Great Lakes Award

Award details for students starting in the Fall 2023 will be posted later this fall.

Undergraduate students who are residents of a state or province bordering a Great Lake enjoy an award that reduces the non-resident tuition rate. Great Lakes Award recipients receive a tuition benefit at only 10 percent above resident rates — a savings of thousands of dollars each semester.

If you are a degree-seeking student from Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin or Ontario you will receive this award.
