The Net Price Calculator (NPC) is designed to help estimate your eligibility for various forms of financial aid which will help offset the cost of attending UWEC. It is only an estimate and not an actual financial aid award. To receive a financial aid award, a student must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and include our Federal School Code on the application: 003917.
NOTE: Estimates on the NPC are based on 2024-2025 costs and will use the federal calculation of your Student Aid Index (SAI).
To estimate your financial aid award you will need an SAI. If you have already completed the FAFSA and know your SAI, you may use this index number when completing the NPC. If not, the Federal Student Aid Estimator will help you calculate an estimated SAI.
Pell Grant: On 01/31/2024, the Department of Education released tentative 2024-25 Pell Grant figures which are similar to the 2023-24 academic year awards. If the Dept. issues new Pell figures, we will update the NPC.
Out-of-State Scholarships and Nonresident Remission:
The NPC will calculate a student's eligibility for either a Out-of-State Scholarship or Nonresident Remission, but not both. Per WI State statues, a student may not be remitted more in a non-resident tuition remission than what they are being charged in nonresident tuition and fees. On the NPC, if a student is eligible for either of these award, it will be listed as Non-Resident Tuition Remission.
Wisconsin Tuition Promise:
It has not been confirmed by the Universities of Wisconsin if the Wisconsin Tuition Promise will be available for the incoming class starting Fall 2024. If the program continues, we will make efforts to update the NPC with this information. Per the Wisconsin Tuition Promise information page: the WI Tuition Promise covers any tuition, differentials, and segregated fees not covered by the Federal Pell Grant, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG), and the Wisconsin Grant.
Additionally, the program will consider any other awards for which specific funds must be used to cover tuition and segregated fees. This could include athletic, veterans benefits including the Wisconsin GI Bill, and any other sources (i.e., state, institutional, foundation, and outside) of scholarships, grants, or waivers. Also, the Academic Excellence Scholarship administered by the Wisconsin Higher Educational Aids Board specifies the state and institutional matching funds must be applied toward tuition.
