UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN River Falls
The University does not generate paper bills for students. The student's bill is available on their eSIS approximately 1 month prior to the start of the term. An e-mail will be automatically generated when charges appear and sent to the student's UWRF e-mail account. A student not receiving/accessing an e-mail is not excused from not paying their bill on the posted due date this is because the bill is available on their eSIS account.
If a student is using financial assistance to pay all or part of their bill it is their responsibility to check their eSIS account to find the amount of pending aid and deduct that from their total balance. The balance remaining is treated the same as a student not using financial aid.
The University automatically enters students into a partial payment plan if they pay at least 1/3 of their balance due by the first posted due date for the term (1/3 of the balance remaining after subtracting the financial aid). The student can make two more payments of at least 1/3 of the remaining balance by the 2nd and 3rd due date.
There is a $75 late fee assessed to every account that does not have at least 1/3 of the bill paid by the first due date. A 1% finance charge (1.25% finance charge as of September 1st, 2015) is assessed every month on any balances left unpaid starting after the 2nd payment date posted.
If a student has not paid in full by the final due date of the term, a hold is placed on their account. This hold will prevent them from registering for future terms at UWRF until their account has been paid in full. Even if the student makes arrangements to get payment to us, the hold will stay on their account until there is a $0 balance.
New freshman and first time transfer students are required to have a $100 enrollment deposit on their account before they can register for classes.
