The Office of Student Financial Aid assists students whose personal and family resources are not adequate to cover the cost of attendance involved in attending UW-Madison. The office also offers counseling to students to help them manage their money effectively, debt management counseling, and information on such other potential sources of financial assistance as departmental and non-university scholarships, and UW and off-campus employment.
Financial aid available through the Office of Student Financial Aid consists of loans, grants, and work-study assistance. The office provides small short-term loans for emergency situations, as well.
Funds for these aid programs come from the federal government, the state of Wisconsin, and the University. The office is among the five largest such offices in the United States in terms of dollars handled and applications processed.
Residence for Tuition Purposes is administered by the UW-Madison Office of the Registrar.
Complete detailed information on applying for financial aid is available on the web site.
