CGCE Student Delayed Payment Form
Westfield State University
College of Graduate and Continuing Education
Westfield State University offers a program for matriculated students that allows for payment of tuition over a period of time during the semester. Students must meet the following requirements:
- Matriculation in a degree or certification program through CGCE.
- Payment of the application fee (non-refundable).
- Ability to pay total tuition and fees by published due dates.
Students must follow all regulations regarding withdrawals as stated in the College’s refund policy, and are responsible for total payment even if they withdraw before the end of the semester and regardless of grade. No student may apply for delayed payment who has been sent to a collection agent or placed in Administrative Withdrawal.
Students must complete the application and have it approved before they may register into courses. The application must be completed each semester. There is a late payment penalty charge if bills are not paid in full by the date of the final payment. Any account sent to collection is charged a 20% collection fee.
Instructions to apply: All students wishing to apply for the delayed payment plan must complete this application form each semester. A delayed payment fee of $100 is payable upon application and is non-refundable. After CGCE reviews the application, an email of approval/denial is sent to the student for the registration process. The application must be approved prior to registration. Please note: If your request for delayed payment is resulting from the effects of the COVID 19 pandemic, please explain and supply any relevant documentation in the “Explain Here” text box below. (Example – Loss of employment or reduced working hours for student or family member.) CGCE, on an individual basis, may choose to reduce or eliminate the $100 fee if application is approved.
Application deadlines are the first day of the term.
