A Smart Investment
At Case Western Reserve University, we understand financing a college education is an important consideration. We realize that tuition, fees and other expenses make it difficult for many students (and their families) to finance the cost of attending a college or university without some form of financial assistance. To that end, we operate a sophisticated program of financial aid and scholarship opportunities to assist students and to ease the financial burden that a college education may represent.
Financial Aid for Continuing Students
Case Western Reserve students who receive need-based financial aid from the university, including grants, Federal Work-Study or federal loans must apply for financial aid each year. Returning students should complete the FAFSA as well as the CWRU Financial Aid Form no later than May 15 using their 2013 tax information.
Completing the FAFSA
Each year approximately three fourths of our undergraduate students receive assistance, either in the form of merit-based academic awards and scholarships, need-based financial aid (loans, grants, work study) or both.
Students applying for need-based aid via the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to can find a helpful resource in this video from the Department of Education.
