Financial Aid

IMPORTANT

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19), the Department of Financial Aid, Student Employment, and Military Education Benefits will be physically closed until further notice. The best way to contact us is via e-mail, though you may leave us a phone message to receive a call back. Learn more below.

If you have an epanther ID, you do have access to information about items that you may still need to submit and any aid offered to you. You can review our PAWS Tutorial if you need help accessing your account.

The best way to submit any documents is via mail or fax. Many students will also email documents, but if you choose this option, please mask any social security numbers as email is not secure. If you have questions, we encourage you to review our website, Ask Pounce, or submit them via email to finaid@uwm.edu. Staff will continue to respond to emails and to process paperwork as quickly as possible. Thank you for your understanding and patience. Mail, phone, and fax information is below.
