Other Fees

Welcome to the fine print. We're not trying to trick you or make this information intentionally obscure. The reality is that tuition doesn't cover everything in your educational experience, so we have to charge fees. We've done our best to clarify what we mean by "additional fees apply" with the items below.

Added Credits

In most situations, adding credits will result in additional fee liability. If you add and drop courses during the 100% refund period and those courses have the same credits, are of the same session length, and begin in the same week, you will not have additional fee liability. Always check your SIS account after making changes to your schedule.

Course Fees

Certain courses require special fees for materials, field trips, equipment rentals, etc. Course fees will be identified in the timetable. In most cases these fees are a non refundable obligation. You may inquire about the refund policies with the department offering the course. The Distance Education Fee of $25 per credit is only refunded during the Add/Drop period of a semester.

Distance Education Fee

Offering classes online means additional costs. To help cover these expenses, we charge a distance education fee per credit.

Graduation Fee

The graduation fee is a non-refundable fee. The fee covers academic record and security related costs including records maintenance, data storage, degree conferral, degree audit operations (contract, maintenance, upgrades, and enhancements), diploma production, student supporting software, and associated mailing costs.  All students must pay the fee whether or not they participate in the ceremony.  Fee is one-time and non-refundable. All undergraduate students are charged the one-time $45 fee once they reach 84 earned credits. All graduate students are charged the one-time $45 fee once they reach 15 earned credits. Questions regarding this fee should be addressed to gboss@uwgb.edu.

Late Add Fee

If a student petitions for permission to add a course after the add deadline, late add fees of $15 per course will be assessed if the petition is approved. Additional fees may also be due since students will be assessed for all adds and drops after the 100% refund period rather than the net result of those adds and drops. Check fee implications with Student Billing Resources, before submitting a Late Add Petition to the Registrar.

Late Payment Fee

After the payment deadline (close of business on the due date) an assessment for administrative costs (late fees) will be added to any unpaid account. Late fees are 7.00 per credit ($84.00 max). To appeal a late payment penalty, please complete the Late Payment Appeal Form and submit it to  Student Billing Resources. Please direct all questions regarding late fees to Student Billing Resources (SS 1300, 920-465-2224).

Orientation Fee

All new freshmen will be assessed a $212 fee for the GB Orientation program. The fee will cover cost associated with programs such as Registration and Resources (R and R), Summer Connections, Campus Welcome, Orientation and Major Fair.  For more details on new student orientation, see GB Orientation.

Returned Checks

Any check (paper or electronic) which is returned for non-sufficient funds (NSF) or closed account, will be subject to the appropriate fee and penalty obligations in effect. A $20 returned check charge, as allowed by Wisconsin Statute, will be assessed.

Segregated (SEG) Fees

Segregated fees fund student services, activities, programs and facilities that add up to an excellent student experience. Find out how on the Segregated Fees page.

Transfer Fee

A $60 Transfer Fee will be charged to all students transferring from another college or technical school. This is a one-time fee that is applied on your first semester charges with any of the UW-Green Bay campus locations. The fee is non-applicable to UW-Green Bay students transferring to another campus location within UW-Green Bay.
