Financial Aid

CONTACTS

The Financial Aid office helps students seeking financial assistance meet their educational expenses at LWTech. Students need not be low income to qualify for some types of financial assistance. Students may apply for most types of financial aid by completing the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) or WASFA (Washington Application for State Financial Aid, see information below).

Apply Early

Because the FAFSA must be submitted each academic year (summer through spring), it is advised that students apply as soon as possible after October 1, before the year they will be attending LWTech (for example October 1, 2022 for attending during the 2023-2024 academic year). The Application Process page has detailed information on how to apply for financial aid. 

Apply by or before the priority deadline date for the quarter you wish to attend. See above for current processing times.
