Welcome to Western!
We encourage all students to submit a financial aid application (FAFSA) to determine eligibility. For state residents ineligible to submit the FAFSA, they may submit the WASFA.
Please review the details that will be helpful in understanding your financial aid offer.
As you review your financial aid offer, please contact us if you have any questions!

The priority filing deadline (used for some limited types of need based aid) has been extended to April 1, 2024 for the 2024-2025 FAFSA and WASFA from the standard January 31st deadline.
2024-2025 Financial Aid Estimation Resources
Due to the late opening of the 2024-2025 FAFSA and delay in creating estimate aid offers for incoming fall students, we have put together some 2024-2025 Financial Aid Estimation Resources should you wish to estimate certain types of federal or state financial aid based on your processed FAFSA data.
