Help your student prepare for their WSU adventure, there are several tasks they need to complete by January 31.

  1. January 31 is also the deadline for the WSU General Scholarship Application. This single application offers students the opportunity to apply for over 700 different scholarships at WSU. This application requires thoughtful responses, so advise your students to start now!
  2. While the 2019–2020 FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) can be completed any time throughout the year for aid consideration, WSU’s priority submission date is January 31. Meeting this priority date increases students’ likelihood of being awarded grants and work-study before funding is used up. The FAFSA can be completed online for free.
  3. The 2019–2020 WASFA (Washington Application for State Financial Aid) is available for HB-1079 and qualifying DACA students only. Your student must complete this application by January 31 to have the potential to receive grants from the state of Washington to help pay for college. If your student is a “Dreamer” please have him/her complete the WASFA by the deadline. It is a great opportunity for students who are unable to file the FAFSA to be considered for state financial aid. For more information and to access the application, go to
