Winthrop University: Office of Admissions - Enrollment Fee/Admissions Deposit Instructions

Enrollment Fee/Admissions Deposit Instructions

An enrollment fee of $300 is required to reserve a space in the fall entering class for most students (refer to your letter of admission). The fee is non-refundable, so you are strongly encouraged to submit it only after you have confirmed your plans to enroll at Winthrop.  Please contact your admissions counselor if you wish to request an extension.

If you wish to submit your enrollment fee by check or money order, submit payment with the card and envelope that were enclosed with your letter of admission to ensure that the money is credited to the correct account. If you misplaced your card, you can print one from our web site at /Admissions/Accepted_Students/EnrollmentFeeCard.pdf.
