Advance Tuition Deposit (ATD)
All students are required to pay a $100 Advance Tuition Deposit (ATD) each fall and spring semester prior to registration. PRISM will not allow registration until this fee is paid. The ATD is not a fee, but an advance payment which will be applied to your tuition. The ATD and subsequent registration is a financial commitment to pay tuition and fees to UW Sheboygan.
Are there any exemptions?
Students including Youth Options Program, Credit Outreach, Senior Auditor, Old Age Survivors and Disability Insurance are exempted. Although exempt from having to pay an ATD, these students will not be exempt from withdrawal fees, if applicable.
Will I pay any penalty fees?
When you pay the ATD and register for classes, no matter when or if you attend classes, you are considered financially committed to UW Sheboygan. Therefore, if you want to withdraw from all of your classes you must officially withdraw in PRISM or go to Student Services. Until your withdrawal is posted in PRISM, you will owe all of your tuition and fees plus a $100 administrative penalty fee. Merely ceasing to attend class does not constitute official withdrawal from University of Wisconsin Sheboygan.
How do I make a payment?
You may pay your ATD by cash, check, or money order at Business Services.
You may pay your ATD by credit card, debit card (MasterCard or Discover Card only) or electronic check online via your PRISM account.
Can I get a refund?
The ATD is refundable if you withdraw from fall semester classes prior to July 1 or from spring semester classes prior to December 1.
- If you withdraw on or after those dates and you have paid an ATD, you will forfeit your $100 ATD
- If you withdraw on or after those dates and were not required to pay (see exemptions above) an ATD, you will be charged a mandatory $100 withdrawal fee.
