Students should apply now for financial aid through the FAFSA

Find out if you are eligible for free money for college! Most MPS students qualify for some form of financial aid. All students planning to attend a two-year or four-year college should fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) now. After your FAFSA is completed, you will find out if you are eligible for free money and low-cost loans to pay for college.

MPS is hosting an "I Love FAFSA" Workshop Saturday, February 24 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Greater New Birth Church, located at 8237 W. Silver Spring Drive in Milwaukee, WI.

Students hoping to receive free tuition through the Promise Program with Milwaukee Area Technical College (MATC) must complete the FAFSA by February 1, 2017. MATC Promise provides free college tuition for area high school graduates who meet eligibility requirements. Find out more about MATC Promise.

Students who complete their FAFSA early may be eligible for greater funding. Deadlines to receive financial aid vary by individual colleges and universities. Loans are also available to help with college costs. Some scholarships will also request a copy of your FAFSA.

Assistance with the FAFSA is available! MPS students – visit your school counselor or stop in any College and Career Center, located in most MPS high schools. For a list of all locations and hours, visit the College and Career Center web page.
