Other Expenses

Health Insurance

Massachusetts state law requires all students registered for nine or more credits, including a semester of co-op, to provide proof of health insurance coverage. To comply with this law, students who meet the criteria are assessed a charge for a student health insurance plan. If a student is already covered by an alternate plan that offers comparable coverage and would like to waive the insurance plan, the student must complete a waiver online by the deadline. Student health insurance must be purchased or waived each academic year, typically in the fall semester. Information and deadlines for completing the waiver are published by the Student Accounts Office on the E-Bill and by targeted communications to student's Wentworth email addresses. International students are required to purchase the annual student health insurance plan. International exchange students who attend for one semester must purchase the student health insurance for the semester(s) which they will attend. The standard fee for health insurance for the 2023-2024 academic year is $1,949.

Late Payments and Delinquent Accounts

Failure to  make payment in full, enroll in a payment plan, submit sponsor documentation and/or be covered by anticipated financial aid funds, or certified alternative loan or Parent PLUS loan funds, on or before the semester's due date (see Payment Information section) may result in a hold and a monthly $100 late payment fee.  Students who have not met their financial obligations to Wentworth will not be allowed to register for additional courses.   Students who have campus housing will not be permitted to move into their campus housing assignments, access their grades, transcripts, and diplomas will be withheld from students who have overdue balances.  Wentworth reserves the right to hold diplomas, grades, and transcripts from students who have balances due the University. It is a Wentworth policy that only those students who have met all the academic and financial requirements for graduation may participate in the graduation ceremony. Wentworth reserves the right to place delinquent unpaid student account balance with an outside collection agency. If an overdue obligation is referred for collection by Wentworth or to an outside agency or attorney for collection efforts and/or legal suit, the debt is increased to cover all reasonable costs of collection, including collection agency fees which may be a percentage of the balance owed at a maximum of 50% of the debt, and all collection costs and expenses, including reasonable attorney fees and court costs that Wentworth may incur in such collection efforts.   By registering for any class at Wentworth, the student accepts and agrees to be bound by the foregoing policy as applied to any preexisting or future obligation to Wentworth.  Wentworth reserves the right to report to credit bureaus those accounts placed with collection agencies

Credit Balance (Refund) Policy

Institutional and federal financial aid will disburse to student accounts approximately four weeks into the term if all the financial aid requirements are complete. Estimated semester refund dates are published on the Student Accounts Office website. Typically, there will not be a credit balance until all institutional and federal aid disburses. Once this occurs, and if it creates a credit balance, any remaining credit will be refunded as follows:

  • If a credit balance is a result of federal Stafford loans, alternative loans, and/or grants, the refund will be issued to the student based on the payment method they select for their refund account
  • If a credit balance is the result of a Parent PLUS loan, the refund will be issued to the parent borrower unless "refund to the student" is selected by the borrower during the loan application
  • If a credit balance is a result of monthly payment plan, the refund will be issued to the plan payer. Any credit balances resulting from a monthly payment plan will not be refunded until the plan is completed and/or withdrawn
  • If a credit balance is a result of a credit card payment, and the payment was made within the past 90 days, the refund will be credited back to the credit card used for the transaction. If the credit card payment was made more than 90 days ago, the refund will be issued to the student based on the payment method they select for their refund account
  • If a credit balance is the result of an over payment, and the payment was made by web or paper check, the refund will be issued to the student based on the payment method they select for their refund account, regardless of who the payer is
  • If a credit balance is a result of payments made by or loans in the name of parents who are separated or divorced, Wentworth will refund to the student
  • Student's whose tuition charge is covered 100% by Chapter 31 veterans benefits may request any federal or state financial aid that has disbursed be refunded to them prior to Wentworth receiving payment from the VA for the semester in session

Any credit on a student's account due to federal financial aid will be refunded back to the appropriate party at the end of the academic year.

Withdrawal from Wentworth

Before withdrawing, it is highly recommended that a student seek counseling from their  faculty advisor, or Wellness, if the withdrawal is medical in nature. Students should also consult with the appropriate Financial Aid and Student Account Counselors to discuss any financial consequences of voluntary withdrawal. International students must have their withdrawal form signed by an International Student Services employee or Designated School Official (DSO).

