Non-Residents+ Children of Alumni
Fall 2016 - Spring 2017
All non-resident students who are children of UW graduates receive a reduced tuition rate equal to 150 percent of that paid by residents. This benefit is awarded for as long as the student is enrolled at UW, and applies to undergraduate, graduate, doctoral and professional work. Qualified students also receive this benefit for enrollment during summer sessions. There are no restrictions on the number of enrolled credit hours.

Eligible students are encouraged to also pursue merit, talent, and UW Alumni Association scholarships. To be considered, students should indicate on their admission application they are the child of a UW graduate.
To apply for the Child of Alumni discount, students must:
- Apply for admission and submit the non-refundable $40 admission application fee
- Be sure to provide alumni parent information requested on the admission application
- Submit official high school and/or college transcripts
- Submit official ACT/SAT test scores
- Be admitted to UW
+ Residents of Wyoming who are children of UW graduates receive the best rate possible in the way of resident tuition. These students will be considered for the Wyoming Scholars and Trustees' Scholars Awards as incoming freshmen, or the John W. Hoyt Scholarship if they are transferring to UW.
