WSU Priority Dates and Deadlines

Due to the most recent announcement by the U.S. Department of Education (ED) on further delays for institutions to begin receiving applicant data, WSU has extended our 2024-2025 priority dates and deadlines. Our goal is to provide flexibility to students and families with the assurance that we stand ready to assist with navigating unforeseen delays. Below are the updated priority dates and deadlines:

  • December: FAFSA Opens
  • Early January: WASFA Opens
  • May 1st: WSU General Scholarship Deadline *
  • May 1st: FAFSA/WASFA priority date for new & current WSU students
  • July 31st: Additional Documentation priority date for new & current WSU students
* 2024-2025 General Scholarship Application closes 11:59pm PT.  

Reminder: There are outside scholarships offered year-round that can also help you pay for your time at WSU; 500+ outside scholarships can be found using our scholarship search engine.

We have created a FAFSA/WASFA CHANGES page to help students and families navigate the upcoming 24-25 changes. Both applications are open. PLEASE NOTE: WSU DOES NOT HAVE 24-25 FAFSA INFORMATION. WE WILL UPDATE WHEN WE HAVE THE APPLICATION DATA.
