Financial Impact and Highlights
The University of Washington is a strong, vibrant and financially healthy organization. A Sustainable Academic Business Plan, continued investments, strong financial support and the use of Lean methodologies to streamline operations to effectively manage our resources, helps ensure that our students receive the highest quality learning experience.
The UW remains one of the best universities in the world as demonstrated by our Aaa Moody’s bond ratings, while also maintaining need-blind admissions. Our student body continues to reflect excellence in both quality and diversity, with 9,553 UW resident undergraduate students eligble to pay no tuition and fees through the Husky Promise program, which provides guaranteed coverage for full tuition and standard fees by grants or scholarships for eligible Washington state residents.
