A UW Education for Less Money

The University of Washington now offers two different programs that reduce or eliminate tuition for some students. Starting in 2007-2008, low-income or lower-middle income students will qualify for a new program called "Husky Promise," which guarantees that eligible students will receive a combination of grants and/or scholarships to cover their full tuition and standard fees. In addition, already in place is a 50% tuition waiver for veterans pursuing their first bachelor's degree who served in active duty in a war or conflict on foreign soil or in support of those who did.
