Financial aid is a term that broadly covers the financial assistance you can use to pay for your education. The most common forms of aid include scholarships, grants, loans and Work-Study.


From first-year student scholarships to external scholarships, the Western Undergraduate Exchange Scholarship to college-based funding, there are numerous options available to students.

Student loans

Loans are a form of financial aid that must be repaid and can come from the federal government, the University and private lending sources.


Grants are sources of free money that typically do not have to be repaid and can come from the federal government, the University and other sources.

Federal Work-Study

Federal Work-Study is a program that allows students to earn money by working part-time on-campus and in other settings.
