Tuition + Financial Aid

Real financial aid help

Figuring out how you are going to pay for college can be stressful! Let us help you navigate the possible options of affording college by finding the right mix of grants, scholarships, work-study and loans.

For all UW-Eau Claire campuses, the FAFSA Federal School Code is 003917.

Cost of attendance and financial aid estimator

Follow the steps below to estimate your total cost of attendance for two semesters and the financial aid you might receive.

Before you can use this financial aid estimator, you will need to find out your Expected Family Contribution (EFC). If you've completed the FAFSA and already know your EFC, continue on to Step 2. Or, visit this site to estimate your EFC and select "Federal Methodology" when prompted to choose between federal and institutional: College Board EFC Calculator

Once you have your EFC, click the calculator icon below or use this link. The financial aid calculator will first ask you a few questions and calculate your estimated cost of attendance at UWEC.

You'll see your estimated cost of attendance totals for tuition, books and supplies, room and board, personal, and transportation. Then all you have to do is click the "Calculate Award Eligibility" button to view your ESTIMATED financial aid award. Remember:

  1. This is an ESTIMATE and not your actual financial aid award.
  2. You must complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to be eligible for an actual award. The FAFSA is available at www.FAFSA.ed.gov 
  3. Do not use an EFC of 0 (zero) unless the above calculator state you should use 0 (zero).

How do I apply for financial aid?

Financial aid is based on filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form found at fafsa.gov. Eligibility for any form of aid is based on filling out the FAFSA. Priority is given to students who complete the form by April 15.

For all UW-Eau Claire campuses, the FAFSA Federal School Code is 003917.
