Receiving Financial Aid
You’ve submitted your FAFSA and WSU Finaid and Scholarship application. The Financial Aid and Scholarship Office will review your information.
The Review Process
What happens after we receive your FAFSA:
- Each FAFSA is reviewed in the order it is received.
- Your file review will not take place until you have entered your expected graduation date, expected enrollment, and outside resource information on WSU's Finaid and Scholarship Application.
- As part of the review, our office may require additional information, as requested through your Wildcat Mail. This information may include, but is not limited to, verification documents, official academic transcripts, citizenship documentation, and emancipation documentation.
- Once you have submitted all required documents and our office has processed your information, your financial aid award will be packaged, and you will receive an award letter through your Wildcat Mail.
During peak times, files can take up to 8 weeks or more to review. We recommend you plan accordingly and apply by April 1st, the priority deadline.
How to accept your award offer
To view and accept your financial aid and/or scholarship:
- Go to the Award Information app in eWeber.
- Log in with your username and password.
- Click “Accept/Review Award Offer by Aid Year” and select the appropriate year.
- Click on the “Accept Award Offer” tab.
In the drop-down box, accept or decline your award. Click “Submit.”
How and when you receive your aid (disbursement) varies depending on the type of aid.
**Your financial aid award is based off of your expected enrollment, as self-reported on the WSU Finaid and Scholarship Application. This means your award is subject to change if your enrollment level changes.
If you accept a Federal Student Loan, you must:
- Sign and submit your master promissory note (MPN*).
- Complete the Stafford Loan Entrance Orientation at StudentLoans.gov
*A Master Promissory Note (MPN) is a legal contract that states you, the borrower, will repay the loan. Signing is required once during the time that you are a student borrower at Weber. In the eWeber Award Information app, access your “Overall Financial Aid Status” to see if you need to complete this step.
Understanding Your Offer
Your award offer will show you the maximum federal student loan amount you may be eligible for. However, the actual amount you receive depends on your year in school and past loan amounts.
