Financial Aid Forms


Complete your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) college financial aid form as soon after January 1 as possible. Include Wayland Baptist University (code: 003663) as a recipient of your financial aid application information. FAFSA college financial aid forms that are returned first get processed first and receive the first share of federal money dedicated to each university. If you turn in your FAFSA late, you may end up not receiving some forms of federal financial aid, even if you qualify!

Always feel free to contact the Wayland Baptist University Office of Financial Aid for any FAFSA questions you might have! Remember, get every financial aid form in as soon as you can!

This type of consideration may be necessary due to a special circumstance the family is facing, such as economic hardship, or other extenuating factors.
