Tuition and Financial Services

Early Entry Tuition

  • After a student is fully enrolled into a Early Entry course, s/he will receive a bill in the mail to their home address. Each Early Entry course only costs $70.53 plus any lab fees if the course requires a fee to be charged. This is almost 2/3 less than the cost of other WSC students who pay roughly $150 per credit hour.
  • Billing statements are also generated to the student's Campus Connection Account; however, please note that this statement may show the full tuition and not the adjusted tuition charge.
  • Students may make payment by check in the mail, cash/check/credit card in the Student Services Office, or online through Campus Connection. 
  • Failure to pay statement amount will result the inability for transcript requests to be released to the students or other educational institutions. Enrollment for future terms is not permittable until the statement balance is paid in full.


Financial Assistance

Williston State College's Student Accounts department does allow students taking a minimum of 6 credit hours to establish a payment plan. Contact the department before the tuition bill is due at  701.774.4299 or 1.800.863.9455 Ext/ 4299.

In addition, the Bank of North Dakota has two assistance programs available to Early Entry students.

  1. North Dakota College Access Network (ND CAN) Scholarship helps students who qualify for Free or Reduced Price Meal Program get a head start on college by providing various levels of assistance that are not to be paid back. Please visit with your high school counselor/administrator regarding this program or visit: http://banknd.nd.gov/collegeplanning/pdf/60348DualCreditAssistanceApplication.pdf
  2. Dakota Education Alternative Loan (DEAL) is for US citizen students only and does require re-payment. The student should contact the Williston State College Financial Aid Office for form information and questions at: 1.888.863.9455 Ext 4248 or 701.774.4248.


Dual credit students can apply for assistance through the Bank of North Dakota. This form must be completed in its entirety and sent directly to the Bank of North Dakota from the designated school administrator.

Refund Policy

Refunds, full and partial, are available to students as long as the drop form is completed and turned into the Student Services office by the mandated deadlines for each semester. Students seeking credit from their high school should get the proper drop form from the high school counselor or administrator to ensure high school schedule adjustments can be made.

See the appropriate term class schedule to view add/drop dates.

Please note that the application fee is not refundable.
