Students required by Board of Regent Policy to reside in University residence halls as a freshman or sophomore will need to select a housing and a dining services plan. Students eligible for the commuter exemption to the residency requirement may choose not to enter a housing or meal plan. All estimated costs of attending UW-Whitewater are based on semester rates for fall or spring. Annual costs are generally twice the semester rates.
Financial Aid Information
Most students, as long as they are enrolled at least half-time (6 credits for undergraduate and 4.5 for graduate) are eligible for financial aid (grants or loans).
To determine what financial aid you are eligible for, you must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at fafsa.gov.
If you have completed the FAFSA and have been awarded financial aid, you can access your financial aid information by logging in to WINS at www.uww.edu/wins and selecting the Financial Aid tile from Student Home. A few notes:
If your financial aid does not cover all of your costs, there are additional options to explore. For a description of some of these options, please visit www.uww.edu/types-of-aid.
Additional Fee Information
Once tuition and fees are calculated for the academic year, they will be listed here.
Some courses (such as online courses) and programs may have additional fees associated with them. In addition, tuition and fees vary among fully online programs; in particular, rates will vary between bachelor's and master's programs. While the majority of fully online programs charge the same tuition for in-state, out-of-state and international students, there are exceptions. Also, the DBA Program does not have a tuition variance based on residency – all DBA students pay the same tuition rate.
