Communication with students will be through WPUNJ email address ONLY. For tuition waiver questions, please contact Ms. Eva G. Reyes at firstname.lastname@example.org
There is an increasing need for fast and efficient communication with currently enrolled students in order to conduct official business at William Paterson University. Each student is issued a unique University ID number (855 ID) and an email account for use throughout the time the student is enrolled for classes at the University. Accordingly, email is a formal communication by the University.
Email shall be considered an official form of communication by William Paterson University unless otherwise prohibited by law. The University reserves the right to send official communications to students by email with the full expectation that students will receive email, read these emails and respond accordingly in a timely fashion.
Official University email accounts are created for all accepted students and will be treated as directory information. The domain name for an official University email account is "student.wpunj.edu". Official University communications will be sent to students' official University email addresses.Students are expected to check their email on a frequent and consistent basis in order to stay current with University-related communications. Students must insure that there is sufficient space in their email accounts to allow for email to be delivered. Students have the responsibility for recognizing that certain communications may be time-critical. Emails being returned due to "Mailbox Full" or "Error Forwarding" messages are not acceptable excuses for missing official University communications via email.
Students who choose to have their email forwarded to a private (unofficial) email address outside the official University network address do so at their own risk. The University is not responsible for any difficulties that may occur in the proper or timely transmission or access of email forwarded to any unofficial email address, and any such problems will not absolve students of their responsibility to know and comply with the content of official communications sent to students' official William Paterson University email addresses.
Students registered for courses must meet tuition & fee payment criteria by the dates listed below for registration cancellation or they will be dropped from all registered courses.
To avoid registration cancellation, one or more of the following criteria must be met prior to the relevant registration cancellation date:
1) Full payment of tuition/fees by cash, check, credit card or ACH bank draft
2) Enrollment in the William Paterson tuition payment plan
3) Partial payment that reduces the payable student account balance to the designated threshold or less. (Note—partial payment will save registration but will not prevent assessment of additional fees if account later becomes past due)
4) Financial aid application in process with the University (only if FA eligibility is confirmed and sufficient enough to lower current balance below designated thresholds)
5) Payment in the form of scholarships, third party payments or tuition waivers reflected on the student’s account that reduces the payable student account balance to the designated threshold or less
All students, including those not subject to registration cancellation, who have not made satisfactory billing arrangements (i.e., paid in full or enrollment in a payment plan) by the due dates, will be subject to the following:
Student payable balances are subject to registration cancellation based on multiple factors, including a minimum threshold amount, below which cancellation will not occur unless other factors overriding factors exist. The designated thresholds are:
Level Credits Threshold
UG/FT 12 or more 2,050
UG/PT 11 or less 1,050
GR/FT 9 or more 2,050
GR/PT 8 or less 1,050
