Quad Cities Campus

Getting Started


For many students and families, the cost of attending college can be too great to manage alone – for this reason, WIU Financial Aid Office is available to assist eligible students in obtaining financial aid so they may achieve their educational goals. There are many types of financial aid available, including grants, loans, scholarships, and student employment.

In general, financial aid can be used to pay tuition, fees, books, supplies, and certain living expenses. To be sure you receive the money you are eligible for, it is best to plan ahead. The financial aid process may take up to 8-12 weeks, so start your application process early (as soon as January 1)!
