Scholarships and Financial Aid Available

Upon receipt of the FAFSA, the information is included in a computerized process of financial aid allocation that analyzes need. An applicant's qualifications such as residency status and class level and the available funding that remains in each program are used to develop a 'package' of financial aid. It contains possible student loans, work-study allotment, grants, and scholarships the student is eligible to receive.

Federal subsidized, and unsubsidized loans cover the cost of education at an institution of higher learning. Direct PLUS Loans are offered by the U.S. Department of Education to eligible parents and professional and graduate students through a school's participation in the Direct Loan Program. Only undergraduate students with exceptional financial need are typically awarded federal Pell Grants. A Pell Grant is not repaid unless there are circumstances that require repayment for all or part of the grant.

Requirements to Qualify for In-State Tuition

In relation to other states, Wyoming falls in the medium difficulty range. After a one-year domicile period, those who have established a residence and are willing to work at least part-time and maintain some financial independence can earn in-state status. Unlike many states, students are allowed to live in a dorm. Students live and attend a Wyoming college and qualify for in-state tuition by their sophomore year.

As a member of the Western Undergraduate Exchange, Wyoming has a limited reciprocity agreement with other members of the select Western States. There are many restrictions. A limited number of students pay 150 percent of the Wyoming in-state tuition. Many popular universities do not participate. Most limit the number of recipients. Often colleges restrict the award to particular majors. Applying does not automatically award a better rate. Every college has policies and implementations of its own. Students have to remain a resident of their home state.
