ADMISSIONS

  • Financial Aid

    The Financial Aid Office is here to assist you and your family with the process and guidelines of financing your education. We will work with you to ensure that you have a clear understanding of your financial aid options while attending WSU.

    Because financial aid packages vary based on students’ unique circumstances, we will assign a financial aid counselor to work with you throughout your academic years at WSU. An ongoing relationship with your financial aid counselor will help you with any questions and concerns in a comfortable and supportive environment.

    If any financial difficulties arise unexpectedly, be sure to contact the Financial Aid Office to make an appointment with your counselor.


  • Mailing Policy

    From September to May (but not between semesters), the Financial Aid Office sends mail to students via their residence hall mail box, if they reside on campus, or to their home address, if they do not reside on campus. During the summer months everything is mailed to the home address. Whenever possible, the Financial Aid Office also sends announcements to students through the regular What’s Up at Woo University emails.

    Application for Financial Aid for 2015-2016

    All students applying for financial assistance for the 2015-2016 Academic Year must:

    1. First complete your 2014 IRS income tax return. Although the IRS allows you to file your taxes through April 15th, it is in your best interest to file your taxes earlier to have access to all possible funds for which you may be eligible.
    2. Next go to www.fafsa.gov to complete your FAFSA on-line using the IRS Data Retrieval Process (the fastest, easiest and most secure way to complete the FAFSA).
    3. Then print and complete a 2015-2016 WSU Financial Aid Application.
