We Are Here To Help

The Financial Aid Office is an integral partner in carrying out and actualizing West Chester University's overall Vision and Mission Statements as well as the University's purpose and Strategic Plan for Excellence.

We understand that one of the most challenging issues facing students and parents is the financing of a college education. The role of the Financial Aid office, within the confines of federal, state and institutional policies and available funding, is to make every effort to provide information and assistance to help students obtain the resources for which they are eligible to attend West Chester University.

Comprised of a team of dedicated customer service professionals we are committed to building strong, positive relationships inside and outside of the University. When you email our office include the nature of your inquiry in the subject line and the student's name and WCU ID# in the text. NEVER include social security numbers. Please do not attach documents!

We are here to help. Please contact us if you need assistance at (610) 436-2627.
