Apply for aid for the 2014-2015 academic year by completing your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and listing UW Colleges Federal School Code: 003897. You will need to designate for which academic year you are applying and complete the FAFSA as instructed by including information for the corresponding period.
Verification Process and Providing Tax/Income Information
If selected for Verification, a student may have to provide forms and documents to the Student Financial Aid Office. In order to provide tax and income information, students (and parents for Dependent aid applicants) may use the FAFSA's IRS Data Retrieval Tool to import data directly from the IRS into the FAFSA or may request a Tax Return Transcript from the IRS.
