Financial Aid Services Center
The WASFA (Washington Application for State Financial Aid) allows students who are ineligible for federal financial aid due to immigration status to apply for state financial aid. The WASFA is available at: readysetgrad.wa.gov/wasfa.
For additional information and resources, visit the WWU Scholarship Center website. Our Scholarship Center staff stand ready to help and support undocumented students in the WASFA application process. The Scholarship Center staff also coordinates financial aid funding available for WASFA filers.
Tips for Completing the WASFA
Mark Your Calendar for These Two Important Financial Aid Dates
For the upcoming 2020-2021 academic year, the earliest you can complete the WASFA is October 1, 2019. Complete the 2020-2021 WASFA as soon as you can on or after October 1, 2019 and take note of Western’s WASFA priority filing deadline of January 31, 2020. Meeting the January 31 priority filing deadline best ensures your eligibility for some types of financial aid that may not be available to those who file a WASFA after the deadline.
