Scholarship Processing

Scholarship checks are treated like financial aid and require additional time to process.  Please submit scholarship checks to UW-Whitewater Cashier's Office using the form in this link at least 10 days before the billing due date. Scholarships may have an impact on the amount of financial aid awarded.  Please contact your Financial Aid Advisor with questions at

If a private scholarship check requires a student's signature, the Cashier's Office will send an email to the student's UW-Whitewater email account. The check cannot be processed until signed, resulting in a delay in processing. Scholarships are considered financial aid and will be applied to the student's account. If an overpayment occurs, a refund will be processed for the student. 

All UW-Whitewater Foundation Scholarships will automatically credit to a student's account. Please note that full-time enrollment (at least 12 credits for undergraduates) is necessary for most Foundation Scholarships.

Students are responsible for timely payment of their student bills even if scholarships are expected, but not yet processed.

Scholarship checks should be mailed to:
