Financial Aid

Financial Aid Budgets

The total amount of financial aid (grants, scholarships, loans, etc.) that a student may receive is limited to that student’s estimated cost of attending WIU. This cost of attendance is determined using a budget established by the Financial Aid Office.

Your financial aid budget includes expected University expenses, but also includes additional expenses a student is likely to incur while attending school, such as books, laundry, transportation, etc.
