The University is not a financial institution. Payments directed to UW-Madison should be rendered for the amount due on your UW-Madison eBill. Payments for off-campus housing or other personal living expenses must be directed to your personal bank account, not the University.  Please note: payments received in excess of the amount billed will be returned to the originating account.

Schedule changes that result in a tuition reduction and credit balance will also be refunded to the originating account.
