Financial Considerations



College Value Guide

Finding financial aid can seem overwhelming when you are getting ready for college. Don’t let finances keep you from working toward your goal of a college education. There are multiple ways to pay for your college education, such as scholarships, loans, employment or college savings. Remember, this is an investment in your future.

University of Wyoming students benefit from one of the lowest tuition rates of any four-year institution in the U.S. In fact, UW has been recognized as the best return on investment in the country. Here, you’ll get an incredible education at an even better value.

According to 2017 census data, adults age 25 and older with only a high school education earned an average of $35,615 a year, while those who had college degrees earned an average of $65,482.

It is important to understand scholarships and financial aid, how much debt is too much and what course of study may make the most sense for your student.
