Thank you for visiting the Department of Student Financial Assistance’s website. As stated in our mission statement below, our staff is dedicated to helping students and parents secure resources to help pay for a college education at WKU. We strive to provide the highest level of customer service possible and staff in the department are held to the highest ethical standards.
The financial aid process can sometimes seem like a long and complicated process and one of our objectives with this website is to make the application and award process as easy as possible to understand.
Financial assistance at WKU is typically in the form of grants, loans, scholarships, tuition waivers, veteran benefits or student employment. Almost all of our students receive some type of assistance, but every situation and aid package is different. It is important to respond to any requests for additional information as quickly as possible and to ask questions when necessary.
Please visit our site regularly and follow us on social media for new or updated information and important deadlines. This site should become a valuable tool for you throughout the financial aid process.
The mission of the Department of Student Financial Assistance at WKU is to assist qualified students, regardless of financial background, in securing resources to finance their college education. In support we are committed to being responsive to customer’s needs; maintaining the integrity of programs administered by our department; being accountable to the University, State, Federal, and third party entities; supporting University recruitment and retention strategies; and providing a family work environment that facilitates both personal and departmental growth.
