Bursar Office - Class Cancellation                   

Cancellation Warning Emails - Fall and Spring Semesters Only

Approximately ten days before the spring and fall semester due dates, all registered students who have not met the minimum payment requirement or do not have an exemption from cancellation of registration will receive a warning e-mail. The email will be sent to the student's PantherLink account and will contain information as of a current date.

PAWS reflects your most current information.  View PAWS to see if your account meets the requirements for exemption from cancellation.   If not, immediately pay all financial obligations with a due date prior to the fall or spring tuition and fee due date  plus a minimum of $200.00 to prevent cancellation of registration.

Cancellation Notification - Fall and Spring Semesters Only

Should your registration be cancelled, a Minimum Payment Required Hold will be placed on your account.  Cancelled students will be sent correspondence from the Bursar Office that their registration was cancelled for non-payment.

Exemptions from Cancellation of Registration - Fall and Spring Semesters Only

Students who have a qualifying exemption from cancellation are not required to make the $200.00 minimum payment by the fall or spring due date.

Qualifying exemptions are:

  • Have been awarded and accepted a Financial Aid Award sufficient to cover your full fees, tuition, housing and meal plan charges by the tuition and fee due date.  The award must be visible on PAWS.
  • Have accepted at least 33% Graduate Appointment as a Teaching, Project or Research assistant and enrolled in the minimum credit requirement of your status in order for the fee remission to be visible on your PAWS account.  If you are unable to register because of a minimum payment required hold, contact your appointing department.
  • Have a 3rd Party Agreement submitted to the Accounts Receivable Office by the tuition and fee due date, authorizing payment of at least $200.00.
  • Have an Athletic, Music Clinic, Medical College or Marquette remission of at least $200.00 visible on your PAWS account.

Not all remissions qualify for exemption from cancellation.  If your remission is not listed, then decide if you have an actual qualifying exemption or pay all financial obligations with a due date prior to the tuition and fee due date plus $200.00 by the tuition and fee due date.  

If you receive one of the exemptions after cancellation of registration for non-payment, contact the Accounts Receivable or Cashiers Office if your hold is not removed within one business day.

What to do after Cancellation of Registration - Fall and Spring Semesters Only

Students whose registration was cancelled and are still interested in attending classes must pay tuition and fees in full, or enroll in the Installment Payment Plan (minimum payment of $200.00, plus pay all financial obligations with a due date prior to the tuition and fee due date).  Payments or exemptions received after cancellation do not automatically register you in your original schedule of classes.  You will need to register again for classes.  You are not guaranteed that you will be able to get in the same classes you had before cancellation.

Additional information about the Installment Payment Plan and University Credit Agreement is available on the bursar website.

A Late Registration Fee of $50.00 may be assessed upon registration after cancellation.

UWinterIM and Summer Semesters

Classes are not cancelled for non-payment during the UWinterIM and summer semesters.  No minimum payment is required for UWinterIM or summer semesters.
