At any time your bill can be viewed by at MySWTC. Non-attendance or non-payment does not constitute a cancellation of registration, and students will be responsible for tuition and fees not paid. Tuition and fees are due the first day of the term for students without financial aid.
Tuition and fees for Summer/Fall of 2017 are subject to change pending actions by the Wisconsin Technical College System State Board and/or State Legislature. Following those actions, new tuition and fees rates may be applied to your 2017 Summer/Fall bill.
