Viewing Your Student Bill
To view your bill, login to your Cardinal Apps portal and go to the UIW ePayment Center. Visit the "Your e-Bills" section to view your published invoice, or click on the "Current Tuition Bill/Class Schedule" link to view a dynamic itemized bill.
Tuition is due in full on or by the first day of class each semester, or the student must be enrolled in a payment plan. Late fees in the amount of $250 will be assessed to all past due balances on November 5th (fall semester) and April 5th (spring semester).
Banded tuition is a set price for all undergraduate students taking 12-18 hours of coursework.
This is a mandatory fee assessed to all students to provide support and programming to students in areas such as Title IX, Disability Student Services, Career Services, Counseling and Behavioral Services, online library support, technical support, tutoring, wellness facilities and much more.
All students are charged a one-time, mandatory fee to cover the cost of institutional records (transcripts, enrollment verification, etc.)
Per university policy, all full-time domestic students and all international students must carry medical insurance, and are automatically charged for the school-sponsored plan. If a domestic student carries his/her own insurance, then the student can complete an insurance waiver online prior to the posted deadline. International students are not allowed to waive insurance coverage per UIW policy.
Graduation fees are assessed by the Registrar's Office to process students' graduation applications and to review your academic file. For those who submit their application after the posted deadline, a late application fee will be assessed in addition to the graduation fee.
