Roughly two thirds of Western students receive financial aid in the form of loans, grants, scholarships or work study.
But some students – especially those without family or other resources – may encounter circumstances that cause them to run so low on funds that they go hungry. In those instances, Western can help students in need with food credits.
Financial Aid counselors assess student needs and are authorized to put up to $100 per quarter on a student’s Viking card. This money can be used at any on-campus dining location.
