Strategies for Financing Your Education

Strategies for Financing Your Education

With the rising costs of tuition, you and your family may have questions about the affordability of a WAU education. We offer the following advice:

  1. Plan early
  2. Research to find out what federal, university, state, private, activity and academic based loans, scholarships, grants, and other funding are available
  3. Consider taking advantage of our tuition payment plan
  4. Never self-select out of financial aid; apply even if you don’t think you have the need
  5. Follow deadlines in order to avail yourself of all opportunities and options
  6. Have family conversations about affordability and how much of a financial commitment your family is willing to assume.
  7. Talk to a WAU Student Financial Services financial aid counselor for help in understanding your options
