Renew your Financial Aid



Complete the FAFSA

The FAFSA application allows us to review your eligibility for federal and state financial aid. Please remember to add UWest’s Federal School Code 036963 to your FAFSA before submission.

Financial aid is awarded on an academic-year basis and it is not automatically renewable. Therefore, you must complete the FAFSA application for each year of attendance. The FAFSA cycle opens October 1 every year.



Complete the UWest Application for Financial Aid and Scholarships

The UWest Application for Financial Aid and Scholarships allows us to establish a financial aid and scholarship profile for you at UWest. Please remember to submit the application to the UWest Financial Aid Office by April 1.
