Fall and Spring

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.

2023-24 Undergraduate and Graduate Online Tuition Rates

  • Undergraduate per credit rate – $319
  • Graduate per credit rate – $590
  • Online administrative fee – $60
  • Undergraduate activity fee per credit rate – $24
  • Graduate activity fee per credit rate – $66

Online classes are charged separately from on-campus classes; therefore, they are not included in the 12-18 credit tuition plateau. For example, an undergraduate student with Wisconsin residency enrolled for 12 on-campus credits and three online credits will be charged $4,243.25 for the on-campus credits plus an additional $957 tuition and a $60 technology administration fee for the online credits or a total of $5,260.25.

2023-24 Undergraduate Cost of Attendance

The estimated Annual Cost of Attendance (COA) is an estimated budget for the academic year, which includes budgeted amounts for other non-billed education expenses (personal expenses and transportation) as well as billed expenses (tuition, room, and meals, if applicable). This allows you to utilize financial aid to help cover your expenses beyond your semester bill. The COA is only used when packaging financial aid offers, and does not necessarily reflect actual charges.

The following is an estimate of the cost of attendance for a full-time, undergraduate student living on or off campus, but not with a parent, during the 2023-24 academic year (Fall 2023 – Spring 2024) at UW-Superior:

Proposed Segregated Fees for FY 2024-25

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.

Tuition Refund/Repayment Schedule

Withdrawal from Classes

A withdrawal fee of $50 will be charged to all students who withdraw, or are de-registered, after the semester begins and during the 100% refund period. Official withdrawal forms are available at the Office of the Registrar, Old Main 139. Students are considered enrolled unless an official withdrawal card is on file. Courses less than two weeks will refund 100% on the first day of class only. There will be no refunds after the first day of class.
