Deposits

Submit your enrollment deposit

You've been accepted to UW-Eau Claire! One of your next important steps is to submit your enrollment deposit and hold your spot in the class. You should also submit your housing deposit (if applicable) to hold your spot in the residence halls. Follow the steps below to get all that done!

Enrollment deposit

Step 1:

Your first step is to activate your student account in My Blugold CampS, which is our main online student information system. You'll need your username and campus ID, which are found in your admit letter or application acknowledgement email.

Step 2:

After activating your account, sign into CampS. Once you've logged in, proceed with the steps below to make your online payment. Note: An online payment is the preferred method, as this is a secured transmission of payment which can be tracked. (It's also free if you choose the Bank Transfer option!)

  1. Select the "Pay Enrollment Deposit" link on the left side menu.
  2. Click "Make a Payment" on the left side menu. 
  3. Select the appropriate "Enrollment Deposit" box (either the freshman or transfer option, depending on what type of student you are).
  4. Choose the term and year you are admitted for in the drop-down menu and click "Add to Payment." The enrollment deposit will appear at the top of the "Make a Payment" screen.
    Note: If you want to pay your housing deposit as well, select the "Housing Deposit" box to add it to your payment. See the "Housing Deposit" section below for more information.
  5. Click the "Continue" button in the lower right corner of the screen.
  6. Select your preferred payment method in the drop-down menu, enter your payment information, and click "Continue."
  7. You will see a final summary page allowing you to review the payment you're about to make. Once you have confirmed your information, click the "Pay" button to complete your transaction.

Note: If you are unable to make the payment online, you may mail a check, money order, traveler's check, or bank draft. Checks and money orders should be made payable to UW-Eau Claire. Include the student name, Blugold ID number, and the term for which you are paying, as well as a note indicating if the payment is for both the enrollment and housing deposits. Mail payment to the address below:

University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, Cashier's Office
P.O. Box 5000
Eau Claire, WI 54702-5000

We encourage you to send your payment via certified return receipt so that you are able to track and ensure receipt of payment.

Housing deposit

Once you have signed into CampS, complete the following steps to make your housing deposit:

  1. Select the "Pay Housing Deposit" link on the left side menu.
  2. Select the "Make a Payment" link.
  3. Select the "Housing Deposit" box.
  4. Choose the term and year you will live in the residence halls from the drop-down menu and click "Add to Payment." The housing deposit will appear at the top of the "Make a Payment" screen.
  5. Click the "Continue" button in the lower right corner of the screen.
  6. Select your preferred payment method in the drop-down menu, enter your payment information, and click "Continue."
  7. You will see a final summary page allowing you to review the payment you're about to make. Once you have confirmed your information, click the "Pay" button to complete your transaction.
