Financial Aid at USH

Students who wish to apply financial aid funds to their USH Affiliated Housing rent payment must follow the steps below to authorize WCU to disburse the financial aid to USH Affiliated Housing directly. Eligible students may elect to use part or all of their financial aid refund to apply to their USH invoice.

ELIGIBLE STUDENTS ARE THOSE STUDENTS THAT ARE:

  • Living in University Student Housing
  • Have financial aid that exceeds their WCU charges for tuition, fees, and meal plan
  • Have confirmed their enrollment (activated their account)

STEP 1: ACTIVATE MYWCU

  • Activate your MyWCU account. Complete all outstanding financial aid verification. Failure to do so will delay your financial aid disbursement and could result in you having to pay rent in full out of pocket and possibly accruing late fees.

IMPORTANT NOTES

  • The student is responsible for requesting enough financial aid to cover the cost of housing.
  • This process must be completed per deadlines stated above.
  • If the amount authorized to be disbursed to USH does not cover the cost of rent and fees, the student is responsible for paying the remaining balance by the due date outlined by USH.
  • Read all communications from WCU and USH carefully to ensure you do not miss a necessary step or deadline.
  • If the financial aid is not disbursed or the status as a WCU student/USH resident changes, the student remains responsible for all outstanding rent and late fees.
  • If WCU changes the amount of financial aid authorized to USH it is the residents responsibility to pay outstanding balance immediately.

Please contact the Leasing Center if you are experiencing issues with authorizing aid.
