The Alumni Legacy Nonresident Scholarship is a new program implemented July 1, 2009 for the 2009-2010 award year that allows children of Weber State alumni who live out of state to attend WSU and pay in-state tuition. This represents a savings of $4,000.00 per semester.

* Effective July 1, 2013 for the 2013-2014 award year, grandchildren of Weber State alumni may also receive this benefit.

WSU offers small classes, the opportunity to work with faculty mentors on undergraduate research and service learning, and a variety of extracurricular opportunities.

To qualify for the Alumni Legacy Nonresident Scholarship, the student must:
  • Be admitted and enrolled at WSU in an undergraduate program.
  • Have at least one parent or grandparent who has earned an associate degree or higher from WSU. (Verification is required.)
  • Be a first time student in the Utah system of higher education when enrolling at WSU.


  1. This nonresident tuition waiver pays the ‘nonresident’ portion of tuition for a full time student (12-18 credits). It is available for 8 semesters (Fall and Spring semesters only). Summer semester does not count as part of the 8 semester limit.
  2. The student is responsible for resident tuition and any applicable fees.
  3. Nonresident students pay only resident tuition if they attend summer semester.
