ELIGIBILITY: To be eligible for Wisconsin state financial aid, a student must:

  • Be a resident of the state of Wisconsin
  • Have a high school diploma, GED, or equivalent
  • Be enrolled in an undergraduate degree or certificate program
  • Be attending a non-profit college or university based in Wisconsin

See the individual program descriptions (below) for specific exceptions.

Eligibility for need-based state financial aid programs is determined using the data from the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA may be filled-out and submitted online at http://www.fafsa.ed.gov. Paper copies of the FAFSA are available from college and university financial aid offices or high school guidance offices.

State statutes prohibit students from receiving state financial aid who are:

  • Not registered with Selective Service, if required to register.
  • Listed on the Department of Workforce Development’s statewide Child Support Lien Docket, unless the student has an approved payment plan. (Students on the Lien Docket may still receive AES and state loans.)
