Titan National Scholars

Titans come from all around the world to study, learn and grow. With your high academic standing, you could earn four years of Wisconsin in-state tuition!

The University of Wisconsin Oshkosh, one of Wisconsin’s leading four-year universities, launched Titan National Scholars in 2015 to honor and reward high-achieving students from across the country.

Titan National Scholars are an exclusive group of nonresident first-year and transfer students who receive an impressive academic scholarship. The scholarship brings the cost of tuition for nonresident students in line with Wisconsin’s low-cost, in-state tuition.

Starting SPRING 2021, Titan National Scholar will not require an ACT/SAT score. Non-resident students are eligible for TNS as long as they meet the following cumulative, unweighted high school GPA requirements:


Oshkosh Campus: 2.6+


Fox Cities/Fond du Lac Campus: 2.5+
