How To Pay WSU Registration Fee?

Payment mechanisms are as follows:

Where the correct reference number and the designated banking account has been used, and payment is from FNB account or a cash deposit, financial clearance will be processed within an hour. Payments from another bank may take up to 48 hours to verify. Payments from other banks should be made at least two days prior to registration to avoid delays. Payments by foreign students must be made in Rand and deposited into the University Bank Account. Provision should be made for bank costs – obtain guidance from enquiries.

Cash Payments:

The University no longer accepts any cash payments at the cashier’s windows (for security reasons). Students are therefore requested not to attempt to make cash payments. Please note that no cash should be paid to any University official. The University will not be held liable for any loss as a result of cash paid to University officials in contravention of this notice.

Bank Deposits and Electronic Funds Transfer:

Fees should be paid directly into the University bank account either by cash deposit or electronic funds transfer (EFT).

Account No. 52640012812

Proof of Payment

The University does not accept proof of payments (bank deposit slips and ATM deposit slips) for financial clearance purposes to prevent fraud.

Financial clearance will only be processed when the University has verified payments made.
