2024-2025 FAFSA is available
The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is open for the 2024-2025 academic year, which includes fall 2024, spring 2025, and summer 2025. Anyone who wishes to be considered for grants, federal loans, or Federal Work-Study must complete the FAFSA, using UW-Whitewater's school code of 003926, every year.
As part of a “soft launch” expected to last during the month of January, the U.S. Department of Education will have the 2024-2025 FAFSA available for intermittent periods of time as it monitors performance and makes any needed technical updates. This may result in the site being down temporarily:
- The FAFSA site should be available from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Central Time during upcoming weekdays. Information on weekend hours of availability has not been provided.
- If you find the FAFSA site down for maintenance, please be patient and check back regularly for availability. The Department of Education anticipates making the FAFSA increasingly available throughout January.
The 2024-2025 FAFSA is found at fafsa.gov:
- File the 2024-2025 FAFSA by March 1, 2024, and submit all documents requested by the Financial Aid Office within a month of that date for consideration for a few smaller aid programs with limited funding.
- Note that UW-Whitewater will not begin receiving processed FAFSA applications until the end of January, as full FAFSA processing by the Department of Education will not start until late January.
