Payment Options - Fall and Spring
NO PAPER BILLS WILL BE SENT TO REGISTERED STUDENTS—students are required to log in to PRISM to view your account balance and/or to pay your fees. Tuition and fees are due at the time of registration or no later than the end of the second week of classes - the 10th day of classes. Refer to the options below for making payment.
NOTE: If you do not elect one of the payment options by the 10th day of classes, you will be financially responsible for your all of your tuition fees including a mandatory $100 administrative late payment penalty fee. Please also note that the campus Business Services office does/cannot accept any plastic--no credit or debit cards--at the counter for payments of tuition and fees. You may use your credit/debit card--only if it is a MasterCard or Discover card, online.
OPTION #1: FULL PAYMENT
PAYMENTS BY CASH AND/OR CHECKS can be made at Business Services when you register for classes but must be received no later than the close of business on the 10 class day of the semester (payment deadline).
- pay in person at Business Services or
- pay your fees by mail or
[Make your checks payable to: UW Sheboygan. Address your envelope to: UW Sheboygan Business Services, 1 University Dr., Sheboygan, WI 53081. Please make sure the student name and Prism ID number is included on the remittance check, to ensure proper credit to the appropriate account. Payments sent through the mail, will be credited to the student's account the day it is received.]
- deposit your fees at the depository
[The depository is located outside Business Services. Payments received in the depository after 3PM will not be credited to your account until the following business day.]
Please note: Online web check payments or paying at the campus are payment options for which there is no service fee. However, a service fee of 2.5% of the payment amount will automatically be assessed to payments made online using a credit/debit card (Visa, MasterCard, and Discover are accepted.
OPTION #2: CREDIT AGREEMENT
Students electing to participate in an installment plan must complete the Credit Agreement and turn it in to Business Services. Along with the paper agreement form, a minimum $200 down payment is required to qualify for this type of payment plan. NOTE: the initial Advance Tuition Deposit (ATD) of $100 can be considered as half of the down payment.
The Credit Agreement is a contract with the UW Sheboygan/UW Colleges. It is a legal document and therefore, you must be 18 years old at the time of signing. Proof of birth is required; a driver's license, birth certificate or other legal document showing birth date is needed. If a student is not 18 years or older, a parent or legal guardian must co-sign the document. If a student is 18 years or older, the student must sign the document--a parent may not sign for the student.
The Credit Agreement must be completed in person at Business Services before the end of the second week of classes. There is a one time non-refundable $25 enrollment charge, which will be added to the charges due for the semester. The Credit Agreement form need only be completed once for as long as you are a student at UW Sheboygan.
After the down payment is applied to the student account, the remaining balance is divided into two equal payments ( see due dates ). There is a late installment fee of $35 for each payment that is late. There is no grace period.
Withdrawing from the university does not eliminate your legal financial obligation to pay the remaining installments. NOTE: Since the Fall 2008 semester, once an agreement is completed, you will be considered to be on a payment plan each subsequent semester as long as you pay the required minimum $200 down payment.
OPTION #3: FEE DEFERMENT
You must have a Financial Aid Award letter to qualify for a Deferment. If a loan has been awarded and offered to you, you must have completed and filed the loan application, completed your master promissory note, and exit counseling on line at http://www.uwc.edu/financial-aid/ to be eligible for a FeeDeferment. Please see Business Services regarding Fee Deferments.
An Automatic Fee Deferment will be posted as a "Pending FA Waiver" on your account if all of the above criteria have been met. A waiver amount indicates the amount of financial aid that will be disbursed on the 11th day of classes if you are full time, given there is no change in your credit load.
If after an Automatic Fee Deferment is posted to your account
you have a balance that is a credit or zero balance, you will not need to make any additional payment unless your financial award total changes, your credit load changes or charges are added to your account. It is your responsibility to keep track of your account status by logging into your PRISM account regularly.
you have a balance that is a positive amount due, you will need to pay that amount or apply for the payment plan and pay the required down payment on or before the deadline to avoid any late fees. (If you have never been on a payment plan at UW Sheboygan you will need to complete a Credit Agreement form and bring it to Business Services with your down payment.)
If you applied for, qualified for in the past, or currently qualify for financial aid, DO NOT ASSUME that it will arrive in time to meet the payment/tuition deadline date. You must be proactive in reviewing your tuition balance account, in PRISM, to avoid being assessed late fees of $100 or more!
