Welcome to the Office of Student Financial Aid

We believe students from all economic backgrounds should have the opportunity to attend the University of Washington Tacoma. Finances should not be a barrier to getting a world-class education. Each year the University of Washington Tacoma awards financial aid to more than 70% of our students. We have a wide array of federal, state and institutional financial aid programs to help students at all economic levels pay for their education.

To be considered for any type of financial aid, including scholarships, you must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online. The FAFSA can be completed at any time, but for priority consideration, you should make sure you submit it by January 15th. If you complete the FAFSA after this date, we will still try to meet your financial needs, but first priority goes to those who complete it by January 15th.
