Changing Payment Plan Options

The Primary Payment Plan Option may be changed while attending the Warner Pacific University Professional and Graduate Studies provided the student account is in good standing. In order to change plans, the student must contact the Office of Student Financial Services and complete the appropriate financial agreement. All changes must be approved by Warner Pacific University.

Late Fees

Unpaid balances are subject to a 1.5% service charge each month the balance remains unpaid. To avoid late fees, payments must be made by the first day each course starts. This applies to any balance not covered by a Financial Aid, Tuition Deferment, or a Direct Billing Plan.

Returned Check/Credit Card Fees

All returned checks or credit cards are assessed an additional $25 processing fee. If the account is delinquent when the check or credit card is returned, service charges plus a declined credit card or returned check fee will be charged to the student’s account. Warner Pacific University reserves the right to charge returned check or credit card fees and service charges at any time.

Failure to Pay

Failure to complete payment of tuition and fees by the specified due date may result in administrative withdrawal from the program beginning with the student’s next scheduled course. Students administratively withdrawn from the University for financial reasons are responsible for paying their account in full before they may be re-admitted.

Requesting Financial Aid Excess Funds

If your financial aid award exceeds your cost of tuition, fees, and books, you may be eligible to receive excess funds. Check your student account three weeks after you begin classes in the term to see if funds have posted to your student account. If funds have posted to your account, Student Financial Services will audit your account and automatically refund excess funds within 14 days of the funds being posted. Refunds will be directly deposited to your bank account (look for an email from a few days after your financial aid has been posted to set up your direct deposit information), or a check will be mailed to the address on record. Please allow the full 14 days for processing before calling to check the status of your refund.

 PLEASE NOTE: All refunds are an estimated amount. Changes to the cost of books, withdrawing, dropping, or adding classes after you have received your excess funds may create a balance due to Warner Pacific University.

Grade Release

Grades are released for paid courses only (exceptions may be made for Tuition Deferred Students), and only if an academic degree plan has been completed with the student’s academic advisor before the end of the second course in the student’s program. Transcripts are not issued until the student’s account has been cleared.


Withdrawing from a course may result in a student owed balance payable to Warner Pacific University. Please refer to the Attendance Policy in the Adult Degree Program Bulletin and in the course syllabus.

Note: Withdrawing from a course or changing the academic calendar may reduce or eliminate a financial aid award. Please consulawith an Professional and Graduate Studies academic advisor and Financial Aid Counselor prior to withdrawing from courses.

Textbook Policy

Warner Pacific University is committed to making a university education as accessible and affordable as possible. In addition to keeping tuition and fees low, the university is committed to keeping the cost of textbooks and instructional materials affordable while simultaneously ensuring that students in the accelerated adult learning program have dependable and timely access to those materials.

In order to provide Professional and Graduate Studies (PGS) students with maximum dependability and affordable choices, WPU has chosen to partner with Tree of Life Bookstores. The partnership with Tree of Life allows for two important things: (1) students receive the correct books, on time, automatically, and (2) students may select purchasing options that allow them to better manage their financial resources.

Because the PGS is an accelerated degree program (courses run on a continuous cycle, two to seven weeks at a time, as contrasted with a 15-week traditional semester), having the correct textbooks and materials in time to prepare for class is of critical importance. Students who do not have the appropriate materials before class quickly fall behind, negatively impacting their odds for success and potentially that of their learning team. In addition, Tree of Life offers auto-fulfillment, meaning that the book order is triggered by course registration, and therefore students are not required to do anything after registration (assuming they have established their preferences) in order to have the books shipped directly to them, in time for class.

Partnering with Tree of Life also provides better financial control to students. Tree of Life is able to provide students with competitive pricing on new books but also provides lower-cost used book and rental options. Students may review their options and make informed decisions about the kinds of books they will purchase through Tree of Life’s comprehensive website ( (Note that Tree of Life makes every effort to honor those preferences, but due to fluctuations in the supply, fulfilling preferences is not always guaranteed.) More information is also available through Tree of Life’s customer service line (1.888.392.2930). PGS admission counselors and/or academic advisors are available to assist with other questions.

Students who believe they have extenuating circumstances that warrant an exception to the textbook policy should appeal to the Office of the Associate Vice President for Academic Affairs.
