Financial Aid Handbook & Policies

Summer Information

Summer aid eligibility is determined using registered hours and remaining aid eligibility*. If you would like an estimate of aid eligibility prior to enrolling in summer courses you may still fill out a Summer Financial Aid Application.

  • File both the preceeding and following year FAFSAs at
  • Watch for requests for verification documents if you are selected for verification for either year. Notifications about your application and eligibility will be sent to your WIU email account.
  • A minimum of three weeks should be expected for processing the application by the Financial Aid Office.

*Students graduating in Summer or Fall who have a completed following year FAFSA on file may be able to “borrow” financial aid eligibility from the following academic year. This will be noted on your award notification, if applicable.
