Paying for your DWU education
Students are billed each semester. Statements are sent to the students in the summer for the fall semester and in December for the spring semester.
Payment for a student’s total balance for the current semester is due by the end of the second week of classes, unless a monthly payment plan has been established with the business office. A finance charge of 1% per month will be charged to all past due accounts. Students with unpaid accounts who have not made arrangements with the business office will not be allowed to continue taking classes.
If you have any questions concerning your billing statement, account or financial standing, contact Carol Weiss at (605) 995-2693.
Payments may be made in person at the Business Office or mailed to:
Dakota Wesleyan University
1200 W. University Ave.
Mitchell, SD 57301
Credit Card Payment
Payments by Visa, MasterCard, and Discover cards are accepted at the Business Office. To make a credit card payment by telephone, contact Carol Weiss at (605) 995-2693. To make a credit card payment online go to TigerNet, sign in, and proceed to the "Student Finances" tab.
Dakota Wesleyan provides students/parents with ACH (automatic clearing house) in order to assist with the payment of tuition accounts. DWU will automatically deduct your monthly payments from either a parent or student’s checking/savings account on the 15th of each month. The fee to enroll on this plan is $25 per semester and must be paid upon signing the ACH agreement. However, if you enroll in the tuition financing plan before August, DWU will waive the $25 enrollment fee.
If a student does not enroll in ACH they must enroll on the Dakota Wesleyan Tuition Financing Plan. The student must pay the $25 enrollment fee at the time of finalization. A payment is due each month and the outstanding balance at the end of each month will be charged 12% per annum interest.
Third Party Payments
If a third party (employer or VA) will be assisting you with the payment of your balance, you must notify the business office by the first week of classes.
