Important tips for avoiding additional fees:

  • Check your WKU Topper e-mail account regularly for your student billing statements and other important messages. Be sure to log into TopNet and pay your account on time to avoid late charges.
  • Add a Billing e-mail address to your student account.  You can have your billing statement sent directly to the individual who pays your tuition; allowing the payment to be made in a timely manner to avoid late charges. Setting up a billing e-mail address is simple.

              1.  Login to TopNet
              2.  Select the "Personal Information" tab
              3.  Click on View/Update E-mail Address(es) link
              4.  Select "Billing E-mail Address"
  • Register for your classes on or before the first day of the semester to avoid late registration fees.
  • Be certain to make changes to your schedule during the grace period allowed.  After the grace period is over you will be charged a $50 Schedule Change Fee for each class dropped or added.
