Tuition and Scholarships

UW tuition rates for undergraduates

For tuition rates, visit the tuition dashboard. From the top menu, select either "Annual Tuition" or "Quarterly Tuition," then select campus, residency status, and student level.

Scholarships for engineering undergraduates

Scholarships are available through the College of Engineering (CoE) and the MSE department through a single, annual application process from April 1 to May 1. Check CoE Undergraduate Scholarships for details on when scholarship applications are being accepted and to find the status of your application.

We highly recommended that you have a completed FAFSA on file with the UW. Not all scholarships use the FAFSA need-based score, but many do.

The Washington State Opportunity Scholarship (WSOS) helps low- and middle-income Washington state residents earn their bachelor’s degrees in the high-demand fields of science, technology, engineering, math and health care. See the WSOS website for more information

Financial aid

The UW Office of Student Financial Aid provides resources to students for various types of aid such as scholarships, grants, loans and veteran benefits. To be eligible for federal financial aid, students must complete the federal student aid FAFSA application.

The FAFSA should be received at the federal processor by January 15 for priority consideration for our aid programs for the upcoming school year. Late applications for aid are accepted, but the options for available aid are fewer.

Federal financial aid is open to U.S. students only.

More resources

Financial aid and scholarship clearing houses like Fastweb are also good sources.

International student tuition and fees

Tuition for international students is the same as the non-resident rate.

International students who wish to study in the U.S. on an F-1 or J-1 student visa need to provide proof of adequate financial support for one year. If you are offered admission and you decide to enroll, you will be required to submit a bank statement or letter showing proof of finances to cover the first year of tuition, living expenses, and other campus fees. Detailed instructions will be sent with the offer of admission. If the offer of admission includes funding support from the MSE department, the requirement for proof of financial support can be waived.

See the UW Office of Admissions' Money Matters and Annual Student Budget for International Students for more information on international student fees.
