Financial Aid

Financial aid is available to attend East-West University if you need it. There are four different choices depending on your needs and if you meet the requirements.


Scholarships are generally awarded based on the need of the applicant or their merits. Typically, most scholarships require a 2.0 or better GPA and full-time enrollment. You can find scholarships from private donors, academic departments, or the school.


Grants are federal, state, or institutional funds that are awarded based on need. These funds are limited and are given on a first-come, first-serve basis. They do not need to be repaid as loans do.


Work-study is also a need-based type of financial aid. This aid is federal and allows students to apply for a job on campus in order to earn the funds awarded.


Loans are awarded based on need, grade level, and academic career. Most student loans are federal, though you can apply for private loans, as well. You will need to be enrolled at least half-time and can’t exceed federal aggregate limits to be eligible.
