You can Afford the Best

For the last decade, the average out-of-pocket tuition (tuition minus financial aid) at Wisconsin’s private, nonprofit colleges and universities has been under $6,000. With smaller classes, more personal attention from faculty, and a better chance of graduating in four years, why not consider a Wisconsin private, nonprofit college?

Think "net", not "Sticker" Price

There can be a big difference between the published price of college tuition and what you ultimately pay. A Wisconsin private, nonprofit college financial aid package is designed specifically for your needs and can dramatically lower your costs. Subtract your financial aid award (grants and loans) from the tuition “sticker price” to find your actual “net” tuition. The average Wisconsin private, nonprofit college freshman financial aid package is made up of 77% grants and scholarships—money you won’t have to repay—instead of loans.
