Registration and Financial Liability

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 Terms and Conditions agreement) by the due date, or failure to receive a financial aid deferment by the due date.

Payment of Fees

Payment must be received on or before September 15, 2014. Payment may be made by cash, check, or money order. Make checks payable to UW-Fox Valley. Be sure to include your name and student identification number or social security number on the check. For checks returned because of non-sufficient funds, there is a $20 charge, plus any financial institution charges. If the check is made good after September 15, 2014, there will be an addition $100 late payment fee assessed to your account.

Payment by credit card (Visa, Master Card or Discover) may be made only through your PRISM account, and will include a service fee of 2.5% of the amount you are paying. You may also pay by electronic check through your PRISM account with no service fee.

Pay your fees by mail for your convenience and to avoid lines. Address your envelope to: Business Services Office, UW-Fox Valley, 1478 Midway Road, Menasha, WI 54952-1297. To receive a receipt, include a self-addressed stamped envelope.

Note that delivery of financial aid is not permitted before September 15, 2014. At the time of delivery the amount of tuition and fees owed to the university will be deducted from the aid you are to receive. Any balance will be mailed to your home address.

Academic Misconduct

Academic honesty and integrity is expected of all students enrolled at UWFox. You have the obligation to conduct your academic work according to University standards.

You have the right to expect that you will be graded fairly, and have the right of due process should you be accused of misconduct. It is your responsibility to become familiar with the rules of academic misconduct according to UW Administrative Code, Chapter 14. Detailed information pertaining to academic misconduct and other student rights and regulations is available on the campus web page.

Adding Courses

Students may add courses by using on-line enrollment (PRISM) during the first two weeks of a semester, the first week of an eight-week course, and during a proportionate time for shorter courses. Adds are not allowed for on-line classes once on-line registration closes. Once the semester begins, permission from the instructor will be required to add a class. The date the add is processed in PRISM is the effective date for official records and billing. Adds after the dates listed below must be presented to the Student Affairs Office.

The last day to add courses is:

  • Fall 2014 Semester: September 5, 2014
  • Spring 2015 Semester: February 6, 2015

Dropping Courses

Students may drop one or more courses by using the online enrollment (PRISM) during the first 10 weeks of a semester without incurring a failing grade. A grade of "W" (Withdrawn) is recorded for courses officially dropped after the second week of classes. Students who do not meet the prerequisite for a course may be administratively dropped from that course. Courses that do not meet the full semester will have a different drop date. Check with Student Affairs regarding earlier drop dates.

The last day to drop a class with a W grade is:

  • Fall 2014 Semester: November 10, 2014
  • Spring 2015 Semester: April 10, 2015

No Show Policy-Dropping for Non-appearance

Students who do not appear for the first session of each class for which they are registered will be dropped from the roster unless they have given prior notice to the instructor. It is the responsibility of the student to drop or withdraw from a course to insure proper processing of records. Withdrawal as a result of non-appearance will result in assessment of a $100 withdrawal fee.

Auditing Courses

A student may change from audit to credit in a course during the first two weeks of a semester or change from credit to audit status during the first 10 weeks of a semester. Some courses cannot be taken on an audit basis. Check with the Student Affairs Office.

Repeating Courses

Students may repeat courses to improve grade point average or to improve their foundations before taking succeeding courses in a discipline. Repeated classes will be flagged in PRISM.

Withdrawal

Withdrawal is the term used to describe the termination of registration in all courses for the semester. Simply not attending classes does not constitute a withdrawal, excluding no show for the first class meeting. Withdrawal is permitted within the first 10 weeks of classes of the semester (or within a shorter period for sessions less than 16 weeks). Withdrawal after June 30 for fall semester and November 30 for spring semester will result in assessment of a $100 withdrawal fee. Withdrawal after those periods requires partial or full payment of tuition (see Fee Information for details).

Students wishing to withdraw from all courses may complete this transaction through their PRISM account. Some students may be required to meet with an advisor prior to withdrawal. Any student who does not officially withdraw will receive a grade of "F" in every course in which the student is enrolled.

Withdrawal during a semester may result in loss of eligibility as outlined in the section of the UW Colleges catalog. Contact the Student Affairs Office for further information about withdrawing. The last date to withdraw from the university is same as the drop dates above.

