So you want to be a Falcon?

Welcome! We’re glad to have you.

Tuition Deposit

Reserve your spot now

Our deposit deadline for the fall semester is May 1. A $200 tuition deposit must be made to reserve your spot. Students who deposit by February 15 will be granted Summer Orientation and housing placement priority. You’ll also gain access to our student portal—your one-stop shop for email, financial aid, housing applications, and more.

Financial Aid

It's never too early to start thinking about financial aid

Our financial aid application process begins October 1. Visit with your PRIOR year taxes and our school code, 003842, to complete your FAFSA. Financial Aid packages are released to accepted students in December. If you’re accepted after December, your package will be released following the aforementioned steps.


Falcon Days

Falcon Days are a required part of new student orientation. These days are designed for all new incoming falcons, whether you're a transfer student or incoming first-year student. The goal of Falcon Days is to provide all the tools you need to feel prepared for your life as a student. Learn about residential and commuter life, get your financial aid questions answered, and connect with resources that will aid your transition to CUW.
