Costs, tuition and fees

When planning out your budget for your college career, please keep in mind a few items that you may be required to pay for.

  1. Tuition: Tuition for the current academic year is $360 per credit. This total includes segregated fees, differential tuition fees and municipal fees. 
  2. Specific course fees: A handful of our courses require students to pay specific course fees. Those nominal fees will be communicated to you by your instructors before the start of the course. 
  3. Textbooks: Students will be given the titles, editions and authors of their required textbooks. Books can be purchased through our University Bookstore, but many students look online for deals on used textbooks. 

For more information on University of Wisconsin Oshkosh student fees, please contact the Student Accounts office at (920) 424-3318 or e-mail

Aid, Scholarships and Grants

Online students have options for paying for school.

Federal Application Form for Student Aid (FAFSA)

The federal government offers financial aid in terms of grants, loans and work study. Financial aid is largely granted in terms of student need. Please visit the Financial Aid Office website for more information on how and when to apply for FAFSA. 

Tuition Reimbursement

Many employers offer partial or full tuition reimbursement to employees who are attending college. Check with your company’s human resources department to find out if any educational benefits are offered. If your employer offers a tuition reimbursement policy you may qualify to defer your tuition. Speak with one of our advisors to discuss this option.


There are many public and private scholarships that UW Oshkosh online students qualify for. The Financial Aid Office keeps a running list of available scholarships, and we recommend you start there. Additionally, there are several reputable scholarship search engines, including: 
  • Broke Scholar: Online scholarship search engine that allows you to search for scholarships that apply directly to you.
  • College Board: A collection of public and private scholarships that allow you to fill out a questionnaire to match you with the appropriate scholarships.
