Tuition Payments

Payment for classes is due with registration. GLS students are bound by Wesleyan University's Student Account Agreement as described in the GLS Student Account Agreement and Disclosure Statement.

Payment Options:

Standard Payment:

Students are expected to register online and must pay all charges online at the time of registration. The GLS accepts Visa, MasterCard, e-check or monthly payment plan.

Employer pays Tuition:

Students whose employer pays tuition and fees directly to Wesleyan University must contact Mary Kelly at the GLS office before registering for courses.

Payment with Student Loans:

Students paying tuition and course fees with student loans must pay the $100 non-refundable registration fee upon registration and have completed the loan application process as defined by the University's Office of Financial Aid prior to registering. Students must contact Mary Kelly at the GLS office before registering for courses. Students must complete entrance counseling and return Master Promissory Note to Financial Aid within 5 business days of the 100% tuition refund deadline.

Payment Plan:

Graduate Liberal Studies has partnered with Tuition Management Systems (TMS) to offer a 3-month payment plan. Payment in full is still due upon registration, but completed enrollment in the payment plan is considered payment in full for purposes of registration.

  • Payments to TMS are made through ACH transfer only.
  • Payments are made in 3 equal installments.
