Financial Aid

Our office is committed to helping you finance your education. Students may be eligible for merit-based scholarships, need-based grants, student loans and a variety of other resources depending on their background and demonstrated need. Our commitment to your education is as simple as that.

When Should I Apply for Financial Aid?

The first step toward receiving merit-based scholarships is to apply for admission to Virginia Wesleyan University.

The FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) must be completed after October 1st of each academic year in order to be considered for need-based institutional, state and federal grants, federal student loans, the Federal Work-Study Program, and the federal Parent PLUS Loan. The application for the FAFSA can be found at Be sure to include our school code: 003767. Once we receive a copy of your FAFSA and you have been admitted by the Enrollment Office, we will set up an award package for you.
