Tuition Payment 

Tuition for the classes (and any applicable class materials fees) must be paid in full in person on the first day of class. Payments may be made by check or money order payable to WMU. No cash, debit, credit, or student account payments will be accepted. The Confucius Institute offers tuition discounts to qualified participants.

*Discounts

A half-price discount is offered to WMU students, and senior citizens (55 or above). However, some classes have "Material fees" apart from the tuition cost, which all participants must pay in full.

Starting from fall 2017, WMU employees are only required to pay $25 registration fees and material fees (if applicable), no other tuition cost.

For example, if you are a WMU employee, and you want to take the Taichi Fan class, the total amount you need to pay is $25 (registration fee) + $30 (material fee) = $55.  If you are a WMU student or senior citizen, and you want to take the Taichi Fan class, the total amount you need to pay is $55 (half-price discount ) + $30 (Material fee) = $85. 

 

 

About Parking on WMU's Main Campus 

 

Western Michigan University's main campus offers metered parking spaces in most of its lots for use by guests; faculty, staff, and student are required to have a parking pass and to park in the area of the lots designated by their pass. There is no "free" parking on campus. Meters accept only quarters and change machines are offered in some of the lots. Following are tips and guides that will help you determine the best lot to park in when attending Confucius Institute culture classes.

It is the responsibility of interested participants to become as familiar as possible with WMU's parking regulations. 
Confucius Institute and its class instructors cannot obtain or provide parking passes or quarters for meters.

 

Interactive Campus Map   

WMU has an online campus map that makes searching for buildings, parking, and handicap accessible areas fast and simple. Click here to access the interactive map. The map contains several viewing options, one of which is to see a parking map of WMU campus. In the right-hand corner of the map, there are three buttons that say "Map", "Satellite", "Layers" and "Legend" respectively. If you click on the button that says "Layers", a drop-down menu appears, and among the options is "Parking". Click the "Parking" check-box and the map will show you all of the parking areas on campus. If you click on the "Legend" button, the legend will appear below the map that will indicate what the different shaded areas represent.

 

WMU Parking Passes and Parking Meters

WMU has two main parking designations: parking for persons with permits and metered parking. WMU Parking Services offers several different kinds of parking permits for WMU students, WMU employees, and visitors. Click here for detailed information about Parking Services regulations.

If a person does not have a parking permit and wishes to park on WMU's campus, they must park only in areas designated as "Visitor Parking" and pay the parking meters. Go to the top of this page to view detailed instructions about viewing the parking map in the WMU Interactive Map, or click here for Parking Services' parking map, which is specifically geared toward parking at WMU.
