  • If your balance is zero or your financial aid is greater than your balance due, you may use online validation. PLEASE NOTE: If you owe a balance, please do not use this feature. Your schedule will be validated by the Cashiers Office when you make your payment.
  • Return the bottom portion of your bill to the Cashiers Office by the fee payment deadline.


FAQ question When do I make my first payment under the Winthrop Payment Plan if I register online?  
FAQ Answer

The payment is due by the fee payment deadline of December 11th and must be received in the Cashiers Office before your registration can be validated. Once your payment is received, your schedule will be validated automatically.  You can check your validation status online in Wingspan under the Registration Menu.


FAQ question When will I get my refund?
FAQ Answer Refund processing for Spring term will begin on Tuesday,January 6, 2015. Refunds take 2-3 business days to process. Direct deposits should be received by your bank account within the 2-3 day window. Refunds will be deposited directly into a students' bank account if they have signed up for direct deposit through Wingspan. If the student did not sign up for direct deposit, checks will be mailed directly to the student's permanent address. Checks should be received within 7-10 business days. 

REMINDER: Financial aid eligibility changes when enrollment status changes. Your original award was determined using the enrollment status (full time, three quarter, etc.) you reported on your FAFSA. If your enrollment status at Winthrop drops below the anticipated status you provided on the FAFSA during the period of time allotted for course changes, your aid may be reduced. Should this occur, you will be responsible for repaying a portion of your refund to Winthrop, if applicable.


FAQ question Will my refund be processed on January 6th if I am a student athlete?
