Cashier's Office

 

Departments receiving cash or other revenues must deposit funds to the UWW Cashier's office on at least a weekly basis. State statues require deposits to be made within 7 days of receipt, so departments must plan accordingly. A minimum of two days should be allowed for the Cashier's office to process the deposit to meet the requirement.

Complete the Deposit Form. This form requires the separation of taxable and non-taxable sales and other revenue. A list of taxable revenue can be found here.  All deposit forms must be reviewed for accuracy and signed by a UWW staff member prior to submission to the Cashier's office. 

Cashier's office staff will process the deposits as received, with any questions directed to the person signing the deposit form or the Campus Business Rep. A receipt will be available if desired. 


Donations need to be formally accepted by the Chancellor. Please contact the Chancellors office at 262-472-1921.


Should a department desire to generate credit card sales they must first contact the Cashier's office to set up an account for these types of transactions.

Please call 262-472-1378 with any questions.


UWW Cashier's office provides checking account services for recognized student or faculty organizations. The Cashier's office provides the organizations with an account number, whereby they can deposit funds, have checks written for them on the funds, and receive a monthly statement of account.

The student organization must be recognized by the UW, and must have officers and an advisor to set up an account. Student organizations with their own unique state or federal ID number are able to set up their own bank account, but may prefer this option as they do not need to order checks, it is easier to change required signatures, and funds are conveniently available to them.

Students receiving financial aid are subject to the same payment deadlines as other students. Do not assume your financial aid will be available to pay your University bill on time. Most aid is processed in time, but if you have not submitted your information timely, have not met all qualifications for aid, had to provide additional information for verification, or have not accepted or completed follow up tasks required for aid, your aid may be delayed. You will need to check your WINS account to confirm that aid has processed by the due date. Finance charges will still apply to accounts with delayed aid.

Finance Charge

A finance charge will be added to any past due balance. This finance charge will be assessed each billing period until the student account is current.


Questions can be directed to Student Accounts at 262-472-1373. Click on the attached link to obtain 3rd Party Payment Guidelines 

Non-Government Third Party

If you have received a letter or payment authorization document from a 3rd party for the University to bill them on your behalf, this must be presented to the Student Accounts Office at least two weeks prior to the start of classes for the applicable term. In order to provide this information, you must also complete the release of information form LINK and submit that with the request for a courtesy billing.

Payments are not credited to your student account until 3rd party has made the payment to the University. Any delay in submitting documents will delay the University's courtesy billing to the 3rd party, and will most likely delay a payment by the 3rd party on your account. Failure of the 3rd party to make a payment toward the student's account will need to be followed up by the student, as the University takes no responsibility for obtaining this payment.

Any requirements of the 3rd party or changes to the student's class schedule or fees will need to be communicated by the student to the 3rd party, as no further reporting is completed.

Government Agency

Students who have received a voucher or authorization to have tuition and fees billed to a government agency should submit this and any other required documents to Student Accounts Hyer Hall Room 110 or email to sfs@uww.edu . All documents must be turned in 10 days before the start of the term for which it applies. A credit will be placed on the student account once the invoice has been sent to the government agency. The student should be prepared to pay the remaining balance by the due date indicated on the bill.

If a refund is due, it will be paid to the student. Any overpayments that are owed to the government should be paid by the student to the agency as soon as possible.

Government Agency - Veterans

Veterans who will receive government assistance with tuition and fees (GI Bill, yellow ribbon, Post 9/11 supplement) should first see Jan Nordin, Veteran's coordinator, in the Registrar's Office 262-472-1570. Some of these benefits can be viewed on the Registrar's webpage at http://www.uww.edu/registrar


Financial aid will be disbursed on or prior to the first day of classes if it is available.  Financial aid will be used to pay any remaining balance on students' accounts before refunds will be issued, if authorized.  Refunds will be delayed if a past due balance exists on the student account.  Any excess aid will be processed after the term begins.

Refunds are processed on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  All refunds are done electronically.

For a quicker initial refund, sign up for e-Refunding to get your money electronically deposited into the bank account of your choice. To sign up for e-Refunding, follow the e-Refunding instructions [PDF]. Once you have set up your refund/payment profile, your refund check will be deposited in approximately 2-3 business days after it has posted to your student account on WINS. The funds will be available to you as soon as they are deposited. All future refunds will be direct deposited into the account you set up.

If you do not have a bank account, you can expect your refund to be delayed. Any refunds that cannot be processed electronically will be processed as a paper check and mailed to your local address; when school is in session and to your home address; when school is not in session. 

NOTE: If you are an International student you must have a US account set up at the bank of your choice to process direct deposit OR an address that a check can be mailed to in the US. We cannot mail checks to foreign addresses.

According to WI Stat. 943.24, a student can be fined and required to appear in court for issuing a worthless check (including online transactions).  The university will assess a $20 service charge for any payment returned as unpaid.  This is in addition to the charge your bank may assess.
