NTW Award Estimated Costs

 Estimated Costs for Undergraduate Students Receiving an NTW Award

For non-resident students who have been granted a Non-Resident Tuition Waiver (NTW) Award, the university will waive 75% of the non-resident portion of tuition, rounded down to the nearest $100 each semester. Awards through the NTW Program do not waive any of the resident portion of tuition.

Since the 2006, the non-resident portion of tuition for undergraduate students has been approximately $7,575 each year. As a result, the NTW Award has been worth $5,600 per year. This is subject to change for future academic years.

The figures above do not include medical insurance, which is required and costs $1,430 for 12 months of coverage, or books and supplies, for which students should budget approximately $800 per year. Also not included above are personal & travel expenses, which each individual student ultimately determines. We estimate that students should budget at least $2,150 per year for personal expenses. Summer-related expenses are not included in the figures above.

Students who are offered an NTW Award and who seek F-1 student status must submit bank documents showing a balance of at least US$21,150 in order to be eligible for a Form I-20. Per U.S. regulations, this amount includes estimates for personal expenses and books & supplies, which will not be owed to the University. 

The average increase for university-related expenses in the U.S. is approximately 6% per year. In recent years, cost increases for UW-Superior international students have been 2-4% per year.

To apply for an award through the NTW Program, submit an NTW application.
