This is a new program that started in September of 2017. Further questions about it can be directed to the Office of Financial Aid. See this news item about it.

The Badger Promise is a commitment to Wisconsin resident, first-generation college students. The program guarantees a period of free tuition and segregated fees to those who have successfully transferred from any of the two-year UW Colleges or from liberal arts associate degree programs at Madison College (Madison Area Technical College), Milwaukee Area Technical College, Nicolet College, the College of Menominee Nation, and the Lac Courte Oreilles Ojibwa Community College.

• Qualifying Wisconsin residents whose parents did not graduate from a four-year college will receive grant/scholarship aid of up to two (2) semesters of in-state tuition and segregated fees (currently $10,534 for full-time enrollment).

• Those who have shown Federal Pell Grant eligibility at UW-Madison will receive up to four (4) semesters of in-state tuition and segregated fees (currently $21,067 for full-time enrollment).
