Qualified out-of-state and international students can pay close to our affordable in-state rate for tuition and fees. This will save New York State residents, Pennsylvania residents, and others living outside New Jersey approximately $9,000 per year ($4,500 per semester) for undergraduates, and about $400 per credit for graduate students (please note: the waiver is not available for doctoral programs.)
Please note that the following criteria apply for the out-of-state/international tuition differential waiver:
Incoming Freshmen: A new first-time freshman may receive the Pioneer Award for up to eight uninterrupted semesters or until the semester in which the minimum credits required for their degree program are completed (usually 120). The waiver may be applied to Summer and Winter sessions that takeplace prior to their program completion.
Incoming Transfers: A new, first-time transfer student may receive the Pioneer Award for up to seven uninterrupted semesters, depending on the number of credits transferred to William Paterson University, or until the semester in which the minimum credits required for their degree program are completed (usually 120). The waiver may be applied to Summer and Winter sessions that take place prior to their program completion.
Incoming Graduate Students: A new first-time graduate student may receive the Pioneer Award for the minimum number of credits required to complete their program. The waiver may be applied to Fall, Winter, Spring, or Summer courses.
Current Continuing Students: A current WP out-of-state or international student may receive the Pioneer Award beginning in fall 2020, as noted under the criteria above.
