Summer courses and fees

We announced last week that all classes this summer will be offered online or through distance education. This decision was made to ensure that students could continue their education, even if physical distance was still required.

With this adjustment in course delivery, UWM has modified course and segregated fees.

All courses that follow the traditional summer tuition schedule will have a reduced segregated fee and a reduced distance education fee. These fees will pay for the technology to offer classes online and modified student services. We want to ensure that all students have access to campus support services during this challenging time. Most students will pay the same or less under this modified fee schedule than they would have paid in fees last summer.

There will be no changes for students enrolled in courses that are charged fees in lieu of tuition.

Registration for summer classes is now open, and we encourage students to consider enrolling in summer courses. It’s a great way to make progress toward your degree while maintaining a flexible schedule. Additional details on summer tuition and fees are available on the Summer 2020 Tuition and Fee Page. For information on Summer 2020 financial aid, check out the One-Stop Summer 2020 financial aid page.

The university is committed to resuming in-person instruction as soon as possible, and we currently plan to offer in-person classes for Fall 2020. These classes would follow the standard tuition and fee schedule.

2020 census

UWM encourages you to participate in the 2020 census. The census only happens once every 10 years, and this is your chance to be counted! The tally affects representation in government and funding for education.

Watch this video, and then take the 2020 census online today using the address you live at most of the year. If you would normally be living in University Housing, you do not need to complete the census. You will be counted as part of UWM’s group quarters response.
