How do I qualify for financial aid?

To see if you qualify for financial aid, submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by January 31. All colleges use the FAFSA to determine your eligibility for financial aid. Completing the FAFSA will help you get state and federal aid, and will help WSU consider you for additional aid — for instance, some scholarships consider financial need among their award criteria. Complete both the WSU scholarship application and the FAFSA to ensure that you’re considered for the maximum amount of financial assistance.

HB 1079 and DACA students should file the WASFA (Washington Application for State Financial Aid) instead.

How do I know when you’ve received my application?

When you submit your application, we’ll automatically send you a confirmation email acknowledging receipt of your application. If you applied by mail, you’ll receive a letter from the admissions office acknowledging receipt of your application, usually within a week to ten days.

Why does WSU require a final official transcript?

We use the final transcript to verify the last term you attended school, to confirm you’ve graduated (from high school), and ensure that we’ve given you all the credit that’s available to you. In addition, the transcript shows your GPA at that school and helps establish your academic eligibility to transfer to WSU.

What address should I send materials to?

Please send transcripts (and all other mailed application materials) to:
