Financial Aid

We offer grants, loans, scholarships and student employment opportunities for both Undergraduate and Graduate students, many of whom are eligible for some type of assistance to cover tuition and expenses.

We encourage all of our students to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA, along with the CWRU Financial Aid application, is required to determine eligibility for the various financial aid programs.

To review the necessary steps to completing a financial aid application at Case Western Reserve University, visit the University Financial Aid Office's Website.
