The following reflects the fees for the 2019 summer program. This also includes the mandatory student activity fee which provides access to the gyms and city bus system. Textbook costs vary by class and are not included in that amount.

International students will likely have additional SEVIS fees and mandatory health insurance requirements that are set by the University.


Tuition for summer 2019 is $5,000.

After being admitted to APTLI and registering for summer classes at UW-Madison, students receive an electronic tuition bill from the Bursar’s Office. Payments are made directly to the Bursar, via check, electronic bank transfer or credit card. The tuition payment deadline is listed on the email bill – there is a $100 fee for late tuition payments. APTLI is not part of the CIC Traveling Scholars program.

Transcript Fee

Students that have never taken a class at UW-Madison will be charged a one-time new student transcript fee of $65, which allows for unlimited transcript orders.

If you have already taken a course at UW-Madison, you should not have to pay the fee. For more information, click https://registrar.wisc.edu/documentfee/.


Tuition refund policies are set by the University.
