdrawn when they withdraw or are deemed withdrawn in accordance with the university’s withdrawal policy stated herein.
If an institution has collected money from a student for transmittal on the student’s behalf to a third party for a bond, library usage, or fees for a license, application, or examination, and the institution has not paid the money to the third party at the time of the student’s withdrawal or cancellation, the institution shall refund the money to the student within 45 days of the student’s withdrawal or cancellation. The institution shall refund any credit balance on the student’s account within 45 days after the date of the student’s completion of, or withdrawal from, the educational program in which the student was enrolled.

Wilson University reserves the right to restrict access to student’s coursework if they are enrolled in an active course with a past-due invoice of 7 days or longer. The student account will remain on Restricted Access (RA) until payment arrangements have been made. Payment arrangements can either be full payment of all past-due amounts or a mutually agreeable payment plan. The student still owes the full balance of their contract regardless of any alternative payment arrangements that have been made.
It is Wilson University’s policy that students’ financial accounts must be current. If difficulties arise, the student is responsible for making the appropriate arrangements with the Wilson University Student Account’s Office. Anna Ballinger, the WU Student Account Coordinator can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org. Students who fail to complete satisfactory arrangements or who default on their financial arrangements are subject to financial probation.
Students who have a past-due balance on their account at the end of their contract will be placed on Financial Probation, which means they will lose access to coursework, future registrations, graduation clearance, and transcripts. Students are notified via email when payment attempts are declined and when they are placed on Financial Probation. Once a student is placed on Financial Probation, they have 7 days to settle his/her balance or make payment arrangements to do so. Failure to do so will result in Administrative Withdrawal from the university. Students who are withdrawn in this fashion will need to settle their account before re-enrolling. If the past-due balance is cleared within 7 days, a student will be removed from Financial Probation and may register immediately for a new course or resume a course. Students establishing a payment plan instead will not be withdrawn, but their accounts will be put on hold and they cannot register for a new course. If any of the scheduled payments in the agreed-upon payment plan are missed or declined, the student will be immediately withdrawn. As soon as the balance is clear, students may register for a new course.
