Apply for Financial Aid & Scholarships
FAFSA is your friend. The Free Application for Federal Student Aid is the main step you take to apply for financial aid.
Complete the FAFSA starting Oct. 1— the earlier the better!—and before May 15.
You'll automatically be considered for some scholarships with your application to WSU. But there are many more you can apply for such as:
- Academic department scholarships
- Talent-based scholarships
- WSU Foundation scholarships
Secure Your Crib
Apply for housing and submit your $250 deposit to lock down your spot in the residence halls.
An earlier application gets you an earlier spot in the room selection process.
The sooner you send in your housing deposit, the more likely you'll get your top choice.
Connect with Your Classmates
Join the Class of 2025 Facebook Group and get to know your new friends. We also have the Winona State University Transfer Student Facebook Group just for transfer students and a Winona State Admissions Group for everyone.
Say hi, drop your Snap handles and make plans to meet IRL when you arrive on campus.
And no need to contain your excitement about becoming a Warrior.
Use #WinonaBound on Instagram to let fellow Warriors know you're on your way to WSU.
