Stop Payment Request


Stop Payment Guidelines:

By completing this form, you are requesting UW-Madison Bursar's Office to place a stop payment on a tuition refund check that was issued to you. Stop payment requests can only be submitted 10 Business days after the original check was issued.

Forms may only be completed by the individual to which the refund check was issued. If the check subject to this stop payment is a PLUS loan being disbursed to the parent, the parent must execute the Stop Payment Request.

It takes approximately 3-5 business days to research and process a stop payment request.

NOTE: If your refund check is from Title IV funds, federal regulations require us to return the funds to the lender in 240 days from the date of the check.

If you have questions about this form please contact our office at 608-262-3611 or email us at tuition@bussvc.wisc.edu.


All fields in this form are required.
