Is Western Washington University housing first come first serve?
Western Washington University
Your housing priority is based on the date you submit your application for admission. The earlier you apply to the university, the more likely you are to end up in one of your top residence hall choices. The actual housing application runs between February 1 and May 1, but as long as you're applying for housing within that on-time range, the date you applied for admission will be what determines your housing priority.

If I receive more scholarship money than I can use, do I get to keep the remaining amount when I graduate?
Western Washington University
Different scholarships have different rules, so it's always best to bring your scholarship questions directly to the office or organization that awarded it. There are very few one-size-fits-all answers when it comes to scholarships. Questions about anything you are offered via federal financial aid (FAFSA) can be directed to the Financial Aid Office at https://www.finaid.wwu.edu/client_services/pages/contact.php. Questions about specific admissions scholarships can go to admissions@wwu.edu.
