Discounts and Grants

DISCOUNTS

Some students quality for special tuition discounts. Discount awards are prorated for students taking less than a full-time credit load. Online learning course credits do not apply.

GRANTS

Like discounts and scholarships, grants are a form of gift aid that does not need to be repaid. All Grants are awarded on the basis of financial need as determined by the FAFSA. Federal and UNW Grant awards are prorated for students taking a part-time credit load, with the exception of the Minnesota State Grant, which requires a minimum of 15+ credits to receive the full Minnesota State Grant.

Federal and State Grants are available for Traditional Undergraduate, Adult Undergraduate and Online students. UNW Grants are only available to Traditional Undergraduate students. Graduate students are not eligible for any Federal, State or UNW grants. Click on a degree format to learn more:
