Gaining Residency Status (Non-WWAMI out of region students)

VA Benefits

If you are a veteran eligible for VA benefits, you can find information specific to their office at the Veteran's Center

Budget Adjustments

The budget may be increased for computer (Laptop only)/pda (up to $3000), health insurance (student only), childcare or a dependent allowance. These costs may only be covered during the quarters students are enrolled, and may result in students needing the higher interest Graduate Plus loans. Forms are available in T-557, or e-mail somfao@uw.edu to request if off-site.

The budget cannot be increased to cover credit card debt, mortgage payments above room/board expenses already in budget, car payments, or costs related to applying to medical school or residency programs (application fees/interview costs/moving/travel). If student expenses are less than what is in the budget, they are encouraged to take out less.
