Get support managing financial aid

All of us in Financial Aid understand how confusing and intimidating the process of applying for student aid can be and that’s why we’re here to help you through it. If you don’t find an answer to your questions here, please feel free to contact our office.

Our Services

The Financial Aid Office processes the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to determine a student’s eligibility for need-based aid and Federal loans. Need-based aid consists of: Federal, state, and institutional grants - work-study -  and Federal loan programs.  The financial aid awarded through this office is based on information received from the FAFSA application.

FAFSA Application

If you will be attending Fort Lewis College in the 2022-2023 school year (starting Fall 2022), you should complete your 2022-2023 FAFSA now at the Federal Student Aid website.

The 2021-2022 FAFSA is the application for financial aid for Fall 2021, Spring 2022, and Summer 2022.

Federal School Code

The Fort Lewis College Federal School Code is 001353.

Summer Financial Aid

To receive a summer financial aid package, you must:

  • Be registered for the summer classes you intend to take

  • Have a valid 2021-2022 FAFSA on file

  • Have a complete financial aid file

It is also in your best interest to have a valid 2022-2023 FAFSA and completed financial aid file.

For most aid, you must be enrolled in a minimum of six credit hours to meet eligibility requirements.  Federal Pell grant and Direct student loan funds are determined based on credits taken and annual/aggregate limits.  Please contact the Financial Aid Office if you have additional questions.