Students who are identified as needing developmental course work due to placement test results must successfully complete the remedial course work prior to completing 30 credits.

The English and mathematics tests are each 90 minutes long. Students may register to take one only or both tests on pending the test date available. Students wishing to enroll in a language course beyond Semester I are required to take a language placement test for that particular language. To view test date and make a reservation to take a placement test visit our website at www.uwfox.uwc.edu/admreg/placement.html. Students are to arrive promptly and bring two No. 2 pencils.

Registration

See Your Advisor Before Registration!

All students with less than 30 credits (including current semester) must meet with an advisor prior to registering for classes. It is suggested that all students meet with an advisor. Students are further encouraged to develop a meaningful relationship with their advisor by discussing concerns and goals in selecting courses to meet requirements for their chosen major. Advisors are assigned based on the sub-plan (major). To determine who your advisor is, check your PRISM account. A listing of advisors with office numbers and e-mail addresses can also be found at www.uwfox.uwc.edu. If your advisor is in the Student Affairs Office, an appointment can be made by contacting the Student Affairs office at 832-2620. If your advisor is a faculty member or instructional academic staff, contact the professor by e-mail or during their posted office hours.

Every continuing student will be assigned a specific start time for registration. These registration times are assigned during early registration (see below) by the number of credits a student has completed. Check your PRISM account for your enrollment appointment (registration date and time). Once registered, a student wanting to withdraw must complete the withdrawal process as explained in this course schedule under the Academic Information Section.

Registration for new students

All students new to UWFox with less than 30 earned credits will be required to register for and attend a new student orientation and registration session called FOCUS (Fox Orientation Creates Understanding for Success). Detailed information regarding orientation sessions and registration and fees will be provided with admission materials.

Fees And Tuition

Registration for classes creates a financial liability. Upon registration for classes, you are considered financially committed to UWFox. This means if you want to withdraw from any or all of your classes you must officially withdraw via your PRISM account or by contacting Student Affairs or you will owe full tuition and fees (Students will not be withdrawn for not paying the balance of tuition owed). 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) by the due date, or failure to receive a financial aid deferment by the due date.

The tuition deposit is intended to verify and ensure your intent to take classes at UWFox. Students who enroll for classes and later decide to not attend the campus unnecessarily occupy limited class enrollment spaces to the detriment of other interested students. The tuition deposit requirement is in place at most UW campuses and has been effective in reducing the number of unfulfilled enrollments at these campuses. If you have any questions about the tuition deposit, please contact the business services office.

Fees for the 2014-2015 academic year were not determined at the time of publication. The schedule below is an estimate of what costs will be. The official fee schedule is expected to be available in mid-July.

The payment deadlines for classes meeting 12 or more weeks are: Fall Semester – September 15, 2014; Spring Semester – February 6, 2015. Classes meeting less than 12 weeks have a shorter period for fee payment. Consult with the Business Services Office for details. Non-resident fees are approximately three times the amount of resident fees. Questions about residence status should be referred to the Student Affairs Office before registration.

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.

Audit-only students must have the instructor's permission before registering. The fee schedule for audit courses is approximately 30% of fees for resident fees, and 50% of non-resident fees. Wisconsin residents age 60 or over may audit courses at no charge. If enrolled for both credit and audit courses, all credits will be assessed at the credit rate. The fee schedule for audit students is available from the Business Services Office.

Payment may be made with cash or check at the business services office, or by check through the mail. Payment may be made on-line through PRISM by web check ($0 service fee) or by credit card (Master Card and Discover cards accepted, 2.5% service fee). A payment plan is available to extend tuition payment over a period of time. Participation in the plan requires payment of an enrollment fee ($25), down payment of $200 by the payment deadline ($100 in addition to the $100 tuition deposit), and completion of an installment payment agreement. Signing of the agreement and payment of the enrollment fee are required only once, and allow continuing participation in the plan during your student career at UW-Fox Valley. The down payment (by the payment deadline) is required each semester you choose to participate in the payment plan.

