Apply for the WV Higher Education Grant
To apply for the WV Higher Education Grant:
- For the 2024-25 award year, submit a completed 2024-25 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) beginning December 2023, but by the April 15, 2024, deadline.
After you have completed the FAFSA, if you do not have a WVSAM Account, you may create one to monitor your WVHEG eligibility and award information. After creating the account, you will be sent an email (may be in your junk/spam) with a link to first create your password then log in. You will need to update (and complete) your contact information by clicking your name in the My Contact Information section.
Award notifications for the West Virginia Higher Education Grant are sent to eligible high school students beginning in mid-May and to all other students in June to the email account listed on the FAFSA.
