- Advance Tuition Deposit (ATD):
All new and continuing students who register for classes are required to make a $100 Advance Tuition Deposit (ATD) to secure their class registration. The ATD is not a fee, but an advance payment and a financial commitment, which is applied towards your tuition. The ATD is not refundable if the student withdraws from UW-WC after November 30, 2012 for spring 2013 classes. The ATD cannot be covered by financial aid or scholarship monies. Payment may be made by mail (check), at the Business office (cash, check or money order only) or via PRISM (credit card or electronic check). Allow at least an additional 24 hours after paying the ATD, before registering for classes (system updates).
- Students' Responsibility:
Students are responsible for payment of tuition and fees by the due date (as listed above). Any student account that goes into default will be responsible for all collection costs associated with the collection of the past due amount. More information on withdrawal fees.
- Late Fees:
Students who have not paid their tuition by the above deadlines will be assessed a $100 late fee. In addition, any student account that goes into default will be responsible for all collection costs associated with the collection of the past due amount.
Students who withdraw after November 30, 2012 for spring 2013 classes will be charged a $100 withdrawal fee.
- Course Changes:

If you fail to meet this requirement, you will be removed from your course(s) when the course is full or at the close of Online registration.

(Special course fees still apply.) If enrolled for both credit and audit courses, all credits will be assessed at the credit rate.

If you are also enrolled at another University of Wisconsin campus, your fees may be adjusted, depending on your total credit load. To receive any adjustment to which you may be entitled, bring your "paid" receipt from that campus to the UW-Washington County Business Office prior to the due date. If you don’t have a “paid” receipt by that time, make contact with the Business Office to make arrangements to avoid any late fees being applied. This does not apply to students enrolled in one of the collaborative degree programs held on the UW-WC campus.
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.
For questions regarding payment of tuition and fees, stop in the Business Office Monday through Friday between 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., or phone 262-335-5205.
