    Financial Aid for the 2017-18 Academic Year

    U.S. citizens or eligible non-citizens who wish to apply for financial aid for the 2017-18 academic year can file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at any time during the 2017-18 academic year.  Students who are unable to file the FAFSA due to immigration status can file the Washington Application for Student Financial Aid (WASFA). 

    The estimated Cost of Attendance for 2017-2018 is available for your reference.  These are the standard "base" amounts used to determine your financial aid eligibility.  Your final cost may vary based on action by the Washington State Legislature and/or the EWU Board of Trustees.  Additional details are available on the Cost of Attendance web page.

    Financial Aid for the 2018-19 Academic Year

    The FAFSA, WASFA, and EWU Scholarship applications for the 2018-19 academic year will be available starting October 1, 2017.  All prospective students should apply for admissions and financial aid as soon after October 1st as possible.  Students who complete their admissions and financial aid applications by February 1, 2018 will receive priority consideration for EWU financial aid.  FAFSA's received after February 1st are still considered, but awards are made on a funds-available basis and late applicants may not receive all the aid for which they might otherwise qualify.  The 2018-19 FAFSA and WASFA are used to determine financial aid eligibility through Summer, 2019.  The EWU Cost of Attendance for 2018-19 will be determined in February of 2018.  

    Net Price Calculator (Freshmen)

    The EWU Net Price Calculator (Freshmen) provides estimated net price information (estimated cost of attendance minus estimated grant and scholarship aid) to prospective freshmen based on what similar students paid in a previous year. 

    Net Price Calculator (Transfers)

    The EWU Net Price Calculator (Transfers) provides estimated net price information (estimated cost of attendance minus estimated grant and scholarship aid) to prospective transfer students based on what similar students paid in a previous year.
