UW tuition and fees are competitive, or lower than most private and for-profit educational institutions. The cost to complete your BSN will vary, depending on your home campus and the number of credits you need to graduate. Refer to Choose a Campus on this website and your home campus for tuition costs for non-nursing (e.g., general education courses) and BSN@Home nursing courses. The BSN@Home tuition rate is different than your home campus tuition, so you will need to keep this in mind when estimating your tuition.
Other costs to get started with BSN completion include a UW System application fee ($50.00) when you apply, and textbook costs. Textbook costs vary by semester but average about $125.00 per course.
Financial aid originates from your home campus. You must complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) application to determine if you are eligible for financial aid. This application can be found at www.fafsa.org. Generally you must take six (6) credits to be considered part-time and eligible; 12 credits is considered full-time status. Contact your home campus if you need assistance or have questions regarding financial aid. Also, refer to Choose a Campus on this website for information on financial aid.
There are opportunities for you to apply for scholarships. Refer to your home campus for scholarship information that is associated with that campus. There are other scholarship opportunities available, but you must search for them. Use your home campus’s Financial Aid Office as a starting place, but also look for scholarship opportunities from professional organizations and other establishments as well. Also, many healthcare employers offer tuition reimbursement programs.
