Pay the same tuition, in or out of state
Tuition for the online UW Sustainable Management program is the same whether you live in Wisconsin or out of state, and financial aid is available for students who qualify.
There are no additional course or program fees, however, textbooks are purchased separately and are not included in tuition. As this is an online program, you will not pay segregated fees (fees in addition to tuition that cover the cost of student-organized activities, facility maintenance, and operations) and you will not be charged a technology fee. If software or special technology is required in one of your courses, it will be provided to you and is included in your tuition.
- Certificates: $440 per credit (12 credits)
- Bachelor of Science: $440 per credit (63 credits)
- Master of Science: $740 per credit (34 credits)
Federal and State Financial Aid
Financial aid may be available to you as a bachelor’s or master’s degree-seeking student and is awarded by your “home” campus (see below for an explanation of “home” campus). Students enrolling in certificate programs are not eligible for financial aid.
Contact your home campus financial aid office for details:
- UW-Green Bay Financial Aid
- UW-Oshkosh Financial Aid
- UW-Parkside Financial Aid
- UW-River Falls Financial Aid
- UW-Stout Financial Aid
- UW-Superior Financial Aid
Please check with your home campus regarding minimum credits required to qualify for financial aid as a full- or part-time student.
To apply for federal and state financial aid, fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Completing this form is the first step when applying for federal or state financial aid. Even if you haven’t made a final decision about whether or not you will apply to this program, you may want to consider completing the FAFSA.
Sources of Financial Aid
As a returning adult student, you may consider the following sources of financial aid to help with the cost of your online degree:
- Federal grants—awarded based on financial need. Grants do not need to be repaid.
- Federal student loans—typically offered at low interest rates, however, loans must be repaid.
- Private education loans—available in addition to federal grants and loans. Private loans must be repaid.
- Tuition reimbursement—a benefit offered by companies to their employees. Check with your human resources department to find out if your company offers this benefit.
- Scholarships—awarded based on academic achievement or other criteria; financial need is sometimes taken into account. Scholarships do not need to be repaid.
- Military benefits—available to eligible veterans, their spouses, their children, and current members of the military.
- Education tax benefits—talk with your financial advisor about possible tax benefits.
The UW Sustainable Management program offers scholarship opportunities to new and continuing bachelor’s and master’s students to help pay for their education. These scholarships are available each fall and spring semester; the deadline for submissions is the first day of the semester. For details, visit the UW Sustainable Management Scholarships page.
What is a “Home” Campus?
The UW Sustainable Management program is a partnership of UW Extended Campus and six University of Wisconsin campuses: UW-Green Bay, UW-Oshkosh, UW-Parkside, UW-River Falls, UW-Stout, and UW-Superior. Although you will take courses taught by faculty from partner campuses, you will apply to a “home” campus. Your home campus is the institution from which you will receive financial aid (if you qualify), advising, career services, and your diploma. This is an online program, but your degree and transcripts will be identical to those earned by on-campus students.
