Wane State Univeristy is committed to making education affordable and accessible to all students, and has the lowest tuition rate of the state's three research universities (Michigan State University and the University of Michigan are the others). WSU students received more than $244 million in financial aid in 2006-2007. WSU has worked diligently to keep tuition costs down even while facing diminishing state support.
Many students receive financial assisstance that helps them afford to live in a university residence hall. These facilities are only steps away from libraries, labs, classrooms and the Recreation and Fitness Center, providing students an important residential experience and a closer connection to campus life.
