FAFSA Application Process

Students applying for financial aid at Windward Community College (Windward CC) should submit a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) online each year.   

To apply, please follow the steps below:

  • You (and possibly your parent – if you are dependent for FAFSA purposes) will need to create a Federal Student Aid (FSA) ID at http://fsaid.ed.gov. The FSA ID will allow you to file the FAFSA electronically.
  • File your FAFSA electronically at https://fafsa.gov. Please be sure to list Windward CC on your FAFSA, otherwise, we will not receive your results. Windward CC’s FAFSA Federal School Code is 010390. You may need financial data (tax return and asset information) to complete the FAFSA. 
  • Upon receipt of your FAFSA results, the Windward CC Financial Aid Office will inform you through your UH email via MyUH Services if additional information is required to complete your application for financial aid packaging.
  • Upon determination of your financial aid eligibility, the Windward CC Financial Aid Office will inform you of your Financial Aid status and any additional information regarding your financial aid package through your UH email.
