How to Apply for Funding and Assistance
WAU encourages applicants to the University to apply for financial aid. In order to be considered, you must submit the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) at www.fafsa.ed.gov. Filing this form in a timely manner will enable us to consider you for all types of need-based aid. WAU’s Student Financial Services Office reviews the family financial circumstances of each admitted student and determines your financial need based on information supplied by the FAFSA.
If you have not yet filed your current year taxes (2012), you can estimate your income on the FAFSA by using year-to-date pay stubs and bank statements and comparing data with last year’s federal taxes. Please be as accurate as possible; variances with finalized information can result in an adjusted award.
