Third-Party Billing and Deferred Payment forms may be picked up at the Finance Office at 32 W. South Street or on the Wilkes web site. These forms must be submitted each semester.

Note: The Finance Office is prohibited from signing graduation clearance forms until any outstanding balance is paid in full. Graduates who have requested the deferred payment option must pay the final semester balances personally before clearance forms are signed (or have a written guarantee from their employer that the amount will be paid to Wilkes regardless of course completion or final grade). Those prospective graduates not complying with the above policy will not be cleared until actual payment is received from their employer.
