Take this WASFA Eligibility Questionnaire to find out if you are able to file the WASFA.

FERPA protects the privacy of student education records. The law applies to all schools that receive funds under an applicable program of the U.S. Department of Education.

A common misconception is that undocumented students are not protected by FERPA. Undocumented students are protected by FERPA and can’t be discriminated against. No federal law prevents undocumented students from accessing higher education.

No, if you complete the WASFA you don’t have to complete the FAFSA.
