UW-GREEN BAY DOES NOT SEND PAPER BILLS TO CURRENTLY ENROLLED STUDENTS. EMAIL NOTIFICATION, via the student’s campus email address, will be sent to alert students of charges on their SIS account.  The email will only be sent to students who have a balance due. The email notification will direct students and parents/guests to this web page which will provide specific billing information for the current term. See the “Email Notification Schedule” link below to see when to expect the billing emails.

GUEST ACCESS as an "Authorized Party" allows students to grant access to parents or others as an 'authorized party' through our online payment vendor , Nelnet Business Solutions (NBS) where they can view the student's financial account and make electronic payments.
Students, for information on setting up "Authorized Party" see "Intro to E-Billing-Students" below. Parents/others, for information on using "Authorized Party" see "Intro to E-Billing-Guests" below.

The STUDENT INFORMATION SYSTEM (SIS) is the sole source of student financial information.  The student and/or guest will need to go to their SIS account to see due dates and charges due. There is a SIS link provided both below and in the menu to the left.

If you have any questions, please contact the Student Billing Office by emailing bursar@uwgb.edu, calling 920-465-2224, or use the left side navigation bar to browse other important information.

      Click or go to: uwgb.peertransfer.com to begin the payment process.  

      To get started, select the country from which funds will be coming and the payment amount in US dollars you wish to make to your student bill.

      • You will need your nine (9) digit UWGB Campus ID number.
      • In most cases, the US dollar amount will be converted into your home currency at preferential exchange rates, which will translate into savings for you.
      • After providing some additional basic information, you will book the transaction and will be instructed via email on how to pay Flywire (peerTransfer) from your home country bank account.
      • Flywire (peerTransfer) will then forward the US dollar amount to the University of Wisconsin - Green Bay where it will be directly credited to your student billing account.
      • You will receive an email to confirm receipt of payment
      • At any time, you will have a dedicated customer service team reachable via chat, Skype, email and phone to answer any of your questions
