Segregated fees are charges, in addition to tuition, assessed to all students for student services, activities, programs, and facilities that support the mission of University of Wisconsin System institutions, including UW-Madison.
Fall and Spring term rates are set in late July or early August, and we update the tables as soon as possible after that. Rates for Summer term are usually posted in late March.
