The University of Wisconsin Oshkosh may bill requesters $.25 for each copy made, but will not charge reproduction costs for electronic copies of records that exist in electronic format. A location fee may be charged if the cost to locate the record(s) in question is $50 or more.

All requests will be processed as soon as practicable and without delay.
