Easy payments are a smart way to budget and pay your tuition.

We understand family finances and the challenges of paying educational expenses. It’s not always easy to pay everything at once, so we offer tuition options, including an interest-free monthly payment plan.

The Wingate University payment plan spreads your tuition over eight equal monthly payments (four payments per semester), making it easier to fit tuition payments into the family budget. A small annual fee of $75 is required to enroll in the program.

You’ll enjoy peace of mind knowing that the payment process is safe and secure. That lets you focus on more important things, such as enjoying life as a Wingate University student.
