Your seat in the course is not secure until your online tuition is paid in full or, if you are a UW Colleges Online degree-seeking student, the UW Colleges confirms that you have adequate financial aid to cover your Online tuition in full. Failure to meet this requirement will result in your removal from your course(s) when a course is full or at the close of registration.
Follow the payment instructions carefully, as you will not receive an invoice
Please note, if you register for both Summer and Fall courses, tuition payments will be credited first to the summer term until that balance is paid in full. This applies to registration for both campus and Online courses. If you are a UWC campus student who is registered for both Summer and Fall and need to make a Fall payment for Online courses only before your summer tuition is paid in full, please call 877-449-1877.
UWC-Online tuition is above and beyond UW Colleges' campus tuition. It is NOT part of the campus tuition plateau. Tuition refunds are governed by the UW Board of Regents Fee Refund Schedule, which is issued annually. The date your withdrawal is officially completed is the date used for calculating tuition refund. If you have questions about your refund, please contact the Office of Distance Education. You can use the Tuition Net Cost Calculator for assistance in planning your tuition costs.
Student Financial Aid is available to eligible students who are admitted to UW Colleges Online. More information about applying for financial aid can be found on the Student Financial Aid (SFA) website. You can also email the SFA Advisor with your questions.
