    Please plan to join the CHS College Counselors as we host a Financial Aid 101 Zoom Presentation.

    This Virtual Financial Aid Presentation is hosted by Michael Runiewicz, Assistant Vice Provost & Director of Student Financial Services at WashU.


    Financial Aid 101 explains:

    • documents needed to complete the FAFSA 
    • the difference between need-based and merit scholarships - and how to apply for both 
    • how to calculate and use an expected family contribution (EFC) to estimate a financial aid award 
    • how scholarships, student loans, and a campus job opportunity work together in a financial aid award 
    • how to communicate with the financial aid office to make sure families have the resources they need to attend the college of their choice

    While this is a general financial aid program (not specific to Washington University), Mike also wants to remind you of their bold financial aid program for your students - the WashU Pledge. The WashU Pledge provides free undergraduate education to incoming, full-time Missouri and Southern Illinois students who are Pell Grant eligible or from families with annual incomes of $75,000 or less. The WashU Pledge covers the full cost of a WashU education, including tuition, room, board and fees.
