Payment Options

Students enrolling in courses at CWI incur a debt to the College upon registration. Payment in full or satisfactory payment arrangements for each semester are due on the payment due date published in the official academic calendar each semester.

Students are responsible for withdrawing from classes they do not intend to complete.  If you do not withdraw before the 100% refund deadline, you are liable for all charges whether you attended the class or not.

It is also the student’s responsibility to check their CWI email account for important information.
Delinquent account balances will be turned over to a collection agency. Any fees associated with the collection of the debt are the responsibility of the student.

Note: If you owe a prior semester balance, a hold will be placed on your account restricting registration for a future semester. If you are already registered for a future semester, you may be administratively dropped from those classes.
