Program Fees payable to Wayne State University
Your account at Wayne State University will be charged $10,300 each semester, in September and December.  You can check your account balance on the Wayne State “Academica” system. Your access information for Academica was sent to you by email, including your WSU ID No., your Access ID, and your password.


Paying online:
Log in to Academica (, click the Student Resources link, then click Online Payments, then Make an Online Payment.  As you “checkout” you are given two options:

  • From your bank account through the Automated Clearing House (ACH) system. There is no charge for this bank-to-bank system.  We highly recommend this method as the most efficient, most reliable, most convenient, and least expensive.
  • By credit card.    Credit card payments are processed by CashNET Smartpay, a third party processor operating under an agreement with Wayne State University.  Be aware that there is a 2.9% “service fee” charged to all credit card payments.  Discover, MasterCard, Visa, and American Express are accepted.
