Financial Aid

The Office of Financial Aid makes every effort to help students who would be unable to attend school without receiving some form of financial aid. No student interested in attending Wright State University should fail to apply because of financial limitations. If necessary, students should meet with a financial aid staff member to discuss any questions or concerns they may have regarding their financial aid package. The Office of Financial Aid is located on campus at E136 Student Union, or by phone at (937) 775-5721, or toll-free at 1-877-978-3243, or by e-mail at financialaid@wright.edu. Office hours are 8:00-5:00 Monday through Friday, except holidays. Please contact the office beforehand to arrange an appointment if you would need to meet with a financial aid staff member.

To determine summer and/or academic year financial aid eligibility for federal and state-based aid, the Office of Financial Aid requires completion of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for the academic year that you plan to attend. The financial aid programs available through FAFSA are the Federal Pell grant, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG), Federal Academic Competitiveness Grant, Federal SMART Grant, Federal Perkins or Nursing Student Loan, Federal Work-Study, Federal Subsidized and/or Unsubsidized Stafford Student Loans, Federal Parent Loan for Undergraduate Students (PLUS), Ohio College Opportunity Grant, and the Ohio Instructional Grant (OIG) or Ohio Part-Time Student Instructional Grant. The application deadlines and requirements for these programs vary, so it is essential that individuals contact the Office of Financial Aid or visit the Web site at http://www.wright.edu/finaid/ for specific dates and additional details.

The preferred method of filing the FAFSA is online. The Web site for online FAFSA filing is http://www.FAFSA.ed.gov. Students and parents (for dependent students) must request a FAFSA PIN before filing the FAFSA online. The FAFSA PIN will serve as the online signature for the student filer and parent (if required). The FAFSA PIN request is made online at http://www.pin.ed.gov. Filing the FAFSA online and including a valid e-mail address, Wright State school code, and completing the FAFSA with the FAFSA PIN(s) will aid in faster processing.

Once the FAFSA data are processed and received by the Office of Financial Aid, admitted students will be contacted through their Wright State e-mail address to complete needed information to award financial aid on their Wings Express account. Students will then receive a followup e-mail to inform them when their financial aid award is available for review on their Wings Express account.

Students should also check their Wings Express account for any requirements that may be needed to finalize their financial aid award. Financial aid awards are based on the student's budget, registered hours for the quarter, and financial need as determined by the FAFSA (if filed).
