The WSU Office of Financial Aid will be hosting several fun and educational events to help assist you in your search for and understanding of financial aid assistance during our fifth annual Financial Aid Awareness Week, February 17-23, 2013.  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.

In order to be eligible to receive the Grand Prize drawing the Office of Financial Aid must be able to confirm your 2013-2014 FAFSA application is completed prior to March 1st.
