Tuition must be received (not postmarked) by the due date. Students who drop a class, must officially withdraw through the Student Services Office. Merely ceasing to attend class does not constitute official withdrawal from the University of Wisconsin Colleges. It is the student's responsibility to contact the Student Services office (262-335-5201) for an official withdrawal form. The date of this official withdrawal will be used to calculate fees due, required repayments of financial aid, or refunds. Students who officially withdraw may be eligible for refunds. The refund schedule is listed below. Account balances can be obtained on PRISM.
After registration, any student who discontinues class attendance must file an OFFICIAL WITHDRAWAL FORM in the Student Services office in order to limit his/her financial obligation. A withdrawal fee is also charged.
If you owe the UW Colleges a fine, money, or materials or are delinquent on payment of a loan obtained through the UW Colleges Financial Aid Office, a hold will be placed on your educational records. The hold will prohibit you from registering in the future and you will not be able to receive a transcript.
Please be sure you pay your tuition and fees on time, return library materials promptly, and meet all financial obligations.
Refunds are based upon the official date of withdrawal in the Student Services Office. The refund schedule is listed below. Refunds for students receiving financial aid may be returned to the financial provider, not the student.
|Class Length||Week 1||Week 2||Week 3||Week 4||Thereafter|
|8 - 11weeks||100%||50%||25%||None||None|
|5 - 7 weeks||100%||50%||None||None||None|
|3 - 4 weeks||100%||25%||None||None||None|
If you are enrolled at another University of Wisconsin campus at the same time you are enrolled at UW-Washington County, your fees may be adjusted, depending on the total number of credits for which you are registered at each campus. To receive any adjustment, bring your "PAID" receipt from that campus to the UW-Washington County Business Office.
This does not apply to students enrolled in any of the collaborative classes held on the West Bend campus through UW-Milwaukee and UW-Oshkosh. For further information, contact the Business office at (262) 335-5205.
Financial Aid/Scholarship Checks
It is the student's responsibility to check that any financial aid amounts have been credited to his/her account. Do not assume that because you have an award letter that the grants will be immediately credited to your account. Your financial aid may not arrive in time for the payment deadline. Since you are responsible for the timely payment of your fees, it is imperative that you complete a fee deferment, pay your tuition in full, or enter into an Installment Credit Agreement prior to the tuition payment deadline, to avoid having late fees applied and your registration cancelled.
If the amount of the aid exceeds the amount of tuition and fees, a "change" check will be issued. These change checks will not be issued until after the tuition payment deadline. Please note: Other aid will continue to be disbursed through the Business Office when they arrive from your lender.
