Welcome to Wayne State University. You do not need to wait to register for classes. If you have not received an award and are unsure if you will have enough funding, please feel free to speak with a financial aid officer.
Steps to Receiving Aid
1. File the FAFSA
File the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online at www.fafsa.gov.
If you have already filed the FAFSA for the academic year, add our school code so we can receive your information.
- Wayne State University school code: 002329
If you have already received aid for the current year, we will review your financial aid history to determine your current eligibility.
2. Review WSU Pipeline under the Financial Aid tab
Review your financial aid awards and any outstanding requirements online via WSU Pipeline.
Your Pipeline AccessID and temporary password are mailed to you from the Office of Computing & Information Technology (C&IT).
3. Check your WSU email
We will send email to your WSU email account to update you on your financial aid status. All information is available on Pipeline.
If you borrowed Pell grants or student loans at another school and transfer to WSU mid-year, we may be required to revise your awards. If we are required to remove funds, this may create a balance owed to WSU. Watch for a revised award email notice.
Speak with a Financial Aid Officer if you have questions about your eligibility.
4. Complete all requirements
In addition, some aid programs have additional requirements. For instance, if you are borrowing federal loans at WSU, you will need to complete entrance loan counseling and sign master promissory notes.
