Fee Information 2011-12
Spring Semester classes begin Monday, January 23, 2012. An invoice for semester tuition and fees will NOT be mailed to students. Students are strongly advised to make use of the PRISM on-line program to access and monitor information regarding tuition and account balances, financial aid, and payments. Call the Business Services Office at 920-832-2613, or stop in for information about your fees if you are not clear about the amount due. If you have questions regarding the courses for which you are registered, call the Student Affairs Office at 920-832-2620.
Registration and Financial Liability
Upon registration for classes, you are considered financially committed to UW-Fox Valley. This means if you want to withdraw from any or all of your classes you must officially withdraw by contacting Student Affairs or you will owe full tuition and fees. The balance of fees owed must be paid at the time of registration or before the end of the second week of classes. A $100 late payment fee will be assessed for failure to pay the balance by the due date, or failure to enroll in the payment plan (which requires a $200 down payment and signed agreement) by the due date, or failure to receive a financial aid deferment by the due date.

Wisconsin residents age 60 or over may audit courses at no charge.
If you decide to drop a class or to not attend any classes, your fees will NOT be adjusted until you officially drop the course(s). Students who do not attend the FIRST class meeting of a course MAY be dropped from that course. There is no refund for courses dropped after February 19, 2012. Classes meeting less than 12 weeks have a shorter period for refunds. Consult with the Business Services Office for details. Course Drop and withdrawals can be done directly from your PRISM account. The date PRISM shows you dropped/withdrew is the official date of your action. If you drop or withdraw by mail, the postmark date is the official date. If you received financial aid and withdraw from the university, repayment of your financial aid may be required.
Withdrawal from spring classes between December 1, 2012 and February 5, 2012 requires payment of a $100 withdrawal fee.

Withdrawal made on or after February 6, 2012, requires payment of 50% of class fees; withdrawal after February 19, 2012, requires payment of 100% of class fees.
A payment plan is available to extend tuition payment over a period of time.
