The cost of college and how to pay for it is often a major barrier to going back to school. Beginning in February 2021, students in UW-Milwaukee’s bachelor’s degree in Health Sciences—offered through the UW Flexible Option format—can apply for federal financial aid to help ease that financial burden. Federal financial aid is a mix of grants and loans with affordable interest rates that students can use to fund their return to college.
“Students can now use federal financial aid to help cover the cost of their education,” said Melissa Haberman, Director of Financial Aid for the UW Flexible Option. “This is a great opportunity to help students earn their degree who otherwise might not have been able to.”
In addition to awarding financial aid, the UW Flexible Option recently unveiled the Flex Tuition Guarantee. A student’s tuition will never increase as long as they remain actively enrolled in the program. This means UW Flexible Option students do not need to worry about rising educational costs: what they see is what they pay, from start to finish.
The UW Flexible Option has long been committed to affordability. Our flat rate tuition model—where you take as many courses as you want for one single flat rate—has helped our students better manage both their total educational costs and the amount of time it takes to complete their degree. You’ll pay a low-rate, locked-in tuition to enable you to cross ‘earning a degree’ off your goal list.
Earning your bachelors in health sciences is a great move for your career in a rapidly growing industry. It can open doors in a wide range of healthcare fields or graduate programs.
