There are many reasons you might accrue an unpaid balance:
- Financial aid was reduced or reversed due to not attending class(es), not maintaining satisfactory academic progress, or return of Title IV refund
- Payment plan is in default
- Third-party payment was reversed
- Added classes after 100% drop deadline that were not paid for or dropped
- Withdrew from classes after 100% drop deadline
Your unpaid balance will not disappear. If you fail to pay your student account bill or any money you owe by the scheduled due date, AND you fail to make acceptable payment arrangements to bring your account current, we may refer your delinquent account to a collection agency. Your delinquent account may be reported to one or more of the national credit bureaus.
Don’t let this happen to you! If you find yourself in with an unpaid balance, take action and follow the steps necessary to resolve it:
Make an appointment with a collections specialist at WCC. Bring sufficient funds for a down payment of at least 50% of your balance. We accept cash, money orders, or credit cards.
Set up a repayment plan and stick with it. As long as you have an unpaid balance, you may not be able to register or get transcripts at WCC. We will work with you to tailor a plan to your resources. You may have to sit out 1 or 2 semesters depending on your balance.
Contact the Financial Aid office if your balance is caused by a reduction or reversal of financial aid.
