NTW Scholar Award Estimated Costs

Estimated Costs for Students Receiving an NTW Scholar Award

For non-resident students (including non-U.S. citizens) who have been granted an NTW Scholar Award, the university will waive 100% of the non-resident portion of tuition, rounded down to the nearest $100 each semester. Awards through the NTW Program do not waive any part of the resident portion of tuition.

Since 2006, the non-resident portion of tuition for undergraduate students has been approximately $7,575 each year.  As a result, the NTW Scholar Award has been worth $7,500 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 recommend that students 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 Scholar Award and who seek F-1 student status must submit bank documents showing a balance of at least US$19,250 in order to be eligible for a Form I-20. As required by 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.
