Current Student Financial Aid Process

To apply for federal and state need-based financial assistance, you must:

  1. Complete the FAFSA (cost to complete = Free)
  2. Complete the Verification Process

Eligibility for need-based financial aid is contingent upon continuing to demonstrate financial need, Satisfactory Academic Progress, and campus citizenship as determined by the Dean of Students. Additionally, students cannot be in default or owe a refund on any federal aid.

Students must complete the Financial Aid Process each year in order to be considered for federal and state need-based financial assistance and institutional assistance.

Student Support Funds

Current students who are faced with unexpected expenses that may affect their ability to succeed at Wabash may apply to the Student Support Funds for financial relief.  These funds are not available for student account charges or other educational expenses that should otherwise be expected. Each application is carefully reviewed to ensure all other financial aid resources are maximized first.
