Financial Aid

There are a variety of options available to students with disabilities to pay for their college experience. One of the first things that all families should do is complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) must be completed every academic year a student is interested in federal financial aid. Please note some state aid and scholarship programs require the student to have a valid FAFSA. Learn more about the FAFSFA process by visiting https://financialaid.wvu.edu/applying-for-aid/fafsa.

Note: The priority deadline to submit is March 1 for the upcoming academic year to receive the best aid offer available to you. However, the FAFSA may still be completed after March 1 for consideration for some federal grants and loans.

The following resources are available to students and their families as potential support for program costs:

  1. West Virginia Department of Rehabilitation Services (WVDRS) – The Division of Rehabilitation Services is West Virginia's primary vocational rehabilitation resource for people with disabilities who want to work. DRS helps many West Virginians prepare for careers consistent with their interests, needs and abilities. DRS helps many more to maintain their current employment if a disability is making it difficult to continue working.

    Vocational rehabilitation provides direct, personalized services. During the vocational rehabilitation process, a counselor will work with you one-on-one to plan an individualized program that leads to paid employment.

A STABLE Account is an investment account available to eligible individuals with disabilities. STABLE Accounts are made possible by the federal Achieving a Better Life Experience (“ABLE”) Act. STABLE Accounts allow individuals with disabilities to save and invest money without losing eligibility for certain public benefits programs, like Medicaid or SSI. Earnings in your STABLE Account are not subject to federal income tax, so long as you spend them on “Qualified Disability Expenses.” To learn more visit https://wvable.com/
