Additional Information

The $25/credit online course fee is refundable through the last day of registration. Tuition rates are the same for Wisconsin residents and non-residents. View the UW Colleges Online Academic Calendar for registration deadlines.


Follow the payment instructions carefully, as you will not receive an invoice.



Please note, if you register for both Summer and Fall courses, tuition payment will be credited first to the Summer term until the tuition 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 contact UW Colleges Online.
