APPLICATION FOR FINANCIAL AID FOR 2014-2015
 
All students applying for financial assistance for the 2014-2015 Academic Year must:
 
1. First complete your 2013 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 2014-2015 WSU Financial Aid Application.
 
 
VERIFICATION FORMS NOW ON-LINE!
 
This year the Financial Aid Office has put all of our verification forms on-line.
 
If you have received a MISSING ITEMS LETTER requesting that you complete verification documents please visit our Forms page (see link to the left) to print and complete the requested forms.
 
If you have not received a MISSING ITEMS LETTER requesting verification documents please do NOT print and complete forms.  Your Financial Aid counselor will determine if we need verification documents and request them accordingly.  Providing our office with forms we have not requested could delay the review of your file.
