Financial Aid: What you need to know 

Sheila Trotter
Assistant Director of Financial Aid
Students come from many different backgrounds, and have unique needs and concerns. But if there is one universal questions, it would have to be, "How am I going to pay for this?" Financial aid is an option for many students, but it can often be a confusing process.

Fortunately, the UW-Platteville Financial Aid Office has a dedicated staff that can help you find the best financial aid options for your situation.
Small sacrifice, big rewards 

David Wilhelmi
Distance Education Leadership Student
Education is one of the few things Dave Wilhelmi covets more than a hole-in-one on the golf course. So when he decided to pursue a master's degree in distance education leadership (DEL), he was willing to make the sacrifice and put away his clubs. 

Distance education students like Wilhelmi must have strong time management skills to succeed. Learn how Wilhelmi is earning his degree from a hotel room while on location for his job. Read more.
