United States Federal Financial Aid
To qualify for Unites States federal financial aid through the U.S. Department of Education, you must be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident of the U.S. The sources of aid are the Federal Direct Stafford Loan program and the Federal Direct Graduate PLUS Loan program. Consistent with the policy of most professional schools, we assume that you will bear the primary cost burden of your educational expenses. Therefore, long-term loans are the primary source of financial assistance.
To apply for loans, you must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and the Washington University Application for Financial Aid.
The Law School application for financial aid can be completed online:
To ensure that loans are disbursed on a timely basis, you should start the financial aid loan process no later than 60 days prior to the start of your first term.
To file your FAFSA online, go to www.fafsa.ed.gov. The FAFSA code for Washington University is 002520.
