Complete & Submit the FAFSA
You need to fill out the FAFSA or Free Application for Federal Student Aid. The FAFSA is used to apply for federal student financial aid, such as grants, loans and work-study. Information from the FAFSA is also used to award non-federal aid. The result produced by a completed FAFSA is your Expected Family Contribution or EFC number which is provided by the government. The EFC number is a measure of your family’s financial strength. It is used to determine your eligibility for federal student aid. You can learn more about the FAFSA by visiting the financial aid FAFSA website and www.fafsa.ed.gov. When you fill out the FAFSA you will need to include Willamette University’s school code as well as your social security number to ensure the Financial Aid Office receives the results. Willamette University’s school code is 003227.
