Excess Credits Surcharge

The University of Wisconsin System Board of Regents has established an Excess Credits Policy requiring resident undergraduate students to pay a surcharge for all credits beyond 165 that are earned toward their first undergraduate degree. This policy includes all earned credits from UW-Whitewater as well as earned credits from other UW System schools or Wisconsin Technical Colleges System (WTCS) schools that are accepted for your degree. Credits from non-UW or WTCS schools do not count toward this policy, nor do Advanced Placement, retroactive, credits by exam, and remedial credits.

For information or to process an appeal, BA and BS students should contact Annie Weberpal,, Laurentide 4111, (262) 472-1555. BSE students should contact the College of Education Advising Assistance Center, Winther Hall 2003.
