Top Reasons to Apply for Financial Aid

  • The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is required for many scholarship applications, whether or not you qualify for need-based aid.
  • FAFSA is required to qualify for certain types of jobs on campus.
  • Even if you don't qualify for grants, you may still be eligible for loans or other aid.
  • No income cut-off for certain types of aid, such as loans and some scholarships. How much money your family makes is only one factor in determining your eligibility.
  • The Washington Application for State Financial Aid (WAFSA) is for students who are ineligible to apply using the FAFSA due to immigration status.
