Get a jump-start on your financial aid!

If you need financial aid, you’ll need to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). We’ll have financial aid staff available at the La Crosse campus only during the Fall Open House.

Please note: The FAFSA is getting a makeover this year! We can assist with filing the 2023-2024 FAFSA for students starting at Western in Spring or Summer 2024. If you are starting at Western in Fall 2024 we can answer any questions and assist you in creating your FSA ID which will be used to sign your FAFSA when it is available for filing! To file the 2023-24 FAFSA you will need to bring your 2021 tax information (including W-2 forms).  For additional information on financial aid, contact Financial Aid Resources and Planning Services.

See you on October 11!
