Wisconsin Tuition Promise 

​​​​This program is for Fall 2023 students. 

The Wisconsin Tuition Promise is a new initiative to ensure underserved Wisconsin students can attend any UW System university, including UW-Stevens Point, without paying tuition, including most fees. The program aims to increase the number of state residents who graduate with a bachelor's degree – especially first-generation students and those from low-to-moderate-income households. This will improve lives and help meet the state's workforce needs.

Students will automatically be considered for the WI Tuition Promise when they are admitted to the university, have a completed FAFSA on file, and meet all other eligibility requirements.

Eligibility Requirements:

  • Applicant is a Wisconsin resident.
  • Applicant is a first-time bachelor or associate-degree student (includes first-time transfer students).
  • Applicant must file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) each year, and in the first year, have $62,000 or lower adjusted gross income (AGI).
  • Applicant meets all Title IV eligibility requirements and any additional state requirements.
  • Applicant must attend full-time (12+ credit hours) each semester.
  • Applicant must have been employed at some point during the preceding 12 months.

Eligibility Requirements for Continued Eligibility:
  • Applicant must maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) and continue to meet all Title IV eligibility requirements and any additional state requirements.
  • Eligibility is limited to eight semesters for first-time bachelor-degree-seeking students and four semesters for associate-degree-seeking and first-time transfer students. The semester count will start with the fall 2023 term or beginning enrollment term thereafter.
  • Applicant must be continuously enrolled (winter and summer terms excluded) in the same academic career (i.e., associate or bachelor’s degree).
