Do I have to pay an enrollment deposit?
Once I’m admitted to the program how long do I have to finish my degree?
All credits used in meeting the requirements of a graduate degree or certification in professional education must be earned within a period of not more than 10 consecutive years, commencing with the enrollment date in courses applicable to the degree (or certification program) rather than the completion date of applicable courses. This limit applies to resident credit courses, Extension courses, and courses taken at other universities.
How do I get my bill?
UW-Superior does not mail tuition bills to students. Electronic billing is the official means of generating tuition bills to all UW-Superior students. It is the responsibility of the student to check their EHive account to view their bill. Instructions on how to view bill.
I wish to change programs. Do I have to pay the application fee and order official transcripts again?
No. The application fee is a one-time charge. The official transcripts are kept on file until a degree is completed. A program change does require a Program Change Request Form to be filled out and turned in to Graduate Studies.

How do I apply for graduation?
I have graduated, when can I expect my diploma?
Diplomas are ordered after the degrees have been posted, and it takes 6-8 weeks for the diplomas to get to campus before being mailed to the students. All indebtedness to the university must be cleared before a diploma and official transcripts will be released. The transcript, not the diploma, is proof of an earned degree.
