Future Students

Welcome to the Winona State University Financial Aid Office's website. The Future Students website is set up to provide basic financial aid information here at Winona State. The Financial Aid Office considers you to be a future student until the point you have been academically accepted to Winona State University and have received an Official Financial Aid Award Letter. Once you receive your Official Financial Aid Award Letter, the Financial Aid Office considers you to be a current student.

Below is a YouTube video on an overview of the financial aid process.

The Application for Financial Aid (FAFSA) is the application for all federal and state financial aid. The FAFSA must be submitted every year you wish to receive financial aid. Winona State University's Title IV School Code is 002394. It is recommended that you use the IRS data retrieval system to have the IRS input your financial information into your FAFSA. This will reduce the likelihood of being selected for verification, and being required to submit your tax documentation to the Financial Aid Office.

The FAFSA should be submitted as soon as possible after October 1 for priority consideration. Students submitting the FAFSA after May 15 are considered late filers and may experience a delay in the receipt of their award notification and fall semester financial.

The Financial Aid Office again welcomes you, and should you have any questions please feel free to contact us.
