The University of Wisconsin-Platteville Non-Resident Tuition Award for Counseling Psychology Students is available to students based on the following criteria:
The tuition reduction offers half of the enrolled credits at the in-state rate, with the remaining half at the out-of-state rate. To maintain eligibility for this award, the student must maintain a 3.00 or higher cumulative grade point average, and carry from 1 to 13 graduate credits. Students must submit an approval card ("pink card") for each semester at the time of registration for classes. The card must be signed by the Counseling Psychology Program Chair for endorsement. If the student is inactive for an academic semester, he/she may not be eligible for the award the next semester. Further eligibility will be dependent upon the remaining number of awards available.
Financial Support: Educational loans and work-study loans are available to graduate students who are regular degree-seeking students enrolled at least half time. Students enrolled as “special students” are not eligible for financial aid. To be considered for the programs listed below, a student must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
Need and funds available determine the amount of a loan. A loan is interest free while a student is enrolled at least half time. Thereafter, 5% interest is computed annually after a nine-month grace period for new borrowers.
The amount of a loan is determined by need. A loan is interest free while a student is enrolled at least half time. Thereafter, a variable interest rate (not to exceed 8.25%) is computed annually after a six-month grace period.
This loan is subject to the same terms and conditions as the Federal Stafford Loan up to the applicable Stafford limit. A loan will accrue interest while the student is enrolled in classes. Thereafter, a variable interest rate is computed annually after a six-month grace period.
Emergency loans are short-term loans made available through the University of Wisconsin-Platteville Foundation. These loans must be repaid within 30 days.
Graduate students who are eligible for educational entitlement from the Veterans Administration or from the Wisconsin Department of Veterans Affairs should contact the certifying official in the School of Graduate Studies for information and certification.
Students of color and disadvantaged students may apply for this grant to assist with payment of college costs. Consideration is based on academic potential and financial need.
