Financial aid is a crucial component of achieving your goal of a college education. The Office of Student Financial Services at Washington Adventist University is here to help you through the process of financing your education.

We believe that we owe our students a quality education at an affordable price. We offer a variety of financial aid packages that combine merit- and need-based aid with state and federal assistance. Roughly ninety-five percent of WAU students receive some sort of financial aid. We are here to support you and your family as you explore your financial aid options.

We suggest that you review the information about the various types of aid available and then follow the instructions to apply for financial aid.
