    Students taking classes at Winthrop this summer may be eligible for financial aid. Summer is part of the 2022-2023 academic year so it will depend on what aid has already been used in fall 2022 and/or spring 2023. Complete and submit the Summer Financial Aid Application and we will notify you about any summer aid eligibility. Processing can take up to 4 weeks so submit the application as early as possible.

    o Make sure you have checked Wingspan for any outstanding items for both 2022-2023 and 2023-2024 award years and submit items to the Office of Financial Aid (Wingspan, Financial Aid, Eligibility, choose appropriate award year). Due to the volume of paperwork we receive in the summer, it can take us several weeks to review your information so please submit it NOW.

    Paperwork can be submitted securely through Wingspan (Financial Aid, Document Upload), dropped by the Office of Financial Aid, or sent by fax to 803/323-2557. You can also mail your documents. If you choose to scan and e-mail to, instead of document upload, we suggest you black out any private information like Social Security Numbers, because e-mail is not considered secure.
