    You will not be able to create a Financial Aid Verify account until Weber State University has received your FAFSA. Please allow 5 to 10 business days from the day you submit your FAFSA for us to receive it.

    TIP: If you list a text message phone number when creating your account, our office will text you with important updates to your file.

    Our office reserves the right to correct your FAFSA based on the information we receive.

You will have to go in every year to apply for the scholarships you want to apply for and make sure your information is up-to-date to ensure you see all of the scholarships you are eligible for. You do not need to reenter your information each year, just make sure it is up-to-date.

    Scholarship applications are considered on a first-come, first-served basis. The earlier you apply, the better.

    TIP: If you are applying for an activity scholarship, contact the department awarding the scholarship for any additional deadlines or requirements.
