Free Application for
Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
Seniors, if you plan on attending college next year and have not completed a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), now is the time! Completing and submitting the FAFSA is the only way to gain access to federal grants, loans, and other forms of federal financial aid. The FAFSA gives you access to state and institutional aid as well. Most aid is first come, first served, so the earlier your FAFSA is completed, the more financial aid is still available.
If you have not begun the FAFSA, if you have begun the application but could not finish, or if you have general questions about the FAFSA, please stop into the College and Career Centers! Advisors are here to assist you from start to finish, making sure that the correct information is entered and all questions you have are answered. We are here to help!
Milwaukee Public Schools, in collaboration with local, state, and national partners, operates two community-based centers within the greater Milwaukee area —a College and Career Center on the north side region of Milwaukee and a College Access Center on the south-side region of Milwaukee.
These centers provide students and families with direct services that are easily accessible via public transportation and close to resources that families typically frequent, such as grocery stores and other retail ventures. These community-based locations support the college access outreach efforts of Milwaukee Public Schools and engage families in the support and reinforcement of college attendance for Milwaukee students in centers focused on college attainment.
