All students are responsible for paying their bill, whether or not they have financial aid. The Student Accounts Office publishes all payment deadlines for each term. The Financial Aid Office recommends students apply for financial aid as early as possible. In addition, it is important to complete all the necessary steps to receive your financial aid.
If the amount of financial aid does not cover the student's charges, UW-Whitewater provides an installment payment plan. All students must pay a minimum $100 enrollment deposit and have a Terms and Conditions Agreement on file. For more information about the payment plan, contact Student Accounts at (262) 472-1373 or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If a student or parent cannot cover the amount owed to the university, the Financial Aid Office recommends investigating other sources of financial aid, such as a Parent PLUS Loan or alternative loan. If the parent or student has experienced a hardship or special circumstance, contact the Financial Aid Office.
If the amount of financial aid exceeds the amount owed to the university, the student or parent will receive a refund. Please keep in mind this refund is meant to help with expenses throughout the semester. If charges are added to the bill after a refund is received (i.e., purple points, parking pass, weight room), the student must pay these charges by the deadline indicated by the Student Accounts Office.
