Putting a college education within your reach that's the Wayne State Guarantee

In partnership with the Michigan Achievement Scholarship, Wayne State University is expanding its financial aid programs to include a new tuition assistance program that will cover 100% of tuition and fees for eligible students with a combination of federal, state and WSU scholarships and grants. That's right: Qualified students will have zero out-of- pocket expenses for up to four years of full-time study.

The Wayne State Guarantee is open to all Pell Grant-eligible Michigan residents, as well as most families who earn $70,000 or less and have $50,000 or less in assets. First-year students will be automatically considered for this award when they are admitted to Wayne State and submit a FAFSA.

With the addition of the Wayne State Guarantee to WSU's scholarship and financial aid programs, 50% of incoming first-year students will have zero out-of-pocket expenses for tuition and fees part of the more than $350 million in aid awarded annually by the university.
