Financial Aid

File your FAFSA starting in October every year.
The WSU school code for all campuses is 003800.

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 steps:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.

Additional assistance is available! Contact Brandon Buckingham at or (425) 405-1606.


Scholarships can be an important part of paying for your college degree.
The most important thing you can do is submit the General Scholarship
Application every year by January 31.
