Submit Your FAFSA Early!
Submitting a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the required first step in receiving financial aid at any institution. Financial Aid is time sensitive, so it is best to apply between January 1st and March 1st prior to your term of entry!

NOTE: WesternU’s school code is 024827, and you can provide tax estimates on the FAFSA.

Student Loan Information


We encourage you to research scholarships to reduce your need for student loans.

Service Obligation Scholarships

When you commit to serve with one of these organizations upon graduation, they will either pay for your education as you go, or help you repay your loans after completing your education.

If you reside in the Western United States, and your home state does not offer the health professions degree you wish to attain, you may qualify for a WICHE scholarship!
