For several years, the UW has had a Tuition Exemption Program, which enables UW and State of WA employees to have tuition waived for up to six credit hours when enrollment is on a space-available basis.
Effective winter quarter 2013, the Tuition Exemption Program is available only to non-matriculated (NM) and graduate non-matriculated (GNM) students in the College of Education. Matriculated students — including matriculated students enrolled in other schools/colleges — will not be permitted to use the tuition exemption.
For complete information, please review this policy statement.
The Office of Student Financial Aid has prepared estimates of living expenses (e.g. room, board, transportation, etc.) for U.S. students; International Student Services has prepared similar estimates for international students. We encourage you to review these estimates as you plan for your education.
