Select an installment payment plan

Access the Student Account eBilling/ePayment site from your MyUW Student Center or Authorized Payer site.

  1. From the MyUW Student Center, select Financial Account.  Navigate to the Manage My Payment section, then select “Manage My Payment” to open the Student Account eBill/ePayment site
  2. On the Student Account eBill/ePayment Overview page, navigate to the Payment Plans section and select “View payment plan options”

Review the plan and accept

On the plan information page, you will be able to review your total payment plan amount, your payment schedule listing amounts and due dates, and your plan details.

  1. Select ‘Enroll in plan’ to continue your BadgerPay enrollment
  2. Accept the eSignature disclosure
  3. Review all the information in the terms and conditions, select ‘I Agree’, then select ‘Continue’
  4. You will then be prompted to select a payment option to make the first installment.  Use the drop-down menu to select a saved account or enter new payment information

NOTE: The initial BadgerPay installment must be paid online during enrollment.  

Set up Automatic Payments

You may choose to set up Automatic Payments for the BadgerPay installment plan.

  1. On the Student Account eBill/ePayment site, under Payment Plans, select ‘Set up auto pay’
  2. Choose an existing saved account or enter new payment information to use for your automatic payments
  3. The remaining BadgerPay payments for the current term will be automatically posted according to the payment method you select

Setting up Automatic Payments is optional  – if you do not enroll for Automatic Payments, you will need to make manual payments for the remaining installments.

BadgerPay and Financial Aid

Anticipated aid will appear on your eBill; however, this financial aid will not be reflected in your BadgerPay budget amount until it has been disbursed to your account.

We recommend that you sign up for BadgerPay after your financial aid has disbursed (for Fall 2022: between August 29th and your due date and for Spring 2023: between January 16th and your due date) so the payment plan more accurately reflects your student account balance.
