Tuition and Fees:
The University of Washington Evening Degree Program is a fee-based program. This means we do not receive state funding. Our program is competitively priced with other public colleges and universities. Instructional fees are assessed on a per-credit basis, regardless of the number of credits taken. The same fee rate applies to both resident and nonresident students.
See Course Registration: Tuition and Fees for more information.
Federal financial aid is available!
Many UW Evening Degree Program students use federal financial aid to assist in paying for their education. Financial aid is available for both full- and part-time students.
We understand that funding a college education takes careful planning and often requires tapping a variety of financial resources. The Office of Student Financial Aid is here to help you determine whether you qualify for aid, and to assist you with the whole application procedure.
For most types of financial aid, the Office of Student Financial Aid determines your financial need for the aid. There is no "income cutoff" or other simple method of determining whether you will qualify for need-based financial aid. If you think you need help paying for college, we strongly encourage you to apply. Even if you think you may not qualify, you might. We encourage all students to apply for financial aid.
We encourage all students seeking financial assistance to also investigate the Undergraduate Scholarship Office.
What types of financial aid are available?
The University of Washington helps make your university education affordable by providing financial assistance in a number of areas—from grants and loans to scholarships and work study opportunities. For a full listing of the grants, scholarship, work study and loan programs available, please visit the UW financial aid Web site.
How do I apply for financial aid?
University of Washington students use the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to apply for financial aid.
If you don't already have one, you must apply for a Personal Identification Number (PIN) from the U.S. Department of Education. If your parents have to provide their information, they can apply for a PIN, too. After you receive your PIN, go to the FAFSA Web site and follow directions to file the FAFSA (and signature page if directed to do so).
Full application information is available at the UW financial aid Web site. Be sure to note the priority application date for the upcoming year.
