Scholarship and Financial Aid and Deadlines/Priority Dates

Scholarship Application Deadlines

When you're admitted to Weber State University you're automatically considered for academic scholarships based on the information you provided during the application process. But you need to apply for needs-based and activity-based scholarships separately. 

Scholarship application opens annually on September 1st in the student portal.  Scholarships will be very competitive based on submission date and WSU cum GPA.  Since there are more students applying for scholarships than there are available funds, the earlier you apply the more competitive you will be in receiving a scholarship.

It's important that you update your information in the student portal by the below 2015-2016 priority dates to be considered for academic scholarships. Also, be sure to apply for all other scholarships before the following dates.

New Freshmen & Re-Admitted Students Jan 12, '15
