Non-Resident Tuition Waiver (NTW) Application

The Non-resident Tuition Waiver (NTW) Program offers financial assistance to non-Wisconsin and non-Minnesota students who enroll at UW-Superior. Non-resident students who are interested in attending UW-Superior and wish to be considered for the NTW Program are encouraged to complete and return this form and apply for admission as early as possible prior to their intended term of enrollment. Note that awards through the NTW Program apply only to the non-resident portion of tuition and do not apply to the resident portion of tuition.


  1. The Program offers funding to a limited number of non-resident students on a first-come, first-served basis, based on their date of admission. Both undergraduate and graduate students are eligible. Early application enhances your chances of being awarded an NTW award.
  2. Awards through the NTW Program waive no part of the resident portion of tuition. Details of award amounts are indicated in award notification letters.
  3. NTW awards are renewable. Freshmen are eligible for awards for up to 10 semesters (five years). Transfer student award limits are based upon the number of credits transferred toward the UW-Superior degree. Graduate students are eligible for awards for up to six semesters (three years).
  4. An applicant must first meet respective undergraduate or graduate admission requirements. Students must maintain full-time student status for each of the two regular (fall and spring) semesters. Undergraduate students must be enrolled in a minimum of 12 credits total each semester, of which at least 9 must be on-campus credits. Graduate students must be enrolled in a minimum of 9 credits total each semester, of which at least 6 must be on-campus credits. The full-time status requirement will be waived for the last term of attendance.
  5. Non-resident degree seeking students pursuing their first baccalaureate or graduate degree will be given priority in the NTW award considerations.
  6. NTW awards may be granted for continuing students who wish to enroll in summer and J-term sessions. Full-time status is not required for summer and J-term sessions.
  7. Students must be in academic good standing as defined by university policy; students placed on academic probation may forfeit their NTW awards.
  8. Non-resident students who wish to transfer to UW-Superior from a UW two-year college campus may apply for an NTW award. Transfer non-resident students from other UW System four-year institutions may be eligible for an NTW award, depending based on individual circumstances.
  9. Students enrolled at UW-Superior through the NTW Program and who wish to transfer and obtain a degree from another UW institution will be required to reimburse the UW System for fees previously remitted through the NTW Program.
  10. The NTW Program is subject to legislative changes, interpretations and mandates.
