Cancellation of Enrollment

Circumstances may arise that require a student to cancel their enrollment at the university. A cancellation occurs prior to the start of a term. If you are already here and have been taking classes (i.e. a continuing student), you are encouraged to consult with your advisor prior to completing the official cancelation process so that you may discuss the best possible outcomes for your individual circumstances. If the term has already started, you will need to follow the withdrawal policy.

Enrollment/Registration Deposit Refund Policy

For new freshmen and transfer students, the $100 enrollment deposit will be refunded only if you notify the Admissions Office in writing before May 1 (prior to the start of the fall term) or November 15 (prior to the start of spring term). Written requests can be sent to

For continuing students, the $100 registration deposit will be refunded only if you notify the Enrollment Services Center in writing (Cancellation Form) that you are canceling your registration prior to the dates listed below. All students cancelling after the specified cancellation deadline or withdrawing from UWSP will be held financially responsible for a minimum of $100. This will either be paid through a forfeiture of your $100 registration fee, or in the case of no registration fee, a $100 cancellation/withdrawal fee will be assessed when tuition costs are removed.
