New and Current Students

As a newly accepted or current student, individual application items are available on the student financial aid portal, Net Partner. Newly accepted students will receive email communication from the Office of Student Financial Aid regarding Net Partner access after acceptance, beginning in January.

It is important to begin the application process by completing the 2017-2018 Free Application For Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online which becomes available every January 1.  If you are completing a renewal FAFSA and lost your pin, please visit PIN.ed.gov. The FAFSA is a Department of Education form required for all University’s to determine a student’s eligibility for Federal aid. Parental tax information is NOT required nor is it used for the calculation of your Federal loan offers. If eligible, we highly recommend using the IRS Data Retrieval Tool on FAFSA.  Using the tool may reduce the need to submit additional verification information.   To use the Retrieval Tool, wait 3 weeks after e-filing your Federal tax return or 8 weeks after filling by mail.

Step One: Login to netpartnerstudent.wustl.edu  (use your SSN as student ID. Select new user OR login using a previously established PIN).

Step Two: Select “My Documents” tab for a personalized list of all required items. NOTE:  Some items may change based on selections of aid you accept and/or decline. Check this tab often for updates.

As all of your required documents are submitted and reviewed, our office will create a financial aid award package and notify you via email to view/accept/decline your aid on Net Partner under the ‘View/Accept/Decline’ tab.

The priority processing deadline is May 1, 2017. This will allow us the opportunity to provide students with a comprehensive financial aid package prior to the beginning of the program start date.

Please note: additional forms and/or loan promissory notes may be necessary depending on the aid a student chooses to accept. Those forms will populate as “Not Received” under the “My Documents”  tab on Net Partner. If you decline aid, those items will be waived at a later time, and is not automatic. It is advised to check for updates frequently during the initial processing time frame, prior to the start of the term.
