Financial Aid and Scholarships
There are many ways to support your education while in school.
- WMU offers extensive financial aid.
- The College of Engineering and Applied Sciences offers engineering-specific financial aid.
- The State of Michigan offers resources on their Web site.
- Partner community colleges offer financial aid through the Financial Aid Consortium
- Information and application forms are available from your program advisor and at the regional centers.
- Many companies reimburse their employees for part or all of their tuition and materials. Check with your company's human resources office to see if assistance is available.
Differential Tuition - Student Scholarship (Pilot Program Spring 2013)
Manufacturing Engineering Department, Manufacturing Engineering Program
- As most, but not all, of our students get tuition remission from their employers; we would first identity students who are not reimbursed for their tuition and earmark them for the scholarship, up to the amount of their tuition. Depending on the funding available, we will prorate the actual scholarship amount (to each student) based upon total funding available, number of eligible students, and their actual tuition bill.
- We propose to distribute any remaining scholarship money to students who are registered for on-line courses that have a laboratory component. If a student is enrolled in multiple on-line courses with a laboratory they could receive a scholarship for each such course. As above, we will prorate the actual scholarship amount based upon total funding available, number of eligible students and the number of on-line courses they register for that have a laboratory component.
In either case a student’s maximum scholarship would be limited to the amount of their tuition bill. Students would only be eligible for a single scholarship per semester (no double dipping allowed), i.e. they would receive 1 or 2 above, but not both.
