Cost of Attendance

Funding your education is an important investment with lifelong dividends. UW consistently ranks among the best values in the country based on the quality and breadth of education opportunities available, our low tuition rates for both Wyoming resident and non-resident students, and our amazing undergraduate scholarship programs. We know that when you compare costs at competitor public research universities, you'll find that UW is an amazing value!

Most colleges and universities calculate "cost of attendance" based on tuition, fees, room, board and anticipated book and personal expenses for the current school year.

+ All non-resident students who are children of UW graduates are eligible to receive a discounted tuition rate at 150% of resident tuition. This discounted tuition rate is equal to $6,676 of tuition and fees in addition to the other costs listed above.


New undergraduates applying to the University of Wyoming will automatically be considered for one of UW's general scholarships based on their previous academic work. Check out for details on these general scholarships, and links to UW competitive scholarships available through various departments. Scholarship awards are subject to available funding.

Graduate students should connect directly with their academic program regarding funding options.

Financial Aid

UW awards federal financial aid based on a student's Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) results. All students wishing to be considered for financial aid must complete the FAFSA and have the results sent to UW. Once received, the Student Financial Aid Office will post an award offer to the student's WyoWeb account.

Residents who qualify for Hathaway Scholarships are asked to also complete the FAFSA, regardless of desire to accept grants or loans.
