Financial Aid

Aid offers to new fall 2021 freshmen have been going out since March 19 and will continue to go out as students apply and complete their financial aid file.

Students who need help determining how to accept their aid should visit ewu.edu/acceptaid.

Students who need help completing verification steps, visit ewu.edu/verification.

Note: EWU doesn’t select students for verification, and like you, we wish the process were simpler for students.

If students and families are unsure or need more help, call for an appointment with one of our financial aid advisors at 509.359.2314.


Completing Applications

We’re still accepting applications: ewu.edu/apply.

If students are missing documents such as unofficial high school transcripts or an application waiver, they can be sent by the student to the student uploader.

Transfer students should send official transcripts as soon as possible.

Once we receive all materials, we can make an admission decision within 3 days.

Please have your student ID ready to make your purchase. You will enter the same line as you do for lunch. We will be open for only the first 10 minutes of lunch.
