Financial Aid and Scholarships

File Your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)

Completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the first step in applying for federal student aid. Most states and schools also use the results of your FAFSA to determine your eligibility for state and institutional scholarships and grant programs. You must file the FAFSA annually to apply for:

  • Federal grants
  • Federal student loans
  • Federal parent loans
  • Work (Federal Work-Study)

Some federal aid is limited in funding, so don't put off applying. Typically the FAFSA is available every year on October 1, prior to the start of the academic year. The 2023–24 FAFSA is currently available. However, the launch of the 2024–25 FAFSA has been delayed until sometime in December 2023. Please stay tuned for when the Department of Education announces when the 2024–25 FAFSA will be available.

Wright State's Priority Deadline for the 2024-2025 FAFSA is March 1, 2024. 

  • Wright State’s Title IV Code is 003078 
  • Wright State has a FAFSA priority deadline for campus-based aid programs
    • If you miss our priority deadline, you can still apply for federal student aid

2024-25 Free Application For Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)

The U.S. Department of Education (ED) is revising the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to make it easier for students and families to apply for financial aid. The FAFSA Simplification Act paves the way to a more streamlined financial aid application and represents a significant overhaul of the process used to award federal aid. Students applying for financial aid for the 2024–25 academic year will be able to take advantage of the revised FAFSA process.
