U.S. Financial Aid
U.S. citizens and permanent residents are eligible to apply for federal financial aid programs, which include federal student loans. We encourage candidates to apply for financial aid as early as possible.
To be eligible for federal financial aid, students must be registered in a minimum of six units per semester. Students who choose to take a less-accelerated path toward completion of the degree should be aware that this will impact federal financial aid eligibility.
How to Apply for Financial Aid
If you plan to apply for financial aid to help fund your online studies at Washington University in St. Louis, you will need to complete the following steps.
Sign your FAFSA application electronically using your Federal Student Aid (FSA) ID. The U.S. Department of Education recently replaced the federal PIN with a new login system. You will be asked to create a new FSA ID when logging in.
Evaluate your need for additional funding through sources such as a Federal Direct Graduate PLUS Loan from the Department of Education or alternative loans from various private lenders.
Prior to borrowing through the Federal Direct Graduate PLUS Loan Program, or any additional private/alternative loan, you may need to review credit reports for potential issues. Contact any of the following credit bureaus for information: Experian, Equifax, or TransUnion.
Upon admission to a Washington University in St. Louis program and successful completion of both the federal requirements and the WashULaw Supplemental Form, you will receive an award letter via email from a Washington University Financial Aid Representative.
