Applying for Aid
DACA students and 1079 students who are interested in applying for state financial aid for 2020-2021 should complete the following:
- Apply for admission to EWU by February 1 (new freshmen and transfers).
- File a WASFA listing EWU as a school choice by February 1.
- Submit a residency affidavit form (1079 form) or proof of DACA status (I-797) to the EWU Records and Registration Office by February 1.
- Have a family income at or below the EWU eligibility cutoff amount.
Students who do not meet the above deadlines will still be considered for aid, but awards are made on a funds-available basis and late applicants may not receive all the aid for which they might otherwise qualify.
In some cases, we may ask you to provide copies of your and/or your parents’ IRS tax return transcripts and verification of household size and untaxed income. Be sure to check your EWU email account periodically for messages related to those items.
Please contact the Financial Aid Office at 509.359.2314 if you have specific questions about financial aid eligibility and the WASFA application process. Undocumented and DACA students may be eligible for some EWU scholarships (depending on donor criteria), but are not eligible for institutional financial aid or any programs funded with tuition waivers, including WUE, tuition-waiver funded scholarships, or graduate assistantships.
