Financial Aid Information
Most students, as long as they are enrolled at least half-time (6 credits for undergraduate and 4.5 for graduate) are eligible for financial aid (grants or loans). 

To determine what financial aid you are eligible for, you must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at

If you have completed the FAFSA and have been awarded financial aid, you can access your financial aid information by logging in to WINS at and selecting the Financial Aid tile from Student Home.  A few notes:

  • When looking at your financial aid, ensure the correct aid year is selected in the upper left-hand corner.
  • By default the financial aid that is listed will be for the full academic year. Simply divide the amount by two to determine how much you will receive per term or change the display from Summary to a single term.
We have developed this worksheet to help you calculate your financial need.  

If your financial aid does not cover all of your costs, there are additional options to explore.  For a description of some of these options, please visit
