Returning Student

Apply for financial aid

If you are a current UWEC student who has already applied for financial aid before, you must re-apply for financial aid each year you plan to attend and would like to receive aid. The process is a little different than when you applied the first time. Find the step-by-step process on how to do so below.

Step 1

 In order to apply for financial aid as a returning student, you have two options. If you completed a FAFSA in the previous year, you can choose to simply renew your FAFSA with updated information or complete a new FAFSA.  If you do not have a FAFSA on file from the previous year, you will need to complete a new FAFSA. You can renew or apply as early as October 1st. The UWEC school code is: 003917

Step 2

You can check your financial aid status within My Blugold CampS and provide any additional information requested.  Your financial aid file must be complete before you can be awarded financial aid.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The federal government will select some students to complete a verification of their financial aid application. If you are selected, you will be contacted by UWEC and we will work closely with you to compile documents needed for verification. 

Step 3

You will receive a financial aid award from UWEC. UWEC starts to award continuing students after spring semester grades have run. You will be sent a notification via email and you will be able to view the financial aid you were offered in CampS.

Step 4

Review your financial aid package and decide to accept or decline your loans.

Note: If you have military or veteran status, there are additional benefits and resources available to you.
