The Husky Promise is...

...more than just a promise. It's a guarantee to Washington state students from low-income and lower-middle-income families that finances won't keep them from reaching their goals and realizing their potential if they are admitted to the University of Washington.

We believe...


...that students from all economic backgrounds should have the opportunity to attend the University of Washington.

Finances should not be a barrier to getting a world-class education. Already, about half of our students receive some form of financial aid, and more than one-third of incoming freshmen will be the first in their families to earn a bachelor's degree.

To ensure that the UW remains affordable, the Husky Promise guarantees that full tuition and standard fees will be covered by grant or scholarship support for eligible students. These grants and scholarships do not have to be repaid.

Students who qualify for the Husky Promise can be assured that if tuition increases, the financial aid they receive will increase as well.
