FASFA due date approaches

WAUSAU (WAOW)--April 15th is not just the due date for taxes. That's also the priority date for college students to file their free FAFSA application.

Current and new college students need to complete their application for the next school year before that date in order to receive their maximum eligible aid.

"After a certain point, there may be grants that are not available if they apply for financial aid late. I think historically, sometimes UW college students have waited a while to do that," says the Assistant Director of Student Services, Annette hackbarth-Onson.

Administrators from UW-Marathon County say last year, students at UW colleges missed out $2.5 million of aid.

The financial aid comes as grants, loans and work-study employment.
