Non-resident Tuition Waiver - NTW
There have been some recent changes in theTuition Award Program (TAP) Grant, which waives part of the non-resident portion of your tuition. Starting in the 2011-12 academic year, the TAP program will be referred to as the Non-resident Tuition Award (NTW) program. The changes to the policy will not negatively affect the conditions of your original award, but your grant will now be referred to as an NTW Award.
The new policy clarifies that you must be a full-time student (12 credits for undergraduate and 9 credits for graduate). Please note that the NTW awards may be available, but are not guaranteed, for summer sessions. In order to be considered, you must submit a UW-Superior summer college financial aid application, which is available on the Financial Aid Office website.
Another change is that you will no longer have to complete the TAP/NTW Renewal form for financial aid each year. As long as you continue to make satisfactory academic progress and meet the conditions of the original TAP application you submitted, you will continue to receive your award.NTW Scholar Award
Current students receiving an NTW Award (formerly known as a TAP Grant) are eligible to apply for a limited number of NTW Scholar Awards for the 2011-12 academic year. In order to be considered, you will have to submit a Continuing Student NTW Scholar Award application. The following criteria will be considered:
· Two consecutive semesters of attendance (can be currently completing second semester)
· Academic achievement as evidenced by GPA
· Volunteer service/Involvement in campus and community events/activities
· Application essay
· Priority will be given to students who demonstrate financial need as evidenced by change in financial circumstance since original application and meet the above four criteria
Please contact the Financial Aid Office with questions you may have about the Non-resident Tuition Waiver.
