What the SAU Cougar Commitment covers

  • Costs for full-time tuition and fees during the fall and spring semesters for as long as the student remains eligible.

What the SAU Cougar Commitment doesn’t cover

  • Families are responsible for room and board charges; however, federal loans may be applied toward these costs.
  • This program does not account for possible tuition and fee increases in future academic years, which will be the responsibility of the student.
