Applying for Aid

At Washington and Lee University we work to eliminate financial barriers and encourage students to believe that an exceptional education is within their grasp. W&L is committed to meet 100% of your institutionally determined financial need.  We meet this need using a combination of generous university grant, federal and state grant, and a $2,000 work-study award.  No loans will be included in your award package to meet your calculated need. 

Eligibility for university need-based grant or for The W&L Promise is based on a careful assessment of the family's income and assets, and need-based grants are available to all eligible students who complete the required financial aid documents by the relevant deadline. Please review our deadlines and application process, and contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
