Financial Aid Packaging

Once your financial aid requirements have been completed, your financial aid award will be packaged. Your award will depend upon your eligibility, cost of attendance, outside resources, other institutional aid and your expected enrollment. 

Awards are packaged in the following order: Pell Grant, FSEOG, third-party sponsors (vocational rehabilitation, AmeriCorps, Department of Workforce Services, etc.), institutional awards (WSU scholarships/waivers), Federal Work Study, subsidized loans, unsubsidized loans and Perkins loans. 

Dependent students and their parents wishing to apply for a PLUS Loan (Federal Parents Loan for Undergraduate Students) will need to submit the PLUS Loan Request. This award is not automatically included in the packaging process. 

If your award offer does not include an award you were expecting, you may not be eligible for that award (ex: Pell Grant), or funds may have run out (ex: Federal Work Study). If you have any questions about your award, please contact the Financial Aid and Scholarship Office.
