Step 2

After you’ve completed the FAFSA and the Financial Aid Office has received your information, you may be contacted with instructions on what forms and documents will be needed to complete and confirm your financial aid. All of these forms can be downloaded from Forms and Resources.

Completed forms can be mailed, faxed or emailed to the Financial Aid Office. If you have any questions or are having difficulty, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Step 3

After all forms and documents are turned in and you are officially accepted to WJU (for new students), you will receive a financial aid offer letter which lists the financial aid that you are eligible for. Review this letter carefully and return it to the Financial Aid Office so that we can update your student account accordingly.

If you were eligible for Federal Stafford loans and wish to borrow them, be sure to complete a Master Promissory Note and Entrance Counseling with the Department of Education.
