The Office of Financial Aid will be sponsoring various events throughout the week of February 16th to promote financial aid awareness here on our campus and in our community.
During these uncertain economic times we want to emphasize the importance of applying for federal financial aid early by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by WSU’s priority date of March 1st and to make students aware of the financial aid opportunities that they may have.
