Viewing your bill
Billing notifications are sent to your UW-Platteville email. Check it on a regular basis to avoid missing important information.
UW-Platteville provides all billing information electronically, with paper mailings only available under special circumstances. Always keep adequate space in your inbox. This ensures that you are able to receive all your billing notifications and are better able to make timely payments. If you’re not making your own payments, you need to forward the bill to the person who does. You can give guest access to your PASS account, but you remain responsible for paying all fees on time. Learn more about Managing Guest User Access.

Partial payment plan
The partial payment plan for fall and spring semesters consists of an initial payment of 34% of all charges billed on the initial bill, due approximately seven days after the beginning of each semester and two additional installments of 33% due approximately the fifth and ninth week of each semester. There is no partial payment plan for summer or winterim.
Exact dates are provided with each initial billing statement and on the Cashier’s Office website. A finance charge of 1% per month on the unpaid balance (annual percentage rate of 12%) will be assessed on any balance remaining from the previous bill.
All charges will have to be paid before registration for a future term will be allowed. All financial aid will be applied to the term it is awarded. Anticipated financial aid is not considered payment until the money is received by UW-Platteville and posted to your account.
Start planning now. Financial aid, loans and other assistance can take many weeks/months to process so apply early and monitor the process so your financial aid paperwork does not get delayed and hold up your registration for future semesters/terms.
