A brief description of notable policies or programs to make the institution accessible and affordable to low-income students:

The Pell Grant is available to high need undergraduate students seeking their first undergraduate degree. Student’s eligibility is determined by the federal need analysis formula. The amount of the Pell Grant varies depending on the information supplied on the FAFSA and whether a student goes full-time or part-time.

The Federal Supplemental Education Opportunity Grant is awarded to undergraduate students with high need and is awarded in addition to the Federal Pell Grant. Eligibility is also based on the availability of funds.

This is a state funded grant available to undergraduate Wisconsin residents pursing their first undergraduate degree who have high need as determined by the state formula. Students must be enrolled for at least six credits and can receive the grant for a maximum of 10 semesters.

The Talent Incentive Program (TIP) Grant provides grant assistance to the most financially needy and educationally disadvantaged undergraduate Wisconsin resident students. First-time freshmen students are nominated for the TIP Grant by the school financial aid offices or by counselors of the Wisconsin Educational Opportunity Programs (WEOP). To continue to receive the TIP Grant, students must show financial need. Eligibility cannot exceed ten semesters and is only available for six years after the initial grant is awarded. Funding for the TIP Grant is provided by both the State of Wisconsin and the Federal Government.

Federal Work Study is one of the Title IV federal financial aid programs. It is awarded to students based on their demonstrated financial need using information from the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Through this program students may earn up to the amount listed on their financial aid award letter and their wages will be subsidized by the federal government. Due to this subsidy, some employers require students with Federal Work Study awards and their job postings will state this. If a student does not qualify for Federal Work Study they apply for any position listed as Regular.
