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.
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.
