The Return to Wisconsin program was designed to encourage alumni to help keep UW-Whitewater in the family. Available at only a handful of UW campuses, Return to Wisconsin offers non-residents a 25% discount on out-of-state tuition, provided a parent, guardian, or grandparent had previously graduated from UW-Whitewater.

To qualify, be sure to check the box on the application that asks if any of these family members graduated from the institution to which you are applying (meaning did they graduate from UW-Whitewater). We'll follow-up with some paperwork to ask to who it is you are referencing, check with the registrar's office to confirm a degree was posted to the individual you identified,'re done! We'll assign a code to your file that will automatically recalculate your tuition charges each semester to include the 25% discount each semester.

Touted more like a "legacy" program, it is important to mention that Return to Wisconsin is not a program that impacts an admission decision. It serves only as a method of incentive that impacts tuition charges only.

For more information, contact the UW-Whitewater Office of Admissions by email at or by phone at 262-472-1440.
