Costs & Financial Aid

Fall 2021 Costs & Financial Aid

Costs for the SU Bridges program are split between SU and WWCC. Financial aid is available for eligible students through WWCC for the fall semester.

Once students have been admitted into SU Bridges, students must reply to our offer of admission using the Bridges Reply Form found in their Admissions Status Portal. Once a student accepts their offer of admission, a payment link will appear, and you will be able to submit your $300 non-refundable enrollment deposit. If you have any questions regarding the enrollment process, please reach out to us at

Students pay WWCC for tuition, which is based on their county of residence. Students pay SU for their room, meal plan, program fee (based on state of residency) and orientation. In addition to the direct costs billed by WWCC and SU, students should also anticipate paying for books which are approximately $650 per semester and their own personal expenses.

At least 12 credits must be taken through WWCC, and one course may be taken through SU.

**Note: Notwithstanding any other provision of this or any other University publication, the University reserves the right to make changes to tuition, fees and other charges at any time such changes are deemed necessary by the University and/or the University System of Maryland Board of Regents.

Financial aid is processed through WWCC for the fall semester and SU for the spring semester. FAFSA results should be directed to both institutions for financial aid to be processed for the appropriate semesters (Title IV Code: WWCC – 013842; SU – 002091).

To learn more about the financial aid process for SU, please see the Financial Aid Website.

Should a student receive a financial aid award from WWCC that exceeds their WWCC tuition charge, the difference will be processed for the student as a refund check. The proceeds from this check are then applied to the charges from SU including room, meal plan and Bridges program fees. If the expected refund is less than the amount of the student’s SU charges, payment of the remaining cost should be made to SU by the billing deadline of August 1, 2021. Refund checks will be delivered by WWCC to the SU Cashier Office in late October. A student receiving a refund check will need to sign the check over to SU to cover remaining charges. If there is still an excess of funding left after the SU charges are satisfied, SU will process a second check for the remaining refund balance.
