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 deadline for current students is February 15.
- Complete your WSU scholarship application so you can tap into WSU’s scholarship funds. The last date to apply for scholarships for the upcoming academic year is January 31.
- Contact your program’s academic adviser to help set up a consortium agreement that allows your WSU financial aid to be applied to courses on the Everett campus.

Taking these steps will put you into consideration for need-based aid, such as grants, student loans, work-study and certain scholarships. You’ll also be considered for academic scholarships.
A few scholarships require an additional application or supplemental materials, so be sure to check our scholarship pages for full information.
Your financial aid to-do list
After you’ve been admitted to WSU and received an offer of financial aid or a scholarship, the University’s student information system (aka myWSU) will have a customized list of everything you need to do to accept your award and get started at WSU.
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.
