UWSP waives application fee
No cost to apply through October
For the City Times
The University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point (UWSP) is offering a no-cost application period in October.
Through the entire month, anyone can apply to any of the UW-Stevens Point campuses for the fall of 2021 without paying the application fee.
“The UW-Stevens Point College of Fine Arts and Communication, College of Letters and Science, College of Natural Resources, College of Professional Studies, and the UWSP Foundation have located funds to be allocated for this purpose,” a university release said.
“October is a great month to apply to a university or college of choice. In addition to the no-cost application period, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) officially opens on Oct. 1. By completing applications for UW-Stevens Point and Federal Student Aid in similar time frames, students are able to seek assistance for both applications at the same time.”
“University leadership, along with the UWSP Foundation, acknowledge financial barriers for students and are committed to supporting students. We are covering the application fees in October, offering additional scholarship opportunities and providing increased support in completing the FAFSA to make applying to all three UWSP campuses easier,“ said Marc Young, director of admissions and recruitment.
UW-Stevens Point offers students more than 100 program options, including 80 bachelors and 16 graduate degree programs. This includes new bachelors and professional associate degree programs at branch campuses in Wausau and Marshfield.
To take advantage of this free application period, students will need to apply using the UW System application at https://apply.wisconsin.edu or the common application at www.commonapp.org/school/university-wisconsin-stevens-point.
