A $100 deposit, payable by cash or check, is required for undergraduate students each term prior to registration for Fall or Spring terms. New students can also make the payment electronically if they have an Enrollment Deposit Due line on their eSIS account. They can do this through Admissions. The $100 deposit requirement does not apply to graduate students or J-Term or Summer sessions.
Using financial aid from the current term to pay the deposit is not allowed.
The initial $100 payment will be held for future term deposits, but students must use eSIS self-service to roll the deposit forward to the next term. Once a selection is made for a given term it cannot be electronically altered. Rolling deposits to future terms begin after the fifth week of the current term.
When a deposit is rolled to a future term, the student must also electronically sign the UWRF Fee Payment Policy and Agreement in eSIS in order to be eligible to register.
In addition to the $100 registration deposit, all prior term balances must be paid in full to be eligible to register.
Enrollment and registration deposits will apply to open charges if a deposit is not needed for future terms and the student requests a refund or application to his/her student account using self service. If there is any registration activity prior to the beginning of the term, $50 becomes nonrefundable. After the term begins, the university refund policy applies rather than the deposit policy.
Registration holds will be placed on all accounts that do not have a deposit for the upcoming Fall or Spring term one week before priority registration begins. Holds will be enforced through the fifth week of the term. Rolling deposits will not be allowed during this time to avoid registration holds for the current term in case schedule changes are needed. After the fifth week, all deposit holds will be removed for the current term. Holds will not be placed on J-Term or Summer sessions.
