FINANCIAL AID PRIORITY DEADLINE: MARCH 15th                                        

Western Connecticut State University offers financial aid to help qualified students meet their educational expenses. The staff of Financial Aid and Student Employment is available to assist students in determining their eligibility for the various sources of aid available. While not every one will qualify for assistance, a student should never assume he/she is ineligible without first applying. A wide spectrum of variables affect the application process, therefore many possible options exist that may pertain to a students particular circumstances.

The evaluation of one's financial need is based on an analysis of several factors; such as, student and/or family income, family size, assets and liabilities, and the number of family members in school. In addition to the above, the school's total allocation of funds for an academic year is also a factor that determines the amount of aid a student can receive. Therefore, meeting the application deadline, along with assessing the students financial need, become an important factors in the financial aid process.

All financial aid recipients must apply annually to qualify for assistance, and must maintain satisfactory academic progress.
