Fee-Based Programs

Fee-Based Programs Overview

The University offers both state-supported and fee-based degree programs. Students who are enrolled in most fee-based programs will use a different process to register for classes and pay for their courses than students in state-supported programs. Most fee-based programs are offered through the UW’s Continuum College.

Information regarding fee-based programs, including available financial aid, can be found on the Office of Student Financial Aid website.

The Office of the University Registrar maintains a Fee-based programs FAQ.

Fee-based Program Rate Setting

Fee-based program rates are established and changed through an annual process. In accordance with E.O. 44, the Provost approves fee-based program rates.

For the 2018-19 academic year, the process for units to request changes to fee-based program rates was outlined in a letter from the Provost to the Board of Deans and Chancellors (BODC). A similar process will be used until further notice.
