Financial aid includes scholarship, grants, work study, and loans. Students from all income levels are eligible for at least a low-interest loan.
Complete your FAFSA
You must complete the Free Application for the Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to apply for federal grants, work study, and student/parents loans. File online at the federal government's FAFSA site. Wright State's Federal School Code is 003078. If you have not done so already, you are encouraged to file your FAFSA now!
The priority deadline to submit your FAFSA is March 1, however a student can apply for federal student aid at any time during the year. It is best to allow a couple of months for processing. Students who submit the FAFSA after the March 1 priority deadline date will not be considered for federal campus-based programs at Wright State University.
