  • eCheck (available online only): No service fee is charged for this option. You will need to provide your bank’s routing number and your checking or savings account number. If you have questions regarding the correct numbers to use, please contact your financial institution. 
  • Credit Card (available online): A service fee of 2.85% is added to the total payment. This is a fee charged by our payment processor; Ohio Wesleyan University does not receive this additional fee. MasterCard, Visa, Discover and American Express are accepted.
  • Wire payment – International (online): Ohio Wesleyan University has partnered with Flywire to provide our international students with an easy and secure method to send international payments in your home currency.  Click here for the OWU Flywire link 

o    Flywire allows you to:

§  Pay from almost any country and any bank

§  Avoid unexpected bank fees and ensure the best exchange rate with Flywire’s Best Price Guarantee

§  Track your payments from start to finish

§  Have access to dedicated multilingual customer support

  • Wire payment – Domestic: You can also send a domestic wire transfer.  Please email for more information.        
  • 529 College Savings Plan: Payments should be initiated through your College Savings Plan provider at least two weeks before any payment due date. Many times, OWU will receive 529 payments on behalf of a student in the form of a paper check through the postal service. OWU has no control over transit time, so initiating 529 payments as soon as possible is highly encouraged. It is not unusual for the payment to arrive later than our due date; this is perfectly okay.  Let us know before the semester starts that you will be using a 529 plan and we will note your file so you do not incur any service fees.  Your payment MUST include the students ID number and first and last name.

Additonal Payment Info

Financial Aid:  Financial aid will be applied to your student account if you have qualified for assistance and have completed the requirements of the aid. If you are expecting financial aid and your account does not have an award listed, please contact the Office of Financial Aid at 740.368.3050.
Third Party Sponsored Students:  If your tuition and fees will be either partially or fully paid by a third-party sponsoring organization (your company, the military, or other sponsor), you must provide tuition assistance forms or other billing authorization.  Additional information may be found on our Veterans page and HR Tuition Benefit Program page.

Payment Plans: In efforts to assist our enrolled students in meeting financial obligations, we offer a semester based payment plan as an alternative for those who are not paying their tuition and fees in full by the first due date. Students who wish to enroll may do so by logging into their Self Service and selecting `Make a Payment'. From here, you will be logged into the Nelnet Payment Portal site and you will click 'Set Up a Payment Plan'.  Authorized users may also enroll through the Authorized User Portal. Additional information can be found through the step by step instructions here.
