Financial Aid


In order to be considered for Financial Aid you must complete:

  1. A Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for the 2016-2017 school year must be on file with Washington State University.
  2. Admission as a regular degree-seeking student.
  3. Register for at least 6 credits (undergraduate students); or at least 3 credits (graduate students).

NOTE: Continuing students must be making satisfactory academic progress (SAP) toward completion of a degree. For the complete SAP policy, please refer to the Financial Aid web site.


Federal financial aid for summer typically consists of grants and loans that you may have qualified for during the academic year but did not accept or use.

Note: Some students may experience a delay in delivery of summer financial aid until their spring semester grades are posted to their transcripts and verified for satisfactory progress.
