1. Enroll at UW-Stout
You may apply for aid before being accepted for admission but you must be admitted to UW-Stout before you can receive any aid. Learn about how to apply to UW-Stout.
2. Complete the FAFSA
To apply for grants, scholarships, loans and work-study, you'll need to fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA application collects the data needed to determine your eligibility for financial aid. All information submitted is confidential, and must be filed for each academic year. You can submit the FAFSA application online for free at studentaid.gov. For faster processing, apply for a Federal Student Aid ID (FSAID) at studentaid.gov and sign your FAFSA electronically.
Priority filing deadline: please submit by March 15 prior to your first semester.
