Accessing WU-View

In order to access WU-View, our online payment system, students must first activate their MyWashburn account. If you are already able to sign into MyWashburn, your account has been activated. If you have not activated your MyWashburn account, follow the instructions below.  

  • Students are automatically assigned a MyWashburn account when they are admitted to the University.
  • MyWashburn provides secure access to self-service Banner functions, Desire2Learn, and other resources.
  • Students will receive an email from Information Technology Services at the personal email address they provided when they were admitted to Washburn.
  • This email will contain instructions about how to access IT resources at Washburn.

Once MyWashburn access is granted, students can sign in, go to the Financial Services tab, then click on the blue WU-View button to be directed to the payment portal. Current and admitted students can use the link below to sign into MyWashburn.  Former students (away for more than one year) or authorized users must use the other labeled links to reach their access pages.

Once activated, in WU-View you can....

From the home page, click on "View Activity" and select the term you wish to view. For more detail, expand the information by clicking on the arrow keys for each line of activity. You can also view and print by term for a record of all charges and payments to your account, or download into an Excel file. Another way to access current activity is by going to "My Account" then "Current Activity".
Electronic bills (also called eBills or eStatements) are periodically generated and available for viewing and/or printing. Go to "My Account" then "Statements" and select the statement you wish to view.

The most convenient way to pay online is with a debit card.  There is no waiting for account validation, no service fee is charged by the processor, and a Business Office hold can be lifted if the balance is paid in full.  For debit card transactions, please note that daily transaction limits on your bank account may restrict the amount that can be paid.  Contact your bank to increase your daily limit if you feel the transaction will exceed your limit.  Debit cards can only be used for online payments if a Visa or Mastercard logo is on the front of the card.

Electronic checks (webchecks) can also be used without a service fee, but holds will not be lifted for 7 to 10 days to allow time for the payment to clear the bank. Beginning in March 2021, a payment made from a newly entered checking account will require ACH validation from the bank before it can be used for payment. This will delay the ability to make the initial webcheck payment by approximately a week. Keep this in mind when planning to use checking accounts for payments and set up the account early enough for the validation to process. This change will not affect checking accounts set up as a saved payment method prior to March 2021 or those accounts that have been validated.

Online credit card payments run through a separate payment processor, PayPath.  Keep in mind that all credit card payments will incur a 2.85% convenience fee (minimum $3.00) charged by the processor.  View the Credit Card Policy for more information regarding online payments.

Click on the "Making a Payment" page for more payment options.

Students can pay housing or law seat deposits by signing into MyWashburn, going to the Financial Services tab, and clicking on the blue WU-View button.  From there, go to the Deposits tab (on the menu across the top), select the term, select the deposit type, and follow the instructions for payment.  Deposits can be paid with a debit card or credit card without an additional convenience fee.  Deposits paid by webcheck will require a validation period for any payment made from a newly entered or updated bank account.

A term-based payment plan allows term charges to be spread out over three or four payments (two or three in Summer), as well an option for setting up automatic payments from a bank account (webcheck or signature debit card) or credit card (convenience fees will apply). Go to the Payment Plans menu to see all plans currently available.

Step-by-step instructions

Refunds to the student account can be automatically deposited to a bank account, avoiding the need to come to the cashier window to pick up a check. From the home page, go to the "Electronic Refunds" link on the right to set up an account for direct deposit.

Students must set up the direct deposit account.  Authorized users cannot set up a direct deposit account on behalf of the student.

Starting in March 2021, a direct deposit to a newly entered bank account will require ACH validation from the bank before funds can be sent there. This will delay the ability to use the account for direct deposit by approximately a week. Keep this in mind when planning to set up a direct deposit account and set the account up early enough for the validation to process before the refund is generated. This change will not affect checking accounts set up as a direct deposit account or a saved payment method prior to March 2021 or those accounts that have been validated.

Direct Deposit through WU-View

Students can grant permission for parents and others to view their account information, set up payment plans on behalf of the student, and pay the student’s bill. The Business Office uses this authorization to satisfy the FERPA requirement for student permission to discuss account questions with persons other than the student. From the home page, go to the "Authorized Users" link on the right to set up or remove an authorized user.

Step-by-step instructions

Students and Authorized Users can save payment information for ease of later use. From the home page, go to the "Payment Profile" link on the right to set up or remove a saved payment method.

For debit card transactions, please note that daily transaction limits on your bank account may restrict the amount that can be paid. Contact your bank to increase your daily limit if you feel the transaction will exceed the limit.

Students and Authorized Users can set up additional email addresses for notifications from our system. From the home page, go to the "Personal Profile" link on the right to set up or remove a secondary email. For students, the Washburn email address is the primary email. For authorized users, the email address used to set up your account is the primary email as well as the user ID.  Authorized users cannot sign in using their secondary email addresses.
