Making a Wingate Education Affordable
How to Apply for Financial Aid at Wingate University

Applying for financial aid can be a confusing process. We offer this page as a brief guide to help you understand how to apply for financial aid and what happens with your aid package and when. Remember, you must be an admitted student at Wingate University and have filed the FAFSA before we can calculate an award package for you.

File the FAFSA: All students should complete the current year Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or Renewal Application. Applications may be completed online at
Students are encouraged to complete the FAFSA no later than May 1 of each year. Remember to include Wingate University’s school code (002985) on the FAFSA.

How Long? After your FAFSA has been processed, you will receive a Student Aid Report (SAR). The Financial Planning Office at Wingate will receive the Institutional Student Information Record (ISIR) approximately 10 - 14 days after your FAFSA is submitted. Upon receipt of that ISIR, and notification of your acceptance to Wingate University, the Financial Planning Office will generate your financial aid award package.

Award Package: Your award package will outline the various types of aid for which you may qualify. This may include a combination of need based grants and/or federal student loan eligibility.

Verification: If you are selected for verification, the Financial Planning Office will notify you of any additional documentation needed to finalize your award package. You can obtain detailed information about the Verification process at 

It is important to provide all information to the Financial Planning Office by the required deadlines to ensure your grant and/or loan funds will be available to you when you begin classes. Students must return one signed copy of the award letter along with any additional requested documents within thirty days or by May 1 whichever is the latest.
