Applying for aid

University of Washington students use the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to apply for financial aid. The FAFSA should be received at the federal processor by February 28 for priority consideration for our aid programs. We recommend you transmit your application (or mail the form) no later than February 15.

Although the FAFSA requests "actual" tax information, estimates are acceptable and may be used to meet the February 28 priority deadline.
