Accounts Receivable

We are responsible for ensuring that all student accounts are accurate, and for collecting any overdue balances. We also put a "Financial Services Hold" on accounts when monies are owed to the college.  If you owe money to the college, a "Financial Services Hold" will be placed on your account and you will not be able to register for classes, graduate, and/or receive a transcript until your balance is paid in full.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why do I have a "Financial Services Hold" on my account?

The most common reason for a "Financial Services Hold" on an account is missing financial aid paperwork.

Other reasons could include:

  • Insufficient aid to cover balance in full
  • Parking citations
  • Library fines
  • Graduation fees

What should I do if I have a hold on my account?

If you are not sure why there is a hold on your account, check your Self Service account through WebAdvisor. If you are still unable to determine why you have a hold, contact the Cashier at [email protected]. Please note that the cashier does not place the holds on accounts. They are simply the contact to find out the reasoning for your hold. 

I paid my balance online. Why do I still have a hold on my account?

"Financial Services Holds" are not automatically removed at the time of payment. They are manually removed the following business day.  If you need your hold removed during regular business hours, please contact the cashier at [email protected].

Why did I receive a statement (bill) when I have financial aid?

You may receive a bill if you have not received your financial aid award letter. If you have enrolled in classes and started the semester but you have not received your letter, you are responsible for any charges incurred. Contact Financial Aid at 919-866-5410 for assistance.

I don't agree with the amount on my account statement. What should I do?

I'm expecting a refund. Where is it?

Why was my NC State Tax Refund or Lottery winnings sent to Wake Tech instead of to me?

A student's account can be turned over to The NC Department of Revenue Debt Setoff Program if a student owes Wake Tech a debt of $50 or more and the account has been delinquent for more than 90 days.
Once an account has been placed with the Debt Setoff Program, it will remain with the NC Department of Revenue until the debt has been paid in full or no longer meets the requirements. 

I withdrew and dropped all my classes. Why did I get a bill?

Withdrawing from or dropping a course does not negate a student's financial responsibility for tuition and fees. A 25% penalty is incurred when a class is dropped without adding a class first. A student is financially responsible for 100% of tuition and fees when he or she withdraws from a class after the drop/add period.
