Financial Aid

The mission of Waynesburg University is to make higher education accessible and affordable for all students. Almost every student attending Waynesburg University receive some form of financial assistance. Therefore, all students and their families are encouraged to apply for financial aid each academic year.

The University processes financial aid from numerous federal, state, private and institutional sources. Financial aid may include scholarships, grants, student loans, parent loans and/or work-study programs. The University attempts to distribute aid equitably and students may be awarded from more than one type of aid program. A student’s financial aid award is normally a combination of gift aid (grants/scholarships) and self-help aid (loans/work-study). Most financial aid awards are based upon demonstrated financial need, which is determined by subtracting the Expected Family Contribution (EFC) from the estimated Cost of Attendance (COA). The EFC is calculated by the United States Department of Education based on the information that the student submits on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

To apply or reapply for financial aid each academic year, students must complete the FAFSA annually. The FAFSA must also be submitted in a timely manner to satisfy federal, state and institutional deadlines. In addition to this, to remain aid eligible, students must also meet the University’s policy on Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP).
