Forms, invoices, and receipts can be submitted to the Business Office via:

  • Inter-office mail dropped off at the Mail Center (Attn: Business Office,  Luther Hall 212)
  • U.S. Postal Service (Wartburg College Attn: Business Office  100 Wartburg Blvd.  Waverly, IA 50677)

Graduate student billing is for tuition only unless the student will be living on campus, in which case room and board charges will be applied. Students in master’s degree programs can apply for federal loans. Please contact the Financial Aid Office if you plan to apply for these loans.

Students are billed monthly around the 15th and payments are due the following month around the 10th. There are exceptions to these dates for Flywire (1) users who prefer a monthly interest‐free payment plan. Once the payment plan has been established, payments are withdrawn automatically from the specified account. Students can view their monthly billing statements within My.Wartburg via CASHnet (2). Students will receive notification to their Wartburg email when monthly statements are ready to view. Paper bills are not mailed.

Students in the Graduate Leadership Certificate and Master of Arts in Leadership will begin their coursework in the summer.  Wartburg does allow for payment options during the summer term.  Your first bill will be generated approximately June 15.  You will have an option of paying the full amount in July or dividing the payments between July and August without finance charges.  For those who will be utilizing the monthly payment plan (Flywire) for Fall Term, it will be important to have your summer balance paid by July 24; otherwise, the summer balance will be automatically included with the fall tuition as part of the payment plan resulting in higher fall payments. Also, please note tuition charges cannot be delayed due to employer reimbursement.

Two Payment Options

1. Flywire – Monthly E-payment Plan
Wartburg College has partnered with Flywire to provide students a secure and easy way to set up an interest‐free monthly e-payment plan. This payment plan is designed to help families spread out the remaining balance due into three‐five equal payments per term. There will be a $30 non‐refundable setup fee per plan. Students can add an authorized user (such as a parent/guardian) to the plan. Enrollment will open mid‐July for Fall Term, with payments due August 5 – December 5, and then open again mid‐December for Winter/May terms, with payments due January 5 – May 5. Once enrollment opens for the term, emails with sign‐up information, will be sent to students. Finance charges are waived for the duration of the payment plan period. If the student account cannot be paid in full by the due date of each term, and/or paid with a loan, it is strongly suggested that you consider the monthly payment plan.

2. CASHnet
Wartburg College’s online billing and payment system. It allows students to view billing statements and make electronic payments via credit/debit card and electronic check (ACH).

A student’s billing account is the responsibility of the student, and all billing communications are addressed accordingly. It is important to review and understand the information that appears on your student billing statement to make accurate, on-time payments.

There are two ways to view your student billing statement:

  • My.Wartburg.edu – This statement displays current student billing activity to-date.
  • CASHNet – This statement is static and displays student billing activity only for a set billing period.
