UW-Madison extends tuition refund deadline for students impacted by coronavirus

MADISON, Wis. (CBS 58) -- UW-Madison has adjusted some academic and financial deadlines for students and families impacted by COVID-19 challenges. 

For students negatively impacted by COVID-19 and choose to completely withdraw from the semester, a full tuition refund will be possible for one additional week to Friday, Sept. 18, according to officials. 

Students are encouraged to contact their academic dean's office to discuss their situation if they are considering withdrawing or withdrew since Sept.11, according to a news release.

"We understand these are difficult times for students and families as they evaluate rapidly changing circumstances during the pandemic," said university registrar Scott Owczarek. "To help reduce some pressure they're feeling, we've provided some flexibility in the timeline for making important decisions about this semester."

The deadline for students to drop a fall term course and receive a 50% tuition refund on adjusted tuition remains Friday, Sept. 25.
