If you want help paying for school, it all starts with submitting your Free Application For Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA is available beginning October 1.
Step 1: Submit Your FAFSA
It’s important to complete and submit your FAFSA.
Step 2: Financial Aid is Awarded
After your FAFSA is processed, you’ll receive an award letter from the financial aid office with details on your financial aid package. It’s good for one academic year and lists each source of aid and the amounts. If you have any questions we encourage you to reach out to a UW campus directly and their contact information is listed below.
Need Help With Your FAFSA?
Financial aid counselors at universities across the UW System are available to help parents and students successfully complete the form. UW financial aid counselors can provide assistance regardless of where a student ultimately decides to go to college. To schedule a time with one of our counselors, please use the contact information listed above.
