Paying for College

Students and their families often find themselves deciding between a quality education and an affordable one. Why settle for one when you can have both?

Parkside is the most affordable four-year university in the University of Wisconsin System. We offer an amazing education — small class sizes, great facilities, unique opportunities, and personal attention — that still fits your budget. 

Let us help you build a plan for paying for college and managing your money!  

Tuition and Fees

See the projected housing, dining, and tuition costs for the upcoming academic year. Use our Net Price Calculator to see specifically how these numbers could apply to you. You'll also find estimates for books and supplies, personal expenses, and transportation costs.

Financial Aid Eligibility

Submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Find out if the Wisconsin/Minnesota Reciprocity, Return to WI, or Out of State Scholar programs are right for you. Speak with a Financial Aid advisor who can provide finance management advice.


Now more than ever, your college education is one of the most important investments you can make in your future. Scholarships, loans, and grants can change lives and open up opportunities that otherwise would be unobtainable.  Learn more about how we can help make your educational dreams a reality.
