For eligible students, Wichita State will use sources such as scholarships, grants
or tuition exemptions that come from the federal, state and institutional levels to
cover tuition and fees for up to 15 credit hours each semester. Shocker Promise will
replace any previously awarded General institutional scholarships and may be combined
with WSU Foundation private scholarships up to tuition and fees.
Funding is limited and will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis to those
who meet all requirements. If selected as a recipient, smaller previously awarded
WSU freshmen scholarships will be replaced with the Shocker Promise. The Shocker Promise
is a 4-year, last-payee scholarship designed to cover remaining costs associated with
up to 15 credit hours each semester of your tuition and fees and after applying all
other gift aid, including waivers, scholarships and grants.
