Washington State University awards millions of dollars in financial aid and scholarships to students every year based on financial need, academic merit, or a combination of the two.
To get all the financial help WSU can provide, take these four steps:
- Apply to WSU. The priority application deadline for fall semester entry at WSU Everett is January 31, however WSU will continue to accept applications after this date.
- File the WASFA and FAFSA to qualify for aid based on your financial need. The deadline for new students is January 31 and the additional documentation deadline for current students is February 15. See dates and deadlines for more information.

All veterans and dependents receiving VA Educational Assistance must complete the Enrollment Certification Request prior to the start each Fall Semester or prior to the start of summer session. To access the form go to WSU Office of Veterans Affairs. The Enrollment Certification Request informs the WSU VA Office that you wish to use your GI Bill benefits for the school year. Failure to submit this form will delay receipt of your monthly GI Bill payments.
