Additional Fees

Student Responsibility

It is each student's responsibility to review the tuition policies. Late fees and withdrawal fees are assessed after the deadlines.

Important Information:

SUMMER 2014: Students who withdraw after April 30, 2014 will be assessed a $100 withdrawal fee. Students who have not paid their tuition by the due date will be assessed a $50 late fee per session.

FALL 2014: See Tuition Fee Information sheet (fall 2014)

  • No invoices are mailed. Check your PRISM  account for balance due.
  • Once you are registered, you are responsible for your tuition. If your plans change and you will not be attending, you must fully withdraw - the date that is recorded in PRISM is your official withdrawal date. 
  • Tuition must be received (not postmarked) on the due date.
  • For Fall 2014, the payment deadline is September 15, 2014.
  • Unless you have officially withdrawn, you are responsible for 100% of your tuition.
  • Students are not withdrawn from school for non-payment of tuition.
  • To avoid Late Fees, choose one of the payment options below:

Option 1 - Full Payment-Cash, check or money order can be paid in the Business Office.  Credit card and web check payments are accepted ONLY online. We accept MasterCard and Discover.  There is a 2.5% convenience fee on the payment made for each credit/debit card payment made.  Payments made by web check are free, routing # and account # required.

Option 2 - Deferred Payment-For students whose financial aid has been awarded.  Financial aid may be waived if you meet certain qualifications.  Please check your PRISM account for current information as the deferment process is automated and updated nightly. If you have questions, please contact the campus Financial Aid Office.  If a balance is due, payment arrangements must be made by February 7, 2014.  It is your responsibility to monitor your financial aid processing.

Option 3 - Credit Agreement-For students who completed an agreement form in the past, your payment of $200 will automatically enroll you in the plan.  Students enrolling for the first time must submit a completed, signed form to the Business Office no later than 7pm on February 7, 2014.  There is a one-time $25 non-refundable enrollment charge.  The down-payment is $200.  Before you are officially enrolled in the plan, your signed credit agreement form  must be received in the Business Office and a $200 total payment must show on your PRISM account. 

Course Fee Information

Compressed Video & Distance Education Fees

An additional $15 per credit applies to all courses delivered via compressed video or Wisline to reflect extraordinary costs to maintain distance education equipment and networks.

Audit Fees

The fee schedule for audit courses is approximately 30% of resident fees and 50% of non-resident fees. Wisconsin residents, age 60 and over, may audit courses at no charge. (Special course fees still apply.) If enrolled for both credit and audit courses, all credits will be assessed at the credit rate.  Fall semester 2013 audit fees are estimated to be $59 per credit for Wisconsin residents.
