Applying for Financial Aid

To apply for any federal or state financial aid at Wright State University, you must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Loans, grants, and Federal Work-Study are considered state or federal aid. To be considered for these types of aid, students must complete the FAFSA. The FAFSA form is available online or you can pick up a paper copy from your guidance counselor, a public library, or college/university financial aid office after January 1. (Filing the FAFSA online is the quickest and most convenient method.)


The FAFSA can be filed after January 1 by paper application or online at www.fafsa.ed.gov, which is the preferred method for faster processing. Before completing the FAFSA online, you and your parent(s) (for dependent students), must request a PIN online at www.pin.ed.gov. The PIN will serve as the electronic signature for FAFSA filers.

In order to complete the FAFSA, you will need student and parent (or spouse, if you are married) 1040s and W-2s. Many of the questions on the FAFSA will come directly from these forms. However, you should not send copies of these forms to the federal processor.

On the FAFSA, you will also be required to list the colleges and universities that you want to receive your FAFSA results. Wright State's Title IV code for the FAFSA is 003078.

The priority deadline to submit the FAFSA at Wright State is March 1, 2014.


Loans are a type of financial aid that must be repaid with interest. Student loans (Stafford, Perkins) are taken out in the student's name. Parent loans (PLUS) are taken out in the parent's name. Private loans, also called Alternative Loans, are usually taken out in the student's name but should have a credit-worthy co-signer. Contact Raider Connect at (937) 775-4000 or e-mail raiderconnect@wright.edu if you have questions about loans.


Grants are a form of financial aid that is based on need. (Need is determined by filing the FAFSA.) Grants do not need to be paid back. The Office of Financial Aid has information on what grants are available.

Federal Work-Study Program

The Federal Work Study Program enables you to work part time to earn money for school-related expenses. The amount of Work-Study money is based on need. (Need is determined by filing the FAFSA.) Contact Raider Connect at (937) 775-4000 or e-mail raiderconnect@wright.edu if you have questions about Federal Work-Study.
