Tuition & Financial Aid

UW Colleges Graduate

Your education is an investment in your future and we're here to help you make it pay off.

Tuition and Fees

UW Colleges offers the lowest per credit tuition in the UW System. While the exact total will vary from student to student, the cost of completing the Bachelors of Applied Arts & Science (BAAS) degree is approximately $17,500 - $19,000 including tuition and fees. The cost of each course, including segregated fees, is determined by the institution and campus. Courses delivered online will be subject to each institution’s online tuition rate and administrative fees.  See the chart below for tuition and fees for 2016-17.

Financial Aid

If you need assistance paying for your education, financial aid is designed to help meet the difference between the cost of college and your or your family's resources. We encourage you to explore the UW Colleges Financial Aid page to assist you in making college as affordable as possible.

Students may apply to their local UW Colleges campus for financial aid while they are enrolled in the BAAS degree completion program. 

Financial Aid Notes:

  • Students may apply for financial aid even before acceptance. There is no fee for applying for financial aid. Visit the FAFSA website and use the UW Colleges code 003897. Do not use any other campus code.
  • After application, students will receive a letter informing them of awards available to them. Some may be in the form of grants (funds that do not need to be repaid if the student maintains satisfactory academic progress) or loans (funds that need to be repaid with interest). 
  • Students choose which funds they would like to accept.
  • All BAAS students using financial aid must fill out a Consortium Agreement form (from the campus BAAS Advisor) to receive funds to cover any UW partner institution courses they take.
  • Students must maintain an overall 2.0 GPA in at least 6 credits to continue to receive financial aid.
