How to Pay for College at UW-Superior

Paying for college can be a challenge, but UW-Superior is a super affordable four-year program with nearly 82% of all UW-Superior students receiving some type of financial aid.

Did you know UW-Superior awarded more than $175,000 in new student scholarships for the 2014-2015 academic year? Also did you know Minnesota residents pay close to in-state tuition rates, and non-Minnesota and Wisconsin students may be eligible for our Non-Resident Tuition Waiver?

Tuition Reciprocity

Tuition reciprocity allows Minnesota residents to attend UW-Superior and pay the same tuition rate they would pay as a Minnesota resident attending the Minnesota State University System.

To qualify, students must file a reciprocity form before the end of their first semester of enrollment through the Minnesota Office of Higher Education.
