Additional Fees


Many courses have required textbooks. Students typically order textbooks online from WSU's bookstore, The Bookie.

Media Rental Fees

Many courses have required media or other course materials (online media, DVDs). Media provided by WSU will be charged to students' accounts and should be paid with tuition before the deadline. Some courses may require students to obtain certain titles by renting them from a local outlet.

Lab Kit Fees

Some courses have lab kits that will be automatically sent to you when you register for a course. Do not return opened lab kits.

The fees for media and lab kits will be listed in the WSU Online course information pages and are charged to students' accounts to be paid with WSU tuition.

Proctoring Fees

Some courses require you to take proctored exams, which are exams taken under the supervision of an acceptable proctor. Many proctors charge a fee to the student. When contacting a proctor, students should ask about that charge. If a course has exams that require a proctor, it will be noted in the syllabus.

WSU Writing Portfolio Fees

Global Campus students completing the WSU Writing Portfolio will be assessed $70.00 in fees ($20 from the Global Campus and $50.00 from WSU) on their student account for the costs associated with administering the portfolio. If students choose to take the online timed writing exam instead of the paper-based exam, there is an additional $35 fee.
