Financial Aid

Financial aid is money provided to help bridge the gap between your own resources and the amount of money needed to pay for the cost of attending Winona State University. The primary responsibility for meeting the cost of education rests with the student and family to the extent they are able to pay. Most financial aid at Winona State is awarded on the basis of need, although some is awarded in recognition of merit and achievement. Some aid is gift aid (grant and scholarship), some you must earn (college work-study), and some is in the form of long-term loans designed to extend the financing of your education beyond the years of enrollment.

Please visit the WSU Financial Aid page for future students to learn more and apply for financial aid.
