Free Application for Federal Student Aid

Every year, the federal government provides over $150 billion in financial aid. To apply for this aid, you must submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). State government and some institutional aid are also awarded based on your FAFSA information, so apply even if you think you won’t qualify for aid.

File the FAFSA online as early as Oct. 1.
List the UW-Platteville school code 003921 for our three campuses.
The priority date (not a deadline) for filing the FAFSA is Feb. 1.
