University of Wisconsin System President Ray Cross announced June 7 that application fees will be waived, effective immediately and through Sept. 7, for students applying to any of the 13 two-year UW Colleges campuses for the upcoming fall 2018 term. Read the news release announcing the application fee waiver.
Application Fee Waiver Details:
- AAS program at the 2-yr campuses (fee waiver in effect through September 7)
- UW Colleges Online (fee waiver in effect through November 1)
- AAS Flex (fee waiver in effect through November 1)
As part of a restructuring initiative, the UW Colleges campuses will be joined with the System’s four-year comprehensive and research institutions as branch campuses effective July 1, 2018, pending formal approval by the Higher Learning Commission later this month. A primary goal of the restructuring is to expand higher education opportunities available to students. The one-time application fee waivers are intended to eliminate one possible barrier for prospective students during the transition.
