Step 1 of 3 – FAFSA

First, you will need to fill out the FAFSA in order to determine your need for financial aid. Complete a FAFSA before March 2nd in order to ensure that you are evaluated for all forms of aid. You can complete this online at Be sure to list WJU on your school list so that we are able to see your FAFSA. WJU’s school code is 001281. Complete the FAFSA (online)

Step 2 of 3 – Apply to WJU!

Much of the information we need to award your financial aid is retrieved from the FAFSA and your WJU Application for Admission. Once you have been accepted to WJU, you may be contacted with instructions on what forms and documents will be needed to complete and confirm your financial aid. If you would like to take a look at a full catalog of the aid available for your program, visit the Financial Aid Page for your program in the MENU bar above.

Step 3 of 3 – Confirm Your Aid

After all forms and documents are turned in and you are officially accepted to WJU, new students will receive a financial aid offer letter which lists the financial aid that you are eligible for. Review this letter carefully and accept or decline your financial aid through the student portal so that we can give you your aid when school begins. If you are eligible for Federal Stafford loans and wish to borrow them, be sure to complete a Loan Agreement (MPN) and Entrance Counseling with the Department of Education.
