To be considered for all types of financial aid, we recommend filing the FAFSA by UW Oshkosh's March 15 priority filing date. Regardless of filing date, all students are encouraged to submit the FAFSA.

Students filing by March 15 can expect a financial aid package awarded around April 1. For more information about federal financial aid, visit the FAFSA website at and use the FAFSA4Caster to estimate your potential federal financial aid.
