Financial Aid

Even though terms are 8 weeks long, students must register at the beginning of the traditional 16-week semester for all the credits for which they want to receive financial aid. For example, if you would like financial aid as a half-time student, you must be enrolled for 6 credits on the 10th day of the traditional 16-week semester. Students may owe a repayment of their financial aid if they do not begin classes in their second set of 8-week BPS courses. Contact the UW-Eau Claire Financial Aid Office with questions.
