General Information

Before You Arrive

APPLY FOR HOUSING

Please be sure you apply for housing.

Check Your E-mail

You were assigned a UWGB e-mail account upon admission. Various University offices will be communicating with you via your UWGB student e-mail account. You must check it periodically. Information regarding accessing your e-mail account can be found on the Information Technology website.

Explore the Student Information System

Most of your university business will be conducted through the Student Information System (SIS). Certain functions related to payment and registration happen through SIS, so it's a good idea to get to know your way around.

Apply for Your Visa

Review your Certificate of Eligibility (form I-20) carefully. Contact the United States Embassy or Consulate in your home country to schedule a visa interview. Submit the Student Exchange Visitor Information Program I-901 form and fee to the Department of Homeland Security at least three business days prior to your interview at the US Embassy or Consulate. The form and fee may be processed online using a credit card. Learn more.

Tell Us Your Arrival Information

Arrival Information is required. Tell UW-Green Bay when you are arriving by submitting your arrival form.

When You Arrive

Arriving

Free pick-up services are provided for students arriving into Green Bay during the dates provided below only. On campus housing is not available until the first date of pick-up. Therefore, if you arrive early, you must find another place to stay overnight and you must find your own transportation from the airport or bus station.

Tell us when you are arriving.

Pick-up Dates

The pick up dates are usually in last August. More details will be sent to you about arranging for your arrival.

Arriving by Plane

Arriving by plane, students can fly into Green Bay Austin Straubel International Airport (GRB).

Arriving by Bus

If you will not fly into/arrive at Green Bay Austin Straubel International Airport, you will need to take a bus to the Green Bay Greyhound Bus station.

Orientation

All new international students must attend the Office of International Education (OIE) Orientation Program prior to the start of their first semester. There are many resources, people, and services in place at UW-Green Bay to help with the transition to the new surroundings. This program introduces students to these opportunities as well as outlines student expectations at UW-Green Bay.

Note: If you do not come to orientation, your housing will be canceled, you will be charged for early move in fees, and you will have trouble registering for classes.

The orientation schedule is found on the Office of International Education website.

Paying Tuition

Tuition and fees are due 7 days after the start of the semester.

Payment Options

Payments can be made through a partner company called peerTransfer. PeerTransfer allows you to pay in your home currency (in most cases) and will save you money. You will be notified via e-mail when your payment is received. To access peerTransfer, go to uwgb.peertransfer.com. You will need your 9 digit Campus ID to complete the process.

Other Options

*There is a 2.5% surcharge for credit card payments.

Tuition and fees for non-residents can be found on the Bursar's Office website.

Note: To pay the student fees, the student must log onto their SIS account to pay your Tuition and fees.
