Financial information

We believe students from all economic backgrounds should have the opportunity to attend the University of Washington and that finances should never be a barrier to a world-class education.

Each year about 60% of University of Washington undergraduates receive almost $400 million in financial aid- with $250 million in scholarship and grant funds.

Financial Aid

A wide array of federal, state and institutional financial aid programs are available to help students at all economic levels pay for their education. Student Fiscal Services offers a tuition overview and information on tuition payment for students and parents. Learn more about tuition and fee distribution.


The Office of Merit Scholarships, Fellowships and Awards (OMSFA) helps UW students develop the tools and personal insights necessary to match their goals with local and national merit-based scholarship opportunities. They can also talk with your family about other scholarship resources outside of the UW that may be available to support your student.
