Out of State Students

Note: Our scholarship structure is changing, and MSEP will no longer be available beginning Fall 2019. Students may be eligible for the MSEP Program through Spring 2019. 

All undergraduate students from Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, and Ohio in an eligible degree seeking program qualify for the Midwest Student Exchange Program (MSEP) tuition rate which is equivalent to 150% of the resident rate.

New first-time students in the MSEP program may also qualify for one of our Midwest Scholarships.

More information about MSEP and Midwest Scholarship can be found on our Out of State Scholarships page. 

  Out of State Scholarships

Students from states other than Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, and Minnesota are charged the nonresident tuition rate. Each scholarship is prorated, based on the number of credits the student is enrolled in. Amounts listed represent full-time enrollment. These scholarships do not pertain to online courses or courses taken as consortium courses.

More information about Nonresident Scholarships can be found on our Out of State Scholarships page.

Check RangerMail during the fall semester for an email containing a link to the scholarship application for the following academic year.

The application will already contain some information about you, so you’ll focus on answering additional questions and completing short essays. Submit!

If you have been awarded a scholarship, you will receive an email notifying you of the scholarship and award amount. Next steps will be provided.

The 2019-2020 UW-Parkside General Scholarship Application process is now open. These scholarships will be awarded for the 2019-2020 academic year.
