Excess Credit Surcharge
Wisconsin resident undergraduate students who have earned 165 credits (or 30 credits more than required for their degree programs, whichever is greater) will be charged a surcharge, equal to 100 percent of the regular resident tuition (e.g., tuition would double) on all credits beyond that level.
This policy was created by the UWS Board of Regents and covers all Wisconsin resident undergraduate students pursuing their first bachelors degree, including students pursuing a double major. Non-residents (including Minnesota), graduate, post-baccalaureate, and non-degree students are not affected.
The policy applies to all transferable credits earned at UW campuses and WTCS (Wisconsin Technical College System) transfer credits. Non-course credits, such as AP, CLEP, credits-by-confirming course, etc. do not count toward the total.
The surcharge is applied in the semester following the one in which a student reaches the earned credit limit. Every student has the right to appeal the surcharge. If you wish to obtain information on filing an appeal, contact the Registrar, James Barrett, at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 715-836-3887.
