UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN River Falls

Frequently Asked Questions
How do I pay my bill?

If you would like to pay online please log into your eSIS account then scroll down to the section labeled finances there should be a yellow "Make a Payment" button.  Please click that button and it should take you to the payment screen in which you can fill out all of your information.  You may mail in a cash or check payment to the Student Billing Office. We do not accept any payments over the phone. You may also come to 215 North Hall and pay cash or check in person. 

How do I set up Direct Deposit?

After logging in to your eSIS account on your Student Center under the Finances section, in the middle of the page, there is a blue link that labeled "Direct Deposit Signup". Please click this link and follow the directions it provides. 

Note: The recommended browser for doing this is Firefox or Internet Explorer 9--signup on other browsers tends not to work and causes errors. We recommend students to use the Firefox browser to complete the signup.

What forms of payment does the university accept?

UWRF accepts check and cash payments at our Student Billing Office at 215 North Hall .  However, you can also make an e-check or credit card payment through your eSIS account. (UWRF accepts Mastercard, Discover, and American Express. Please note that a 2.75% surcharge will be added to credit card payments. You will see the surcharge amount on the second screen, before your payment is submitted.)

Does my money from financial aid come directly to me?

The disbursement of financial aid comes directly to the school and then posts to the student accounts.  The funds pay your tuition balance first and if there is an overpayment of financial aid, the difference is refunded to you.  The fastest way to get a refund is to sign up for direct deposit.  Direct Deposit is MANDATORY for all students. Please log into your eSIS account to make sure you are fully signed up for Direct Deposit.

When will I get my bill in the mail?

The University of Wisconsin-River Falls does not send paper bills in the mail.  All bills are submitted electronically to the student's eSIS account prior to the due date.  The student will get an e-mail in their UWRF e-mail account notifying their bill has arrived and they need to check it in their eSIS account.

Can I get any discounts on my tuition?

UWRF offers a variety of tuition discount programs. Minnesota students can sign up for Minnesota Reciprocity which allows them to attend college here in Wisconsin for the same price they would pay to attend a state university in Minnesota. The Return to Wisconsin program offers a tuition discount to non-resident children and grandchildren of alumni who have received a degree from the University of Wisconsin-River Falls. Even residents of Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, and Michigan can receive a discounted tuition rate through the Midwest Student Exchange program.
