Step 1 of 3 – Fill out FAFSA

First, you’ll need to fill out the FAFSA in order to qualify for student loans and determine your need for aid. You can complete this online at FAFSA.gov. Be sure to list WJU on your school list so we’re able to see your FAFSA. After you’ve completed the FAFSA and the Financial Aid Office has received your information, you may be contacted with instructions on what forms and documents will be needed to complete and confirm your financial aid.

Step 2 of 3 – Renewing Your Aid

Most types of financial aid are renewable yearly, but many require renewed applications or documentation. It is always recommended that you complete a FAFSA as early as possible each year. In order to continue to qualify for loans, you must renew your FAFSA every year. Make sure to keep an eye on your student portal document tracking page so that you never miss a deadline.

Step 3 of 3 – Keeping Your Aid

Each scholarship has its own requirements that you must be aware of and complete in order to maintain eligibility. In addition to these requirements, all students must maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP). Requirements of undergraduate SAP include that you achieve a 2.00 GPA and complete at least 66.67% of your courses.
