Frequently Asked Questions


1. Why am I being directed to the WVU Office of Student Accounts in Morgantown?

As a division of West Virginia University, WVU Tech’s billing is administered by the Office of Student Accounts on the WVU main campus in Morgantown. The WVU Tech Business Office is available to assist students, parents and other authorized individuals with a range of services including collecting and processing payments, providing information about student account balances and payment schedule deadlines.

2. When is the payment deadline?

Fall 2016 tuition and fees are due in full by Wednesday, July 27, 2016 and August 17, 2016 (First Day of Classes) for students who register after July 27, 2016.

3. Does WVU offer a payment plan?

Yes! Tuition Pay is an interest free, monthly payment plan offered through Higher One. Students can enroll in either a 3 month payment plan (Summer), 5 month payment plan (One Semester) or a 10 month payment plan (Two Semesters/Academic Year). For more details or to enroll in Tuition Pay, visit http://studentaccounts.wvu.edu/tuition-payment-plan

4. Why have I not received a bill?

The Office of Student Accounts does not mail paper bills to students. Students’ bills must be viewed electronically through STAR. Email notifications about account balances are sent to students’ MIX email address.

5. I’m a parent - how do I know when something is due on my child’s account?

Students may add up to two eBill email addresses in STAR. This will allow parents or other authorized individuals to receive an electronic carbon-copy of any billing notification sent to the student’s MIX email. Simply select “Update Student & Parent E-Mail Addresses” under the “Personal Information” on the STAR system.

6. If I make any changes to my class schedule, when will that be updated on STAR?

Changes to your schedule will automatically be reflected on under “Electronic Bill by Term.” Financial aid, however, will not be automatically adjusted. If you are dropping below full-time hours or have any significant changes to your student status, please notify the Financial Aid Office so that your aid package can be adjusted accordingly.

7. When will my statement be available to view on STAR?

Your account details will be available to view via the student portal on July 5, 2016.

8. Can I purchase my textbooks using financial aid?

If your financial aid exceeds your charges for the term, you can use financial aid to purchase textbooks by signing up through the STAR system. For instructions and program deadlines, please visit http://studentaccounts.wvu.edu/bookstore_programs

9. What should I do if the financial aid and/or scholarships I am supposed to receive are not noted on my account?

Please contact a WVU Tech financial aid counselor in the Financial Aid Office located in 205 Old Main (304-442-3228) to inquire about your Financial Aid and scholarships. As payment deadlines approach, it is best to go in person to discuss matters with a counselor.

10. What will happen if my bill is not paid by July 27 payment deadline?

Students who have not paid their Fall 2016 tution and fees in full by Wednesday, July 27th will incur a 1.5% late fee on outstanding tuition and fees equal to and/or greater than $200.
