Financial Aid and Estimated Cost of Attendance
ESTIMATED COST OF ATTENDANCE
Estimated cost of attendance can be found on WSU’s Student Financial Services website, using the “Cost of Attendance” pull-down on the left, then selecting “Tuition & Expenses”. Once on the page, select “Spokane” for the Campus and “medical” for the Career Path.
In order to apply for financial aid at Washington State University, it is imperative you submit the FAFSA at fafsa.ed.gov. New financial aid filing deadlines are in place— so plan ahead to be eligible for the most aid possible. Please see financialaid.wsu.edu for the details. Washington State University’s FAFSA school code is 003800.
To be considered for the Health Professions Loan (HPL), you must provide parental data on the FAFSA, regardless of your independent status.