Non-Payment

If payment is not received by the payment due date, a late payment fee of $100 will be assessed and full tuition will be owed unless withdrawal is made by the student during a refund period. Students will not be withdrawn for not paying the balance of tuition owed by the payment due date.

Financial Aid

Financial aid information is available in Student Affairs. Students should check the UW Colleges catalog for complete descriptions of student financial aid policies and regulations.

Generally, a student must be registered for a minimum of 6 credits to be eligible for financial aid. Students who apply or are classified as Special Students by the university are not eligible to receive federal or state financial aid funds. Students must maintain satisfactory academic progress to be eligible to receive financial aid.

Information about financial aid programs and application is available through the Student Affairs office.

If you are receiving financial assistance (including federal and state financial aid, scholarships, veteran's administration support, or from other sources), you are responsible for the timely payment of your fees including the $100 tuition deposit, and full payment of fees each semester. Note that delivery of financial aid will begin approximately two weeks into the semester.

Financial aid awards will be based on the number of credits in which you are enrolled on September 15, 2014 for the fall semester and February 6, 2015 for the spring semester.

If you are not able to pay your fees on or before the end of the second week of classes, you may be eligible for a fee deferment if you have a complete financial aid file. You must apply for and receive a fee deferment at the Student Affairs Office before the end of the second week of classes. At the time of disbursement of your financial aid, the amount of fees owed to the university will be deducted from the aid you are to receive. Aid cannot be delivered to you until after your fees are paid. Any balance will be mailed to your home address.

Withdrawal: If you decide not to attend any classes for a semester, you are still responsible for the amount of your fees due based on the date you officially withdraw from the university. You may withdraw from your classes via your PRISM account, or withdrawal forms are available at the Student Affairs Office. The withdrawal date in PRISM, or the date the office receives the form is the official date of withdrawal. If you withdraw by mail, the post-mark date is the official date. Withdrawal is subject to a withdrawal fee of $100, or payment of all or part of your tuition and fees. Financial aid recipients who withdraw from classes may need to repay all or portions of the aid received and/or forfeit their financial aid eligibility.

Refund Policy

If a student withdraws from the university or drops a course, the amount of a fee refund will be prorated based on the official date of withdrawal or course drop and financial aid status. If eligible for a refund, the refund will be mailed, usually before the end of the semester. Listed below is the refund schedule. Refunds for students receiving financial aid may be returned to the financial provider, not the student.

Refund Schedule for Withdrawals or Course Drops Class Length Week 1 Week 2 Week 3 Week 4 Thereafter

Class Length Week 1 Week 2 Week 3 Week 4 Thereafter
12 weeks and over 100%* 100%* 50% 50% None

5 through 7 weeks 100%* 50% None None None
*Minus the $100 withdrawal fee.

Please contact the Business Services Office with any questions about fees or financial deadlines.

Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP)

Federal regulations require all institutions to establish academic standards that ensure students are progressing toward the completion of a degree. Students who receive financial aid are required to meet the UW Colleges SAP standards. To remain eligible to receive financial aid, students are required to meet the following three conditions:

  • Maintain a minimum cum. GPA of 2.0 after completing 48 or more credits. (There is a graduated scale for less than 48 cr.)
  • Successfully complete two-thirds of the total or cumulative credits attempted.

Students requiring religious accommodations must notify the instructor of a conflict within the first three weeks of class.

Students who believe they have been treated unfairly may file complaints in accordance with the complaint and grievance procedures adopted pursuant to Chapter 6 and 9 of the UW Colleges constitution.

Safety and Health Policy

The University of Wisconsin System will provide and maintain adequate facilities for a safe and healthy learning environment. It is the University's responsibility to work with faculty and staff so that they are equipped to educate their students on practices and procedures that ensure safety for all members of the university. Employees with instructional responsibilities are expected to comply with state and federal safety laws and regulations in their institutional areas. Certain course and research projects require that the student work with hazardous materials while engaging in academic studies. Instructors of these courses and research projects shall inform and train students on procedures that will maintain the students' personal health and safety and provide them with information on the hazards of specific chemicals that will be used during their course study. Furthermore, instructors will enforce and follow safety policies. Prior to use of hazardous materials and equipment, the student shall review the procedures and information and discuss any associated concerns with the instructor.
