“We’re excited that this program will make a great UW-Superior education even more accessible.” said Jeremy Nere, UW-Superior senior enrollment officer. “We are urging all first-time bachelor or associate-degree applicants for fall 2023 who are Wisconsin residents to complete their FAFSA as soon as possible to determine if they are eligible. One of the great things about this program is that our online students are eligible as well as our students studying on-campus.”
The Wisconsin Tuition Promise provides up to four years of tuition for students from families earning less than $62,000 annually. Also students enrolling at UW-Superior or any of the other 12 public universities within the UW System. The program provides “last dollar” financial support after federal and state grant aid.

Students will need sufficient academic progress each year and have employment at some point during the previous year. University of Wisconsin System President Jay Rothman said a UW System education is the most affordable in the Midwest.
“Education unlocks success in Wisconsin,” Rothman said. “By ensuring that every Wisconsin student is given the full opportunity to get a higher education, we will improve those lives directly while building the economic engine and community prosperity that benefit all Wisconsinites.” Students are automatically eligible for the Wisconsin Tuition Promise when applying for FASFA financial aid.
