5. Final Steps

    • Pay tuition and fees by the Payment Deadline for that semester. Paying attention to these deadlines ensures that you are not dropped for non-payment. You are responsible for all payments, regardless of forthcoming financial aid or scholarships. 
    • Select how you wish to Receive Refunds from Weatherford College. Failure to complete this step will delay any refunds you may receive.  
    • Purchase or rent textbooks. These are required for all WC courses. Textbooks can be purchased or rented in person or by phone at:
