Q: HOW LONG DOES IT GENERALLY TAKE FOR MY FINANCIAL AID PAPERWORK TO BE PROCESSED?

ANSWER:

WBU financial aid staff takes priority in processing student information in a timely manner. Time in processing a student’s financial aid paperwork is determined upon several factors. Student files are processed in date order; therefore, periods in which our offices are processing a great volume of documents can delay the verification process. If the documentation received is incomplete for some reason, ie...blank responses, supporting documents, etc…, the verification process will be delayed until the proper documentation is received. It is recommended that a student submit all financial aid paperwork at least 6 weeks prior to the beginning of a term in order for their aid to be awarded in advance of the term.
