Understanding my student E-bill.

  • Each time a new E-bill is created, students will be sent an email message informing them that their E-bill statement is available to view online. You will need your UWSP logon and password to access your E-bill.

  • When viewing your statement pay close attention to the closing date and due date of the statement. Note that billing activity and payments processed after the date of the bill will not appear on the billing statement until the next billing date.

  • Students can view their billing-payment activity 24/7 on “myPoint”.

  • Your “myPoint” balance may not be the same as your last E-bill balance. “myPoint” will continue to update nightly with new information.

  • “myPoint” will not show the E-bill due date, you will need to refer to your most recent E-bill.

  • Printed statements are not mailed to currently enrolled students. UWSP does not mail, or e-mail statements to parents or other third parties under any circumstance.


What is "myPoint"?

By logging on to: http://mypoint.uwsp.edu you can check your account detail and balance, apply for direct deposit, make payments, check your financial aid, view your class schedule and text rental book list as well as other vital information.


When do I need a registration deposit?

A $100.00 registration deposit and payment of all previous balances are required before you can register for any future semester at UWSP. HWM/HIMT programs are exempt from the $100 registration deposit.


May I pay with a credit card?

YES, UWSP accepts AMERICAN EXPRESS, DISCOVER, MASTERCARD and VISA via the internet. Students and Parents can make credit card payments and “E” payments.

A convenience fee of 2.5% of the payment amount will be accessed.  Two line items will appear on your credit card statement. Your tuition payment will appear as "University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point" and the convenience fee will appear as "Tuition Convenience Fee".

Log on at www.uwsp.edu/billpay and follow the instructions for paying online.


Why isn't my financial aid on my first bill?

If you have been awarded financial aid and you have completed all of the required steps, and complied with all additional information requested, your financial aid will be applied to your student account prior to the first day of classes. All grants, Direct Loans and Perkins Loan funds will be applied directly to your student account.

Please note: Financial aid will not be applied to your account before the first bill of each semester is processed. To determine your financial obligation, refer to your awards letter (or view your awards on "myPoint".) Subtract any grants and loans awarded for that semester from the amount of your bill.


What if my financial aid is more than my student bill?

When your financial aid exceeds the amount of your bill, you may be eligible for a refund. You can receive this refund in the form of a check, or via direct deposit. You can apply for direct deposit at "myPoint".


Which method of refund is more efficient?

We strongly recommend that students sign up for direct deposit. You will be sent an email showing the dollar amount to be deposited to your account on the following business day. If you decide not to use direct deposit, your refund check will be mailed to your local address. You are responsible for keeping your address current with UWSP.

WARNING: A wrong address can cause you costly delays. Refund checks and other important items may be mailed to your local address, during the semester. Please make sure your address is correct. You may verify and change your address at “myPoint”.


What happens if I withdraw from UWSP?

Session length (weeks) Week 1 Week 2 Week 3 Week 4 Week 5+
12 + 100% 100% 50% 50% 0%
8-11 100% 50% 25% 0% 0%
5-7 100% 50% 0% 0% 0%
3 & 4 100% 25% 0% 0% 0%
2 100% 0% 0% 0% 0%

WARNING!! Dropping and adding classes may increase your cost. Courses dropped after the 100% refund periods are included in the total credits used for fee calculation. Courses dropped and added after this period do not offset each other for cost purposes; therefore, your semester cost may increase.

SPECIAL NOTE TO FINANCIAL AID RECIPIENTS WHO WITHDRAW: You may have to repay all or a portion of the aid received and/or forfeit your financial aid eligibility. Contact the Financial Aid Office if you have any questions.


How do I cancel my registration?

Continuing students, if you have registered for classes but have decided not to attend UWSP, you must notify the Enrollment Services Center in writing. Notification must be received prior to the date listed in your registration material to receive a refund of your $100.00 registration deposit.

New freshmen and transfer students are required to notify the Admissions office prior to May 1st for Fall registrations and mid-November for Spring registrations to receive a full refund of their $100.00 enrollment deposit. Late notification will result in a forfeiture of your deposit.

Not attending classes does not cancel your registration. You must contact the housing office to cancel room and board charges.


Do I have to pay the Campus fees?

All campus fees are mandatory. Academic fees include both instructional costs, determined by the Board of Regents, and campus fees. Campus fee information is located at: http://www.uwsp.edu/stuaffairs/Pages/segregatedfees.aspx

Tax Reporting Information-1098T

The Taxpayer Relief Act of 1997 created a number of new education tax incentives, including the Hope Scholarship and Lifelong Learning tax credits and a limited deduction for interest paid on student loans.

Under the Taxpayer Relief Act the term “qualified tuition and related expenses” means the tuition and fees an individual is required to pay in order to be enrolled at or attend an eligible institution. Charges and fees associated with room and board do not qualify as a tuition or related expense.

If you have questions, please consult your personal tax advisor, or the IRS.

The university cannot provide tax advice.
