Fall and Spring Tuition and Fees
UW-Superior operates under a “tuition plateau,” meaning undergraduate students pay the same rate of tuition for 12 credits as they would for 18. Graduate students enrolled between nine and 15 credits will not incur any additional tuition charges
- Classes with additional course fees will be assessed, regardless of the plateau.
- Online tuition is not included in the tuition plateau. Please see online tuition rates below.
- All natural science classes will be assessed a program fee of $12 per credit.
- All rates and fees are subject to change without notice. Actual fees may vary slightly due to rounding.

Auditing Classes – Credit Fee Policy
- Only on-campus courses can be audited. Auditing is not an option for our online classes.
- Wisconsin residents age 60 or older (as of the first day of classes) will not pay tuition. All other senior citizens will pay a percentage of the per-credit tuition based on residency.
- Disabled Wisconsin residents who are receiving disability benefits under either Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program or federal Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) program will not pay tuition.
- Students taking courses for credit who are also auditing a course will pay full fees, just as if all courses were for credit. For example, a student who is taking two three-credit courses for credit and auditing another three-credit course will pay the fees for nine credits, including segregated fees.
- Audit-only students have the option of paying for segregated fees if access to segregated fee-funded services are desired. If segregated fees are not paid, access for audit-only students is limited to the library and non-segregated fee-funded activities of the student center.
- Audit-only students are responsible for any special course fees.
- Audit-only students will pay a percentage of the per-credit fee based on residency:
- Wisconsin residents under age 60 pay 30% of incidental fees (rounded).
- Nonresidents pay 50% of incidental fees and nonresident tuition (rounded).
- Minnesota residents pay 30% of incidental fees and reciprocity fee (rounded). Minnesota residents must apply for and receive reciprocity from the State of Minnesota. If they do not receive reciprocity, they will be considered the same as nonresidents and will pay according to that schedule.
