A brief description of notable policies or programs to make the institution accessible and affordable to low-income students:
The Financial Aid Office offers online guides to their programs and has staff available for drop-in hours, phone and email correspondence. For matriculating students, Student Support Services offers Financial Aid and Scholarship Assistance. If a student and/or family has a change in financial circumstances, such as a loss of income or increased expenses, individual circumstances may be considered in the re-evaluation of financial aid eligibility. In some cases, the Financial Aid Office may be able to adjust income information based on these “special circumstances.” Students and/or their families may also experience increased mandatory expenses, such as additional medical/dental/disability expenses, required educational expenses, and/or transportation expenses, etc. In some cases, the Financial Aid Office may be able to adjust the student’s estimated Cost of Attendance (COA) based on these “special circumstances” as well. The state maintains 13 UW College campuses to serve as low-cost 2-year campuses with the goal of transferring to 4-year campuses like UW Oshkosh. Cost savings are a major justification for attendance at a UW College. UW Oshkosh works with UW System to maximize transfer of credits from UW Colleges. UW Oshkosh also works with the state Technical colleges to develop transfer agreements and 2+2 programs for student wishing to transfer.
