The 2024-25 FAFSA® is available during it’s soft launch, but expect possible maintenance pauses, waiting rooms, and other delays through January 2024.

UW-Madison’s December 1st Priority Date has been waived for the 2024-25 FAFSA®.

To assist students in completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®), the Office of Student Financial Aid is hosting a FAFSA Frenzy with in-person events throughout the spring term.

Attending Frenzy

You should bring with you and have ready…

  • Your laptop. Don’t have a laptop? We’ll have a few available for you to use.
  • Your FSA ID/password. Forgot? Visit the Federal Student Aid website to retrieve them.
  • NEW for 2024-25! If you’ll need your parent (or if you’re married, your spouse) to provide their information on your FAFSA®, you’ll need their name, social security number, birthdate, and email address to invite them to your form.
    • Contributors (student, student’s spouse, and/or parent) will provide their own financial and other information on the FAFSA, will only be able to see questions relating to their specific role, and will also need their own FSA ID to log in.
    • If they haven’t already, encourage your parent (or if you’re married, your spouse) to create their own FSA ID.

We’ll have…

  • Our team of FAFSA experts to answer your questions and help you through the application.
  • Free Food for you to enjoy!
