Financial Aid is a great opportunity to help you pay your student bill! We encourage all students to apply for Financial Aid through the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
Financial aid awards are made after the FAFSA has been received by WSSU and reviewed for accuracy and completeness. The award process may take between four to six weeks to complete based on your specific situation. The WSSU FAFSA code is 002986.
You may be selected for verification, a process that confirms the accuracy of the information you provided on the FAFSA. Selection for verification is determined by the U.S. Department of Education. Please review the verification information included in the Resource section of the Financial Aid website.
Take advantage of the WSSU FATV videos - great resource for all of your questions!
