Because UW-Eau Claire manages admissions for the MBA Consortium, you will apply for financial aid through the UW-Eau Claire Office of Financial Aid. You cannot be enrolled as a “Special Student” and receive financial aid.
You are urged to submit your application for financial aid as early as possible.
To apply, you must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
Subsidized loans, available through the federal government, do not accrue interest or require repayment until after you are no longer enrolled in school on a half time basis.

You qualify for a subsidized loan based on financial need, as determined under federal regulations. Although the UW-Eau Claire Financial Aid Office determines the amount you may borrow based on the results of your financial aid application, there are limits as to the annual amount you may borrow each year. Contact the financial aid office to discuss options and learn what’s available.
