| ADMISSIONS | Paying for College | 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.
For the most part, financial aid will be awarded to you on the basis of need in the form of grants, loans, and work-study. In addition to need-based aid, there are a variety of non-need-based loans and academic scholarships available. Many students receive a combination of these different forms of assistance. Currently, 68% of WSU students receive some form of aid with an average annual award of $10,331.If any financial difficulties arise unexpectedly, be sure to contact the Financial Aid Office to make an appointment with your counselor.
