Students with a Fall and Spring semester housing contract may continue living in the residence halls during J-Term.

Library Access

Please see the Jim Dan Hill Library website for 24/7 access to electronic resources, or to obtain research help and other library services.


Students only enrolled in J-Term (i.e. guest students to UW-Superior) taking an on-campus course are required to obtain a parking permit.

Students who have a full-year parking permit can use that permit for on-campus J-Term courses.

Students who only purchased a fall semester only parking permit have parking privileges through the end of J-Term.


Students can order textbooks through the UW-Superior 'Jacket Book and Supply.

Tuition and Fees

J-Term tuition is not part of the plateau and is billed separately from Fall or Spring semesters.

Please see the Bursar/Cashier's Office for J-Term Tuition and Fees Due Date. Students receiving additional financial aid for J-Term which does not cover the full cost of tuition and fees must make payment in full. Failure to make payment by January 5, 2021 will result in a late payment fee of $6.25 per credit, a registration hold placed on the account, and may result in deregistration from classes.
