The UW-Madison Bursar’s Office will send you an electronic bill (eBill) for each term to your wisc.edu email account. Designate another individual as an “Authorized Payer” in MyUW, if you want them to receive your eBill.
Your eBill will be sent approximately four weeks in advance of the target due date listed on your program cost sheet. IAP program fees are billed on the same schedule as tuition accounts. The billing schedule and due dates can be found on the Bursar’s website. The eBill shows the program fee and any payments or credits (deposits, scholarships, etc.) at the time the eBill was generated. You may incur additional charges during or after your program (e.g., single room charge, additional course fee) for which you will be billed at a later date. At any time, you can view your current account balance and financial aid awards in your MyUW.
Study abroad program fees are eligible for Badger Pay program. Otherwise, all payments must be paid by the due date on your eBill. Late payments are charged a $100 late fee. We reserve the right to cancel a student’s participation and/or to place a hold on the student’s UW-Madison record for failure to pay.
Your anticipated financial or scholarship aid will automatically apply towards the amount due stated in your eBill. If the amount of anticipated aid is less than the amount due, you only pay the difference that financial aid does not cover. If the amount of anticipated aid is equal to or more than the amount due, you do not make a payment. eBills are run multiple times during a term; students with anticipated aid may receive consecutive bills before their financial aid has paid balances.
If you have a scholarship that is not listed in your anticipated aid, even though it may show on your Award Report in MyUW, contact your Financial Specialist to receive a deferment for the scholarship amount and prevent late fees.
If you are due a refund, you can sign up for eRefund (Direct Deposit) or receive a check from the Bursar’s Office. Always make sure your mailing address is updated to that of someone who might be able to receive a check and deposit it on your behalf. This is an important safety net for you should you need to receive a refund (or pay your eBill) while abroad.
Information on payment methods and delivery, late fees, and financial aid disbursement and refunds can be found on the Bursar’s Office website.
