Incoming Wichita State University freshman for the 2017-18 academic year have a new financial aid option to consider.
High school seniors who have permanent residence in Sedgwick County can receive consideration for the newly established need-based Sedgwick County Access Grant at Wichita State.
To be eligible, the applicants must meet the following criteria:
- Be a domestic, undergraduate, first-time student to WSU
- Have a minimum unweighted 3.0 high school cumulative GPA
- Have an ACT score of 21 or higher (SAT 980) or rank in top third of high school graduating class
- Meet the Dec. 1 priority date for the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
- Be a Pell-Grant eligible student to receive priority consideration
The grant award amount range from $250 to $4000 for students enrolled in at least 12 credit hours, and is considered the final payee to cover unmet need up to tuition and can be combined with other scholarships and gift aid. Awards are renewable for up to four years or until graduation, whichever comes first.
The Sedgwick County Access Grant is awarded on a first-applied, first-awarded basis until the funds are exhausted. Students must be fully admitted to Wichita State and have a completed FAFSA at Wichita State by Dec. 1.
