Westfield State University offers an Installment Payment Plan to assist families in paying billed expenses. Administered by the Student Accounts office, the Installment Payment Plan allows families to spread each semester’s balance due over four monthly payments.
The Financial Aid Office encourages families who plan to borrow for a balance due to consider also joining the payment plan in order to reduce the amount borrowed. A family who participates in the payment plan at the minimum level, every semester, for four years, has avoided $8,000 in parent and/or student debt. The financial aid process assumes that families fund higher education from past, current, and future earnings. Participation in the Installment Payment Plan is one way to put current income to work funding education.
Questions about the payment plan should be directed to the Student Accounts office at 413-572-8538, option 1.
