Tuition Payment

Iowa Wesleyan University supports a variety of tuition programs and payment arrangements for our students.

Financial Aid

Financial Aid is available for students who qualify. You must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and all other required documents to apply for federal student grants and loans. Financial Aid advisors are available to assist you with your questions.

Military Tuition Assistance and Veterans Benefits

Iowa Wesleyan supports our service members and veterans by processing their tuition assistance and veteran’s benefits.

Employer Tuition Benefit Programs

Employer reimbursement: If your employer offers company reimbursement, Iowa Wesleyan can bill your company directly. We will require a letter from your employer (on company letterhead) prior to your first class. The letter must state your tuition benefits are available to you, and where we send the invoice.

If your employer offers reimbursement to the employee after the final grade is issued, you may use the payment plan option and follow the guidance for employer reimbursement.

Note: If for any reason your employer does not pay for 100% of the tuition charges, the student is responsible for full payment.

Payment Plans

For those who are unable to pay tuition in full prior to the term start date, Iowa Wesleyan offers payment plan options. The standard payment plan allows payment over two months for each 8-week term. Students may request the payment plans through the Business Office.


We pride ourselves on offering affordable tuition and a variety of payment options. If you choose to make payments on your own you may be eligible for our payment plan option, which allows you to pay 50% of your tuition bill before the first day of the term, and the remaining balance 30 days into the term. If your financial situation changes we’ll work with you to update your payment preference. (Though some restrictions on payment process may apply.)

Methods of Payment

We make paying your balance fast and easy. All payments may be completed using the following methods:

  • MasterCard
  • Visa
  • Discover
  • American Express
  • Electronic payment from your checking/savings account *

You can also pay by check, money order, or with cash. Check or money order payments by mail must be received by the due date.

Make checks and money orders payable to Iowa Wesleyan University, and send to:

Iowa Wesleyan University
Students Accounts
601 N. Main Street
Mount Pleasant, IA  52641

All financial obligations to the University must be paid in full or satisfactory payment arrangements made with the Business Office before a student may register for a new semester.

Refund Policy

Refunds of credit balances will be available only after an account has been paid in full. Refunds are made the week after the add/drop date at the beginning of each semester. Any credit balances associated with payment by personal check will be delayed until the check used for payment has cleared the bank. Normally ten business days will be allowed for such clearance.

Financial Impact of Withdrawal from Classes

Students who withdraw from one or more classes following the end of the add/drop period at the start of each semester will have their tuition and financial aid recalculated. Under certain scenarios, students may be responsible for paying additional charges. Calculations of these amounts are made in accordance with federal and state financial aid regulations and are based on the date of withdrawal and the University’s obligation to return federal financial aid funds. Students are responsible for meeting their financial obligations upon withdrawal and are encouraged to check with the Financial Aid office prior to withdrawal to determine what the financial impact will be.
