The same application materials are required for home-schooled students, except for those with composite ACT scores less than 24, who must also take the GED exam and submit scores to the Office of Admissions.
Students must complete their application files for the fall by February 15 to be considered for scholarships. Washburn annually awards approximately $6 million in scholarships to first-time undergraduates. To qualify for scholarships, you must have a high school GPA of at least 3.0 and an ACT composite score of at least 21. Awards range from $500-5,000.
All students are encouraged to apply for federal financial aid. 5 to 7 days after you complete the application, you will receive your Student Aid Report, which the Financial Aid Office uses to determine your eligibility for aid before notifying you of your awards via USPS. The Financial Aid Office has information about grants and loans. You must complete your application file before you receive a financial aid disbursement. The Business Office keeps a schedule of financial aid refunds.
