Welcome to the Office of Financial Aid webpage at William Paterson University! We are here to provide you with the necessary information to locate and secure available funding for your education. We are committed to providing exemplary service to our students, their families, the University, and the community at large.

Our primary objective is to assist students and families in planning and meeting expenses associated with attendance at the University. We focus on establishing aid eligibility, packaging scholarships, waivers, grants, loans, Federal Work-Study employment to eligible students, and providing financial aid counseling for the resolution of problems associated with financing your education.

This web page contains all of the information you will need to navigate through the financial aid process at William Paterson University. We have links to tutorials from the federal and state programs to help streamline the financial aid process.
