All billing for Penn West student and authorized parents is done electronically only.  No longer will student receive a paper statement in the mail.  Students who register within two weeks of the semester start date should be prepared to make payment at the time of registration.  All other billing statements will be sent electronically. An e-mail notification will be sent to the student's PennWest California email address and to authorized users when the new bill is available.

Payment may be made by cash, check, money order or certified bank draft made payable to Penn West University, or if using a credit/debit card you may pay online only using VISA, MasterCard, American Express or Discover Card.
