Courses must be paid for in full by the term due date to avoid finance charges and fees. 

  • Payments must be made in U.S. dollars.
  • Payment options include check, e-check, money order, debit or credit card (American Express, MasterCard, Discover, and Visa)
  • You can also use financial aid, military benefits, employer vouchers, and third-party payments, but these have longer processing times.
  • Textbook costs are not included in tuition and fees. Financial aid is not disbursed until after the start of classes, so you will have to pay for your textbooks out of pocket, and then reimburse yourself once your financial aid is disbursed.
     

Debit or Credit Card

We accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express. To make your payment, have your debit or credit card ready, then:

  1. Click on “Make a Payment" under the FINANCIALS menu in the left navigation of your PASS CX Dashboard.
  2. Follow the instructions to complete your payment. Make sure your pop-up blocker is disabled.
  3. Do not forget to click the SUBMIT button to complete the payment process.
  4. A reference number will be provided at the end of the process. If you do not receive this number, your payment has not processed successfully. If you have a failed payment, it may look like you have a pending payment at your financial institution; however, a failed payment means the payment was not processed and ultimately did not apply to your account in PASS. If you wait 2-7 days, your financial institution will no longer show the pending payment. You will be assessed a convenience fee to pay by debit or credit card.
     

E-Check

To make your payment, have your bank routing number and account number ready, then:

  1. Click on “Make a Payment" under the FINANCIALS menu in the left navigation of your PASS CX Dashboard.
  2. Follow the instructions to complete your payment.
  3. Do not forget to click the SUBMIT button to complete the payment process.
  4. A reference number will be provided at the end of the process. If you do not receive this number, your payment has not processed successfully. There is no convenience fee when paying by e-check.
     

Personal Check

To mail your payment:

  1. Click on “Employer Reimbursement Statement*" under the FINANCIALS menu in the left navigation of your PASS CX Dashboard.
    1. *This statement can be used for more than employer reimbursement.
  2. Enter the desired term and click on the PROCESS button.
  3. When processing is complete, click on the VIEW RESULTS button and print a copy.
  4. Please note: This statement may not include all charges on your account. Please compare the statement amount to the amount listed under “What I Owe” and adjust the payment, if needed. Make your check for the entire amount due payable to University of Wisconsin-Platteville.
  5. Send the Employer Reimbursement Statement and your check to:
    University of Wisconsin-Platteville
    Cashier's Office
    236 Brigham Hall
    1 University Plaza
    Platteville, WI 53818

 

Payment Options that Require Additional Processing Time

If you plan to use one of the options below, you should register at least THREE WEEKS before the registration deadline to ensure enough time to complete paperwork.

Financial Aid
If you are fully admitted to an undergraduate degree program, you may qualify for federal and/or state financial aid, including loans and grants. Eligibility for grants and/or loans is determined after you complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

To request a paper copy, visit Federal Student Aid or call 800.4.FED.AID (800.433.3243).

Assistance with Financial Aid
Visit Financial Aid to learn how financial aid works, your options, and your payment responsibilities if you accept financial aid. For questions regarding financial aid, please contact the UW-Platteville Financial Aid Office at finaid@uwplatt.edu or 800.616.0412. Be sure to indicate that you are taking classes at a distance.

Financial Aid Eligibility
All international students and students who are not fully admitted into a program as a degree-seeking student are not eligible for financial aid. This includes but is not limited to special students, tentative, conditional, trial, and discretionary admits.

Military Benefits
Due to the number of benefit programs and their complexity, it is vital that you contact the Wright Center for Non-traditional and Veteran Students (CNTVS) at veterans@uwplatt.edu or 608.342.7351 to receive assistance. The CNTVS can also put you in touch with other resources. Please identify yourself as a prospective or current distance learning student in any communications with the CNTVS or your local county veterans' service officer.

Visit Veterans Education Benefits for details and steps to get started.

Purchase Order, Voucher, or Other Payment from a Third Party

Many employers offer tuition benefits to their employees. To see what your company offers, the human resources department is the best place to start.

Benefits typically fall into one of three categories: employee reimbursement, tuition vouchers, and purchase orders.

  • Employee reimbursement requires you as the student/employee to pay for the course out of pocket, and then seek reimbursement from your company according to their requirements and guidelines.
  • Tuition vouchers are issued by your company at the time you register for your course. UW-Platteville then invoices your company and they will submit payment for the course prior to the start of the course.
  • Purchase orders work much the same way as tuition vouchers.

No matter what type of tuition benefit your company offers, the process typically starts with you, as the employee, requesting the benefit from your company. Here are some helpful hints:

  • Start Early. Employers typically accept benefit applications within 60 days of the class start date. We suggest starting the process early, as it often involves multiple signatures and approvals. If for any reason your sponsor does not pay, you are responsible for paying your entire balance.
  • Utilize your Employer Reimbursement Statement. The Employer Reimbursement Statement was developed in PASS specifically for the employer tuition benefit process. Once you have registered for your course, you can generate your Employer Reimbursement Statement, which should have all of the information your employer needs.

If you have any questions on using your employer tuition benefits, contact disted@uwplatt.edu or 800.362.5460.
