Academic Fees. All students who attend the university pay academic fees assessed by the Board of Regents of the University of Wisconsin System. A non-resident fee is added to the academic fee for non-resident students.
Registration Deposit. All students are required to pay a $100.00 registration deposit before they can be scheduled. This deposit will be applied to the academic fee for the semester.
Special Course Fees represent charges in addition to the regular instructional fee and tuition. These fees are charged to students enrolling in certain courses that have been approved for such a fee for materials that represent special or extraordinary cost; for example, art courses dealing with precious metals. All such special course fees are specified for each such course each semester in the Timetable.
Fee Payments. UW-Whitewater offers two methods to pay fees:
The refund schedule for withdrawals applies to class drops as well as complete withdrawal.
Students who enter the military service by enlistment, draft, or otherwise, receive either a full refund or receive course credits for the term depending upon the length of their enrollment in the course. In determining the withdrawal date, the University uses the date students notify the Registrar's Office of the withdrawal; or, if they fail to notify the Registrar and they are otherwise unable to verify the date of the withdrawal, the date of the request for refund is used to determine the amount of the refund.
The following schedule on refunds of academic fees applies to all students withdrawing from the University.

The University of Wisconsin-Whitewater requires all students to comply with the following billing policies:
ADVANCE REGISTRATION BILLING - If students register during the advance registration process, they will be mailed an advance registration billing statement which will allow them to pay their fees in full and/or elect to go on the University Installment Plan.
FIRST INSTALLMENT BILLING - Students are required to pay at least 1/2 of their total balance by the due date of this bill.
LAST INSTALLMENT BILLING - Students are required to pay the entire remaining balance by the due date of this bill.
Failure to receive a bill will not relieve students from paying by the required due dates.
Registrants may mail their payments to:
RETURNED CHECK CHARGE. A $15.00 service charge will be assessed on all checks returned by a bank. Any checks returned after the original payment due date will be cause for registrations to be cancelled or an administrative fee assessed. A returned check is considered nonpayment.
Financial aid recipients, including students receiving Federal Direct and Parent Loans, must be prepared to pay the $100.00 down payment out of personal funds, and sign an Installment Credit Agreement and a Marital Property Form if one is not on file. Financial aid will be disbursed prior to the first day of classes if it is available. Any overpayments (refunds) can be picked up at the Cashier's Office during the first week of classes. After the first week, checks will be mailed. Picture identification is required to pick up checks. Financial aid checks must be used to pay any remaining balance on students' accounts before refunds will be issued.
Specific information on the amount or type of financial aid checks is privileged and will not be given over the telephone.
