The Office of Financial Aid at Wesleyan University is committed to enabling the best qualified students to attend, regardless of the family's financial circumstances. Accordingly, Wesleyan's financial aid program awards assistance solely on the basis of financial need. These pages contain information on the financial aid application process as well as award and financing options for prospective first-year, transfer and returning undergraduate students as well as graduate students.
Our office will begin processing FAFSA, CSS Profile, and IDOC submissions in mid-November. At that time, we will begin emailing applicants seeking financial aid and direct them to their WesPortal to track the status of their application requirements.
The application deadline for returning undergraduate students will continue to be May 15, 2017 regardless of the early availability of the FAFSA, CSS/PROFILE, and IDOC.
However, we do encourage students and parents to complete the application process early if it is convenient for them to do so!!
You are welcome to view and track the status of your documents requirements beginning in mid-November via the SIMON financial aid web portal for returning students. We anticipate providing communications regarding outstanding financial aid renewal requirements beginning in March 2017 and onward. Students and parents should anticipate notification of their financial aid for the 2017-18 academic year after June 1, 2017.
