Scholarship Information


 Medical College of Wisconsin Capitation Credit

Each year, the College admits approximately one-half of its entering class from its Wisconsin applicant pool. All acceptances offered to applicants claiming to be Wisconsin residents will be contingent upon confirmation of their residency status by the Higher Educational Aids Board (HEAB), located in Madison, WI.

To apply for Wisconsin residency for tuition purposes, you will need to complete the Wisconsin Residency Determination form. Mail the form and supporting documentation to HEAB at the address listed on the form. The state of Wisconsin will provide Wisconsin residents a capitation credit of approximately $5,000 which will be applied toward tuition for the 2014-2015 academic year. The Capitation amount is an estimate based upon Wisconsin resident enrollment and is subject to change each academic year.
