Payment and Financing Options

Washington University provides some simple, innovative payment and financing programs designed to help you manage your investment in your student's college education. 
Partners in Education with Parents (PEP)
Since 1978, Washington University has been a pioneer in developing creative payment choices for parents. Our PEP program is financed and managed by the University. We work closely with our students and their families to continually improve these offerings and provide what we believe are the most attractive set of payment options in American higher education.  Learn More
Installment Payment Plan
The Installment Payment Plan allows students and their families to spread all or part of a single academic year's expenses into convenient monthly payments. Each month, you may send a check or arrange to have payments automatically deducted from your account. There is an enrollment fee for each semester. This monthly payment plan can be combined with any of the low-interest financing options.  Learn More
Standard Billing
The fall semester billing statement will be available in WebSTAC beginning July 1, 2019. The due date is August 20, 2019. The spring semester billing statement will be available beginning December 2, 2019, with a due date of January 20, 2020. Students may view and pay billing statements online via WebSTAC.  Learn More
Other financing options include the Federal Parent PLUS Loan and Federal Direct Student Loan (Unsubsidized). Through the federal government's PLUS program, parents can borrow up to the student's cost of education less other financial aid awarded to the student. Annual limits apply with the federal Direct Student Loan program.   Learn More
