Late Initial Enrollment Fee Policy

A late initial enrollment fee of $50 is assessed to all students who conduct their first enrollment activity after a specific date each term.

For all students except Specials and Guests, the date is generally the Friday of the first week of the Regular Session.

For Special and Guest students, the date is generally the Friday of the second week of the Regular Session.

For specific dates for a given term, see Deadlines at a Glance

Appeal of the Late Initial Enrollment Fee

Assessment of the $50 late initial enrollment fee may be appealed by the student to the Tuition Assessment section of the Registrar's Office, 333 East Campus Mall #10101, (608) 262-4031, tuition@em.wisc.edu. Documentation must be provided by the student which clearly demonstrates that they were not at fault for failure to meet the appropriate deadline date. The fee will not be waived if it is deemed that the student could have met the deadline date.

It is the student's responsibility to appeal any late initial enrollment fee they have been assessed. The student can appeal the fee by sending an email to tuition@em.wisc.edu with an explanation as to why the fee should be waived. Deans or Departments may send supporting documentation to explain any delay they are aware of that contributed to the late enrollment. If the Tuition Assessment section concurs with the student, the fee will be waived. Backdating of the 'add date' is no longer necessary via a Deans Action or Course Change Request form.
