Financial Aid

Students who need assistance for summer quarter may apply for limited financial aid. Some students may be eligible for a Federal Pell Grant or loans, such as Federal Direct Loans.

Students who wish to be considered for federal grants and loans will want to submit their 2022-2023 FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) online at prior to June 30, 2023. The federal government will not grant exceptions to this deadline. A student cannot be considered for the Federal Pell Grant or the Federal Direct Loan if this deadline is missed. All financial forms and applications can be found at

A completed Financial Aid file contains:

  1. Correct ISIR (institutional Student Information Record). The federal processor generates the ISIR after a FAFSA is submitted. Students who list Walla Walla University (code 003799) on their FAFSA will have their ISIR electronically sent to Walla Walla University by the federal processor. Students who did not list Walla Walla University on their FAFSA will need to add WWU's code (003799) to their FAFSA.
  2. Walla Walla University Financial Aid Application (either undergraduate or the graduate depending on acceptance into a program). This application may be submitted online at
  3. Proof of school completion (final transcript or letter of verification) for undergraduate; proof of Bachelor completion (final transcript) for graduate.
  4. Additional documentation, if needed, for verification purposes.

Only financial aid that has been awarded by registration time may be deducted from the estimated costs. Students eligible for federal financial aid must be registered for classes by June 30. Students who register or add classes after that date cannot receive federal financial aid for those classes.

Students who are on a waiting list or waiting for a letter of acceptance should complete the financial aid application. Aid is not awarded until students receive their acceptance to Walla Walla University. However, if a student is accepted and moves off the waiting list at the last moment, it is to the student’s advantage to have the financial aid application already completed.
