2019-2020 Catalog

How are selections made?

Selection for aid is made following the priority dates. Applications received by those dates will receive priority consideration for all available monies. Applications received after the date will be processed and considered for available funds. Students should begin receiving award notifications in early spring through summer. Once an award is made students can access the award notification on Western’s webpage through MyWestern. Login and password are required.

Often a combination of federal and institutional aid programs are offered to students to help meet their cost of attendance. The cost of attendance is comprised of the average costs for elements determined by financial aid policies and federal guidelines as necessary to complete an educational program at Western. These elements include but are not limited to; tuition, fees, books, room and board, travel expenses, childcare and miscellaneous living expenses. There are other elements that can be included on a case-by-case basis in the cost of attendance. Two examples of these are expenses incurred due to disability and the cost of a computer. Contact Mustang Central staff for more specifics about these and other additional elements.
