FAFSA Changes

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is now live. As you may have heard, there were many changes to the FAFSA this year, and some students are encountering technical difficulties. Read about the FAFSA Simplification Act.

The changes are a new initiative by the Federal Government, and delays are out of WPU’s control. When you file your 2024/2025 FAFSA, please add our school code, 002953. 

Should there be delays in your ability to submit, this will NOT negatively impact your financial aid awards from WPU nor any prior merit awards you have already received.

When you have completed your 2024/25 FAFSA successfully, you will receive an email confirmation from the U.S. Department of Education. 

At this time, we do not have an exact date as to when WPU will receive your FAFSA information from the Federal Government. Please check your WPU email for updates after you file and receive the receipt of the FAFSA email from the Federal Government. Your WPU email account is where we will send all financial aid award information, and we will notify you when your award is available.
