Tuition & Financial Aid

After submitting your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), you will receive a confirmation email from the University of Washington’s Office of Student Financial Aid (OSFA). If you need to submit any additional information, OSFA will contact you beginning in March. OSFA will send out financial aid award emails to admitted students with instructions for reviewing your financial aid package in March/April. Any student needing financial aid in Summer Quarter will need to fill out an additional Summer Aid Application (available 4/1/22). Additionally, you will need a student ID number in the system before you receive a financial aid award, and you will need a UW NetID set up to view your financial aid award.

For students taking out financial aid, please watch this orientation video prior to reaching out with questions:

If you have additional questions about financial aid not answered by the orientation video, please refer to the SOM Financial Aid Office website for information about timelines, general financial information, etc. You can also send an email to There will be opportunities May through early July to set up appointments for a personalized/small group financial aid overview. More information about those meetings will be sent in April. Each WWAMI region will also have a short video for their state outlining any specific regional WWAMI financial aid information, available in April.