A student who decides to withdraw from Wentworth during the semester should complete a Voluntary Withdrawal Form, located on MyWentworth, and follow the Voluntary Withdrawal procedures outlined in the catalog. Wentworth issued laptop computers (prior to Fall 2022) must be returned to the DTS Helpdesk, located on the third floor of Beatty Hall. Students who do not return the Wentworth issued laptop will be charged a Laptop Recovery Fee equal to the cost of the computer system as stipulated in the Laptop Program Student Agreement. All students are liable for tuition, room and board, and technology and laptop fees in accordance with the adjustment policy below.

Tuition Adjustments

Tuition adjustment for a withdrawing student is initiated based on the point in the semester at which the student submits the voluntary withdrawal form to the Registrar's Office. Non-attendance of classes does not constitute an official withdrawal, and no adjustments will be made based solely on lack of attendance. Students who register for classes, fail to attend those classes, and who do not notify Wentworth of their intention to withdraw from classes, are liable for all tuition and fees assessed for that semester. Tuition and fees will not be adjusted until the Registrar's Office receives a completed official withdrawal form, or when the student is reported as administratively withdrawn by a Registrar's Office staff member. Withdrawal forms received after the proration period will not initiate tuition adjustments. Tuition adjustments are made as follows:

For 15-Week Courses:

  • If withdrawal is filed by the end of the drop/add period, tuition reversal amount is 100%, minus non-refundable $500 deposit, if applicable.
  • If withdrawal is filed by the end of the second week of the semester, tuition reversal amount is 75%.
  • If withdrawal is filed by the end of the third week of the semester, tuition reversal amount is 50%.
  • If withdrawal is filed by the end of the fourth week of the semester, tuition reversal amount is 25%.
  • If withdrawal is filed by the fifth week of the semester and later, no reversal of tuition charges.

For Six- or Seven-Week Courses:

  • If withdrawal is filed by the end of the first week of the course, tuition reversal amount is 100%.
  • If withdrawal is filed by the end of the second week of the course, tuition reversal amount is 50%.
  • If withdrawal is filed by the third week of the course and later, no reversal of tuition charges.

Students who withdraw from Wentworth and receive federal student financial aid are subject to a refund policy as prescribed by Federal Regulations. Students should contact their Financial Aid and Student Account Counselors to obtain the appropriate financial aid refund schedule, as well as to discuss any remaining financial obligations. Fees are not refundable once the semester begins. Students are liable for tuition and fees in accordance with the published refund policy.

Room and Board Adjustment

A student’s room and board charges are determined by the date which the student’s room key(s) is returned to the Resident Hall Director. A student who withdraws is responsible for board charges based on actual meal points used. Board charges are pro-rated on a per day usage through the end of the semester.

Students who wish to withdraw from housing but remain enrolled in classes at Wentworth must complete a Housing Cancellation form, located on the Housing and Residential Life website. Students will receive a 100% refund of room charges through the last day of Add/Drop. Room charges are pro-rated at a per-day use rate through the end of the semester. Students  must complete and sign  the Voluntary Withdrawal Form located on MyWentworth. 

No adjustments to room or board charges will be made to the account of any student who is withdrawn for disciplinary sanctions. For more information, please contact the Office of Housing and Residential Life at or (617) 989-4160.

Housing Agreement Release Fee

Students who live on campus sign a housing agreement for the duration of their housing assignment period. Students who withdraw from their housing agreement without a valid reason will be responsible for a varied housing release. Please see the policies section on Wentworth Residential and Commuter Life’s website ( for more information.

Refund of Payments

After all necessary adjustments have been made to a student’s account, any credits resulting from payments made will be refunded in accordance with the above-mentioned refund policy.

Federal Funds Refund

If a student withdraws from Wentworth during the semester, the total refunded amount is determined according to federal and institutional refund policy. The refund will be returned to the individual programs in the following order:

  1. Federal Unsubsidized Stafford Loan,
  2. Federal Subsidized Stafford Loan,
  3. Federal PLUS Loan,
  4. Federal Pell Grant,
  5. Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant,
  6. State funded Grants,
  7. Private funded programs, and
  8. Wentworth Institutional Aid

Specific questions regarding the refund policy can be addressed with a student’s Financial Aid or Student Account Counselor. In some cases, a student’s account may end up having a balance due after the federal financial aid adjustment is done. Students will be notified and billed for the balance and any account balance becomes due immediately.
