Payment Information

Paying For Your DWU Education

We believe that higher education is an essential investment, and we do all we can to make attending DWU a financial possibility for every student who wants to come here.

With that in mind, please note that we bill our students each semester. Your statement will be sent in the summer for the fall semester and in December for the spring semester.

Your 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 our business office.


Different Ways to Pay

We have a few convenient ways you can pay your tuition:

With a check:

You can pay by check in person at the business office, or mail it to:

Business Office
Dakota Wesleyan University
1200 W. University Ave.
Mitchell, SD 57301

With a credit card:

We accept Visa, MasterCard, and Discover cards. You can do this in person at the business office or by telephone: contact Kerri Fahey. If you’d rather pay online, go to TigerNet, sign in, and proceed to the "Student Finances" tab.

With an ACH payment plan:

We offer students/parents the option of ACH (automatic clearing house) in order to assist with the payment of tuition accounts. We will automatically deduct your monthly payments from either a parent or student’s checking/savings account or place it on a debit/credit card on the designated date each month. There is an enrollment fee of $25 per semester which must be paid when you sign the ACH agreement. However, if you enroll in the tuition financing plan before August, we will waive that fee.

If you want to enroll in the ACH plan, please complete the ACH Payment form and return it to the business office. If you have any questions about it, please contact Kerri Fahey.

With the Dakota Wesleyan Tuition Financing Plan:

If you do not enroll in ACH, you must enroll on the Dakota Wesleyan Tuition Financing Plan and 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 (such as your employer or the VA) will be assisting you with the payment of your balance, please notify the business office by the first week of classes.


Past Due Accounts

There is a finance charge of 1% per month on all past due accounts. If you have an unpaid account and haven’t made arrangements with the business office, you will not be allowed to continue taking classes.



If you have any questions about your billing statement, account or financial standing, please call Kerri Fahey.
