Your Required Renewal/Graduate Form must be submitted.

Your FAFSA must be submitted, or, if not eligible to submit FAFSA, your WASFA must be submitted.


If you completed the Required Renewal/Graduate Form, you will be notified by email of your Renewal Status. At this time we will also confirm your award amounts per term for the upcoming year, and to which college your award will be sent.

WSOS will send your funding at the college you indicated on the Required Renewal/Graduate Form that you are attending in the fall.


College financial aid offices receive and process WSOS checks and apply the funding to student accounts. Your funding most likely won’t be processed and added your account until a couple of weeks into the term. If you don’t see the funding by that time please check with your financial aid office. See Payment Information for details.
