Welcome to Financial Aid

About Financial Aid

As a student, you have many options to finance your education, including grants, loans, and scholarships that come from federal, state, or privately funded sources.

Students pursuing an undergraduate, graduate, or certificate program are encouraged to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Remember to list Walsh College on the top line in Step 6 of the FAFSA. Our Federal School Code is 004071.

For purposes of awarding financial aid, Walsh College defines its academic year as three terms: fall, winter, and spring. Need-based federal and state grant aid is awarded for those three terms and summer term grant eligibility is determined at the beginning of the summer term. Federal loans are awarded for the fall, winter.
