The purpose of financial aid at West Chester is to provide financial assistance to those who can benefit from further education but cannot attend college without assistance. Financial aid is a supplement to family contributions for educational costs. In addition to counseling on the various types of aid available, the office staff can assist in planning a budget and in completing financial aid applications. Parents are welcome to contact the office for information.
Specific information concerning financial aid programs is available in the Office of Financial Aid or in the financial aid section of the University's website. Students might also want to check and see if they are eligible for any of the scholarships and awards listed online at the WCU Financial Aid Scholarship website. Financial aid is available only to those enrolled as degree students who maintain satisfactory academic progress. Specific guidelines concerning academic progress are available online or from the Office of Financial Aid at 610-436-2627.
