Registration: Other Considerations

Payments

During registration and after selecting your courses in the UWPCE online registration portal you will be brought to the “Payment” screen, with instructions to choose: “Pay Invoice Later” or “Credit or Debit Card Payments”.

  • “Pay Invoice Later” = Choose this option if you utilize any type of aid, such as financial aid, GI benefits, scholarships, GA/TA/RA funding, etc. If you don’t utilize aid and prefer to pay later, you can also choose this option.  An invoice for any tuition owed will be sent after the quarter begins.  Pay your invoice balance after the start of the quarter on the UW due date (typically the 3rd Friday after the beginning of the quarter); late payments will be assessed a fee. Payment options include credit or debit card, wire transfer, or a check in US funds drawn on a US bank.  All tuition payments must be made to UW Professional and Continuing Education.  Send tuition payment only to UWPCE, and not via MyUW or to another UW department.
  • “Credit or Debit Card Payments” = If you prefer to pay at the time of registration, choose this option. You may choose to pay all or partial tuition owed at this time.

IMPORTANT: Tuition payments should only be sent to UWPCE directly. The only payments allowed via MyUW are for your UPASS and international student fees.  If you have any questions on the tuition payment process contact UWPCE Registration Services at 206-543-2310 or 800-543-2320, or send e-mail to c2reg@pce.uw.edu.
