Business Office

Wayland Baptist University utilizes Higher One (CashNet) for student payments on accounts. With this service, we no longer accept credit or debit payments made in person or over the phone. Cash and checks are still accepted in person at the campus Business Office, or checks accepted by mail. Students wishing to utilize a credit or debit card for payment on their student account will need to log on at MyWBU to make their payment. Please be aware that Higher One (CashNet) assesses a 2.75% non-refundable processing fee for credit and debit card payments. No fee is assessed for payments online utilizing an electronic check.

Payment Options:

Two-part payment plan

A $25.00 payment plan fee will apply to all payment plans. The university payment plan requires a minimum of 1/2 payment of expenses (after guaranteed financial aid) by the first day of class. The second payment is due one month after the first day of the term and prior to registration for the next term. If your employer, the VA, or tuition assistance pays part of your tuition, the two payment amounts are adjusted accordingly. You may incur a $50.00 late fee added to the amount due if you fail to make timely payments.

Employer Assistance

  • Check with your employer to see if your company has a tuition assistance or reimbursement program. If your company pays Wayland directly, regardless of your grades or whether or not you complete the course, you may register with a voucher. If they reimburse you after you submit your grades, you will need to pay Wayland when you register.
