Applying for Financial Aid

The Office of Financial Aid at Wesleyan University is committed to enabling the best qualified students to attend. Accordingly, Wesleyan's financial aid program awards assistance solely on the basis of financial need to US citizens and eligible non-citizens. No aid is based on academic merit, athletic ability or special talents.

The full financial need of all undergraduate students, as determined by the Office of Financial Aid, is met with a combination of loans, part-time employment and grants. Wesleyan considers the financing of education expenses to be the responsibility of students and parents, up to the level of their ability to contribute. Thus parent financial information is the primary basis for the determination of need.

Select your renewal type:

Current and Returning Student U.S. Citizen


Current and Returning Student DACA/Undocumented


International Students:

In an effort to streamline the reapplication process for international students, we do not collect your family's financial information annually. You do not need to turn any documents in to the Office of Financial Aid for 2018-19. Unless we are otherwise advised by you or your family, Wesleyan will use last year's application as a basis for determining the 2018-19 total family contribution. Our office will produce a financial aid award for you prior to your Fall bill notification. Your family has the option of requesting a formal review of your current information. If you would like a formal review please submit the CSS Profile available at, and send verification of income with English translation directly to our office by May 15th, 2018.
