Tuition & Financial Aid
Your financial obligations.
It is your responsibility as a student to make the necessary arrangements to meet your tuition obligations by the stated deadlines. If you are an incoming student, your program start date can be delayed if you do not meet the 22nd deadline.
The most important word here is "loan." If you accept federal financial aid in the form of either a subsidized or unsubsidized Federal Direct Loan, it is a loan. You will be required to repay this loan once you have completed your degree program. Even if you withdraw from WGU, you will be required to pay back any loan funds you borrow. Before you apply for aid, consider how you plan to repay the loans. Interest rates are currently modest, and repayment terms are reasonable. But you must be prepared to repay it whether you graduate or not.
"I was able to go through my courses at my own pace and with a flat-rate of tuition per semester. My wallet enjoyed it too! I managed to pay WGU tuition out of pocket and didn't rack up any additional debt." Sarah Benson
