Special note to UW and State of WA employees pursuing graduate coursework:

For several years, the UW has had a Tuition Exemption Program, which enables UW and State of WA employees to have tuition waived for up to six credit hours when enrollment is on a space-available basis.

Effective winter quarter 2013, the Tuition Exemption Program is available only to non-matriculated (NM) and graduate non-matriculated (GNM) students in the College of Education. Matriculated students — including matriculated students enrolled in other schools/colleges — will not be permitted to use the tuition exemption.

Other Expenses

The Office of Student Financial Aid has prepared estimates of living expenses (e.g. room, board, transportation, etc.) for U.S. students; International Student Services has prepared similar estimates for international students. We encourage you to review these estimates as you plan for your education.

Office of Student Financial Aid

The UW Office of Student Financial Aid is the primary source of financial assistance for most students. The UW requires students to file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) in order to be qualified for federal financial aid programs.

Additional Funding Resources

The Graduate Opportunity and Minority Achievement Program (GO-MAP) administers funding programs for diverse students.

The Graduate Funding Information Service (GFIS) offers workshops, blog posts, and individual consultations to help guide admitted graduate students, explaining the available print and online resources.

The Office of Merit Scholarships, Fellowships, and Awards provides information and resources to help students learn about scholarship and fellowship searches and application processes.
