3. When/Where are the W$ Counseling Sessions taking place?
W$ Counseling session dates and the location are posted on the Office of Student Accounts’ website for the Fall and Spring Semesters. Also, notifications are sent to those students with outstanding balances.
4. What happens if I do not attend W$ Counseling and have an unpaid account balance?
A Student is not allowed to take Final Exams with an unpaid account balance unless the student is fiscally cleared by the Office of Student Accounts.
