Prepayments of Tuition (including the US$7000 Tuition Deposit for Nigerian Applicants)
Applicants who wish to receive a refund of a tuition prepayment must return their unused I-20 with a letter requesting a refund. We will only accept a signed request from the applicant in order to refund a tuition prepayment. We cannot accept refund requests by e-mail or fax. Please note that refunds may take up to 90 days to process.
The US$50 Undergraduate Application Fee (US$65 Undergraduate Application Fee Starting Fall 2012)
The undergraduate application fee is not refundable - even if the applicant is not accepted for admission.
If an applicant qualifies for a refund, the money will be sent as follows:
1) If the original payment was made by credit card, the refund will be credited to the same credit card.
2) If the original payment was made by any method other than credit card, the refund will be returned by Western Union to the student who applied for admission (regardless of who actually paid the money). The Western Union service charge, which varies according to the amount sent by Western Union, will be deducted from the total amount of your refund. After the refund has been sent by Western Union, the student will be sent an email with the Money Transfer Control Number. There are more than 245,000 Western Union locations in over 200 countries worldwide. To find the nearest Western Union location, please visit: http://www.westernunion.com
IMPORTANT NOTE: Students are NOT required to pay their tuition and fees before coming to Wcihita. However, some students elect to make a prepayment. If you decide to make a payment in advance, it will be used to pay for WSU tuition, fees, on-campus housing, and medical insurance purchased through the University. No portion of your prepayment will be refunded to you to pay for books, off-campus housing, personal expenses, medical insurance purchased off-campus, etc. For this reason, you should bring extra money to pay for these expenses. If the amount of your prepayment exceeds the amount you owe, any extra amount will be applied to your next semester's tuition.
