OTHER IMPORTANT INFORMATION:

If You Are Registering For Graduate Credit, Please Note The Following: Admission to a degree program is not required for students taking courses. "Graduate Special" is the designation for students taking courses for personal enrichment or certification. The only requirement for this status is a baccalaureate degree from an accredited institution. The student certifies this status during each registration process. Neither a graduate school application nor transcript is required. However, students who intend to pursue a master's degree should apply for admission as a "Graduate Regular" student, preferably during their first semester. This is important because a maximum of nine (9) credit hours earned as "Graduate Special" may apply to a degree program, and then only with the permission of the Graduate Degree Program.

LATE REGISTRATION:

Late registration and walk-ins are strongly discouraged because you may find the class full. If you register after the second class meeting, you will be assessed a $20.00 late fee.

COURSE CONFIRMATION:

When possible, confirmation letters will be sent to registrants electronically. Please provide your email address. Confirmations will be sent to registrants either approximately one week prior to the start of the course. Read this letter carefully for any information you need to know prior to the first class meeting.

COURSE CANCELLATIONS:

UWSP Continuing Education courses are taught contingent upon enrollment. The decision is made approximately two weeks prior to the course start date. If the enrollment is low, usually less than 12 graduate students or 21 undergraduates or a combination thereof, it is possible that the course will be cancelled. REGISTER EARLY to increase the chances that the class or site you want will be held!!!

We reserve the right to cancel a course due to insufficient enrollment; in this case, a full refund will be granted.

WITHDRAWALS AND REFUND POLICY:

Cancellations (before the class begins) and withdrawals (after the class begins) must be submitted in writing to UWSP Continuing Education. Cancellations have no fees due. The percentage of refund for withdrawals is based on time of notification. Please call to notify us of your intent to cancel or withdraw, followed by a letter (as required by state auditors) or you can go to our web site shown and submit the withdrawal form online. Instructors are not responsible for advising UWSP Continuing Education of student withdrawals. Failure to officially complete changes may result in "F" grades or loss of credit.

All students withdrawing from classes will be assessed the following withdrawal fees: Withdrawals effective the first week of classes will be assessed $50.00. Withdrawals effective the second week of classes will be assessed $100.00. In addition, fee reductions for a complete official withdrawal from the university will be made according to the following percentages in the chart below:

Session Length Withdrawal During Week Number
1 2 3 4 5+
