Cancellation of Enrollment/Registration

You are expected to complete the courses for which you register. If you decide you do not want to take a course, you MUST follow the Drop/Add/Withdrawal procedures established by the University to OFFICIALLY DROP the course. If you never attend or stop attending a course and fail to officially withdraw from the university, you will receive an F in the course at the end of the semester.

Attendance Policy


Registration Deposit Refund Policy

While attending UWSP, circumstances may arise that require a student to withdraw from the university. If you are considering withdrawing, you are encouraged to consult with your advisor prior to completing the official withdrawal process so that you may discuss the best possible outcomes for your individual circumstances. 

The $100 registration deposit will be refunded only if you notify the Enrollment Services Center in writing 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.

Please note that new freshman and transfer students must notify the Admissions office in writing before May 1 (prior to the start of the fall term) and November 15 (prior to the start of spring term) to be eligible for a refund.

  • Fall 2014: August 15, 2014
