Terms & Conditions of Fee Payment Form

Use of Social Security Number

To identify your account we must use your social security number. The Privacy Act of 1974 (5 U.S.C. 532.a) requires that an agency provide the following notice to each individual whom it asks to supply a social security number:

1. The authority for requesting and using your social security number is found in 20 U.S.C. section 123g.

2. Disclosure of the social security number is voluntary; however, failure to provide the number may result in denial of the application or service sought.

3. The social security number will not be used for identification purposes but may be used for any and all necessary and usual billing and collection efforts up to and including disclosures to federal, state, or local agencies, to private parties such as relatives, present and former employers, business and personal associates, to guarantee agencies, to educational and financial institutions, to credit bureaus and collection agencies, and to agency contractors, in order to verify your identity, to determine program eligibility and benefits, to permit servicing or collection of debt, to counsel you in repayment efforts, to investigate possible fraud and to verify compliance with any relevant program regulations, and/or locate you in the event you become delinquent in the repayment of the debt.

Partial Payment Option

The charges that may be included in the partial payment option are academic, segregated, lab fees, placement test fees, orientation fees, insurance, and room & board. If the student's account becomes delinquent, the University of Wisconsin-Superior reserves the right to commence collection, including the assessment of additional finance charges, the assessment of collection costs, placing a hold on future registrations, and denial of future credit. By choosing the partial payment option, the student further grants the Cashiers Office the right to obtain information found in the student's file(s) in other University offices and the right to disclose account information for collection purposes.

Note on Withdrawal From the University

Use of the partial payment option does not imply a student can withdraw form school and thereby be excused from the remaining payments for the semester. This option defers portions of the fees to be paid later in the term. If a student withdraws after the refund period ends, fees must be paid in full. Failure to make installment payments as agreed will result in denial of credit for future semesters, and the entire balance will become immediately due and payable.

Wisconsin Marital Property Agreement

No provision of a marital property agreement, a unilateral statement under s.766.59 Wisconsin Statutes, or a court degree under s.766.70, Wisconsin Statutes, adversely affects the interest of the Lender unless the Lender, prior to the time credit is granted, is furnished a copy of the agreement, statement or decree or has actual knowledge of the adverse provision when the obligations to the Lender is incurred. If you wish to have a marital property agreement, unilateral statement or court decree considered in connection with your partial payment option, you may provide the Cashiers Office with a copy. Otherwise, students choosing the partial payment option who are married residents of the State of Wisconsin will be certifying that the debt they will be incurring is in the interest of the marriage or family when they sign and return the terms and conditions form and such credit notice will be available to your spouse.

Acceptance of the Partial Payment Option

Students will be assumed to be on the partial payment option when they sign and return the terms and conditions form and until all fees are paid in full. All financial aid must be applied to the student's bill. There will be no monies returned from financial aid that is direct credited for books unless the student's account is paid in full.
