Bullhorn pointing to text that reads 2024-25 Better FAFSA Soft Launch.

The 2024-25 FAFSA® is available during it’s soft launch! Read more about applying for financial aid with a Better FAFSA®.

We’ve added two April FAFSA Frenzy dates with free lunch and help to get those FAFSA’s done; April 5 and April 26th in our SSTAR Lab!

UW–Madison will not have a FAFSA® Priority Date for 2024-25.

We’ve begun receiving 2024-25 FAFSA®s, but there’s a lot to be done before we can send out financial aid offers. We’ll be in contact with students via email in the coming weeks, if we need anything else or as soon as an offer is available. And remember, emails will always be sent to your wisc.edu email account, unless you haven’t yet set it up, then it will go to your preferred email.
