Reporting Expected Outside Scholarship Funds
The Whitworth University Financial Aid Office requests that all expected outside scholarships be reported to our office by phone, email or through this easy online form. We will include these scholarships in your financial aid offer. This information is also used by the student accounts office to recognize outside scholarships as a resource toward your costs and to reduce the amount you owe the university.
As of July 13, 2021, the federal U.S. Department of Education has suspended the requirement that schools verify students who were federally selected for standard verification in the 2021-22 academic-year. Students selected for V4 and V5 verifications related to confirming identity and overall eligibility must still provide the required documentation.
There may be cases when the financial aid counselor will still request and require documentation in order to resolve conflicting information on a student's FAFSA.
Special Circumstance Information
We recognize that students and parents may have expenses and/or loss of income that are not reflected on the FAFSA. For the 2021-22 academic year, continuing students can complete the following form to be reviewed for Special Circumstances. These forms will be reviewed starting in late April.
New incoming students should contact their admissions counselor for information related to submitting special circumstances.
