Student Financial Aid

Financing Your Education

WAU is committed to offering our students a quality education at an affordable price.

Financial aid is a crucial component of achieving your goal of a college education. We offer a variety of financial aid packages combining merit and need-based aid with state, federal, and institutional assistance. 

Student Financial Aid is here to support you and your family as you explore your financial aid options. We suggest reviewing our Strategies for Financing Your Education and Managing Your Contribution sections for additional assistance.
