Fee Information

Winterim fees will be billed along with your spring semester bill. Full payment of Winterim fees must be received in the Bursar's Office by the due date to avoid finance charges. Any Winterim fees that are not paid in full by the due date will be charged finance charges assessed from the first day of the spring term. Additional fee and deadline information can be found on the Accounts Receivable website.

Refunds will be prorated based on the date of course withdrawal. There are some special course fees beyond tuition due to the extra expense of offering the course. Such fees are noted in the course schedule and are not refunded after the first day of class. 

    Final Examinations

    Final examinations will normally be the last day of classes or as otherwise determined by the instructor.

    Financial Aid

    Winterim is not considered a term, however, if you are enrolled for the academic year or in either the spring or preceding fall semester, we may be able to offer you additional aid to cover the cost.  Contact the Enrollment Services Center for further information.

    There is no special financial aid for Winterim. Upon request, tuition and fee expenses related to this session will be added to your academic year cost for aid determination purposes. Typically, it will not be possible to increase financial aid to cover these additional costs (no grants are available for this), although an additional Stafford loan may be arranged in cases where the maximum loan has not already been secured. If you have not received the maximum academic year loan already, you may meet with a financial aid adviser to determine how much additional loan award is possible for enrollment in Winterim. For more information on Financial Aid, go to http://www.uwsp.edu/finaid/.
     

    Grades and Enrollment Status 

    The Winterim is a separate session. The credits for which you enroll will not count toward determining your enrollment status for either the fall or spring terms. Also, Winterim grades will not be used in determining your fall or spring semester GPA. Winterim grades can be used to improve your academic standing but you cannot be placed on academic probation or suspension as a result of your Winterim grades. To view your grade report, go to https://mypoint.uwsp.edu/regrec/regrec059/default.aspx


    Housing

    University housing is available on a limited basis for $12.00/evening for the Winterim period. Contact Residential Living (346-3511) for additional information and reservation materials. Assignment location will be based upon the number of students participating in Winterim and in our traditional interim break housing.
     

    Overloads

    As a general rule, you should plan to carry no more than one (1) credit per week of instruction. 
     

    Parking

    If you purchased a parking permit for the school year, your permit is valid during the Winterim Session. If you do not have a permit, you may purchase one for the three week Winterim for $22.90. Parking is also available in metered lots. For more information on parking, go to http://www.uwsp.edu/parking/.
     

    Textbook Rental 

    Text Rental is a unique service available to undergraduate students at UWSP. It is a rental library system where students check out most of their course books and return them at the end of the term. The rental fee is included in tuition.

    Winterim rental book checkout is available the first day of class and all rental books are due back by the LAST day of class.  Students NOT returning rental books by the last day of class will be billed for the books and assessed a $3.00 processing fee. (You then own the books.) The University Store and Text Rental Winterim hours are Monday-Friday 8:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. A UWSP PointCard and enrollment are required for all rental textbook processing.
     

    Weather Conditions
