Two Financial Aid applications are required for domestic students to obtain the maximum amount of aid:

1). Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)

     and one of the following applications:

2.) NEW STUDENT 2015-16 Illinois Wesleyan Financial Aid Application


If you are only interested in government (federal or state) funds, the FAFSA is all that is required.

If you choose to file the IWU Financial Aid Application, we encourage you to file electronically by clicking the appropriate link above.  We will receive your application electronically so there is no need to send us a printed copy. If you would prefer to complete a printable version of the IWU Financial Aid Application instead of the online version, please e-mail us at with that request.  If you choose to submit a paper application, please submit only one copy of the application. It can be mailed, faxed, scanned, or e-mailed.

You do not need to submit a separate application for any IWU merit awards. These are typically awarded at the time of acceptance. 

As long as the Financial Aid Office receives all requested paperwork and forms, new students can expect to receive an award proposal typically within about 2 weeks beginning March 1st.
