Submission of Requested Documents

Due to recent guidance issued by the Federal Student Aid division of the Department of Education, we can no longer accept documentation with any Personally Identifiable Information (PII) via an unsecured email or fax. PII is any data that could potentially identify a specific individual or any information used to distinguish one person from another. This includes names, school IDs, SSNs, Dates of Birth, etc.

Therefore, we must ask that you submit documents that have been requested in one of the following ways:

  • By Mail:
    Office of Financial Aid
    Wofford College
    429 N. Church Street
    Spartanburg, SC 29303
  • In Person:
    Bring your forms by our office. We are upstairs from the Office of Admission in the Hugh S Black Administration Building.


Please contact our office should you have questions or concerns. Thank you for understanding.

We encourage all students to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to determine any need based aid opportunities offered by South Carolina (for SC residents) or Wofford College. The FAFSA is made available after October 1st of the student’s senior year. Wofford’s priority deadline for new students is January 1st. Wofford does not require the CSS Profile.

Important Information When Using a “Scholarship Search”

Using an online “SCHOLARSHIP SEARCH” maybe helpful in identifying potential scholarship opportunities. If you choose to utilize any scholarship search or service, online or otherwise, we recommend that you check to be sure it is a safe, trusted & legitimate search or website and that you are not charged a fee for the services. Also check to be sure that students' names & other personal information are not collected for resale to third parties.

Know your Institutional Aid

The Scholarships/Grants offered at Wofford remain the same during the student’s 4-year academic career, pending successful completion at the end of each academic year. All of our scholarships and grants have GPA and hour requirements for renewal. Those requirements may be found on page 9 in our Financial Aid Handbook. All students are encouraged to read through our Financial Aid Handbook to learn more about the terms and conditions of their aid.
