Four Years, Tuition Free For Qualifying Students

The SVSU Cardinal Commitment

At SVSU, we see your value and we are dedicated to helping you achieve your goals. We believe that the cost of tuition should not prevent you from taking the next step in your academic journey and future career. That’s why we developed the SVSU Cardinal Commitment.

This extensive financial aid package provides four years of free tuition for eligible first-time in college students in Michigan who have a family adjusted gross income of $50,000 or less and meet eligibility criteria.

Is your family income more than $50,000? We offer many additional scholarships for which you may be eligible or contact us to see how we can help you.
