Paying by Check

Send a check and the “Remittance” copy of the invoice to:

University of Wisconsin–Madison Bursar’s Office
Attn: Third Party Billing
333 East Campus Mall #10501
Madison, WI 53715-1383

Paying by EFT/ACH

Please use wire transfer information provided with the invoice. Include the following reference information when submitting wire transfer:  Invoice number, Student’s Campus ID number, Student’s full name, and the term being paid.

If you are unable to provide the requested reference information with the wire transfer, notify our office at thirdparty@bussvc.wisc.edu with the wire confirmation containing the following information:

  • Date of wire transfer
  • Total amount of wire transfer
  • Account number
  • Invoice Number
  • Student’s Full Name and Campus ID Number
  • Semester being paid

Late Payments

Third Party invoices are due within 30 days of issuance. If timely payment is not received, a second invoice is generated. If the invoice remains unpaid, the charges that are not paid by the sponsor will be placed on the student account and the student(s) will be billed electronically in the next student billing cycle. Students are ultimately responsible for the full cost of their educational expenses if their sponsor does not pay.

Non-Payment

Third Party invoice terms are Net 30. In most cases, a second invoice will be generated if payment has not been received. At that time communication is made to the Third Party Sponsor to actively pursue collecting payments for outstanding invoices.

Also during that time, Third Party Sponsors may send proof of payment for further research. Communication will continue until a resolution date has been exhausted.

  • The Third Party Deferral credit is reversed once the collection efforts have been made. The student is notified of this reversal via email, with payment instructions.
  • If the invoice remains unpaid, the charges that are not paid by the sponsor will be placed on the student account and the student(s) will be billed electronically in the next student billing cycle. Students are ultimately responsible for the full cost of their educational expenses if their sponsor does not pay.
