BadgerPay Payment Plan

BadgerPay payment plan provides a convenient means for paying tuition and fees through regularly scheduled payments. UW Madison expects students to enroll in the BadgerPay payment plan or make payment in full for all charges by the payment due date for each term.


  • Easy online enrollment
  • Payments can be processed automatically
  • Available for Fall and Spring semesters

Cost to Participate

  • A nonrefundable $50 plan enrollment fee will be due at the time of enrollment into BadgerPay. This $50 fee is charged each semester you choose to enroll in the BadgerPay payment plan.

Students with Financial Aid, who wish to sign up for BadgerPay:

  • Anticipated Aid will appear on your eBill; however, this aid will not be reflected in your BadgerPay budget amount until August 28th. We would suggest that you sign up for BadgerPay between August 28th and your tuition due date, so it more accurately reflects your tuition balance.
