Financial aid is awarded on an annual basis. The renewal of financial aid is not automatic and failure to submit renewal applications may result in the loss of financial aid. Students must, therefore, reapply for financial assistance each year, and renewal of awards is based on the timely completion of all required documents and on the student's continued eligibility for assistance.
The deadline for requests for renewal of financial aid is May 1. In addition to demonstrating continued financial need, students must also meet specific academic progress requirements to qualify for renewal. These requirements are explained in detail and can be found on the Wilkes-University website under Consumer Information, Student Financial Assistance, Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy.
