Answer: Students that will be returning to WPI for the next academic year only need to file a FAFSA for the next academic year. The FAFSA for the next academic year is usually available around the first week of October. The FAFSA is not due to our office until April 15 of the current academic year.
Financial aid offers for returning students are not sent until the first week of July each year. The awarding process cannot start until all grades have been posted after the end of D Term as as student's academic standing may affect their financial aid.
