Grants and waivers are awarded to undergraduate students based on a determination of financial need.
- Grants do not need to be repaid. Funds can come from WSU, the State of Washington, or the federal government.
- Waivers are discounts applied directly to your tuition. Your total amount of waivers and tuition-specific aid cannot exceed the amount you have been charged for tuition.
Upon being admitted to WSU and successfully completing your FAFSA (or the WASFA, for undocumented students), you will automatically be considered for the grants and waivers administered by the University’s Office of Student Financial Services.
If you’re a Post Baccalaureate student, you will not qualify for need based grants, waivers, or work-study. However, you do have aid options available to you.
