Accessing the PNWU Financial Aid Portal

You may access the results of your FAFSA and view federal loan eligibility online through the secure portal! Using the PNWU Financial Aid Portal will allow you to:

  • Check the status of your financial aid application
  • View a list of documents we've received from you and a list of any documents still outstanding 
  • View your financial aid eligibility
  • Accept, reduce, or decline your federal student loan(s)
  • Check the status of your federal student loan for the current year
  • View your overall federal student loan history

After PNWU has received your FAFSA information, the Financial Aid Office will review your file and offer you a federal student loan package. You can view the offer on the Self-Service site as soon as it’s offered, but you will need to access the Financial Aid Portal to accept/reduce/decline your loan(s).

Next steps and login information:

  • You must accept, reduce, or decline your federal student loans through the portal. Your loans will not be processed until you do so. (If your application has not been processed yet, no federal student loans will show in the portal.)
  • Once you accept/reduce/decline your federal student loan(s), the Financial Aid Office will receive electronic notification and we can proceed with processing.
  • To access the portal, follow this link: Please be sure to bookmark it.
    • Your username is your PNWU email address, and your password is your PNWU network password.
  • The portal uses “single sign on”, meaning that if you are signed into the network and you want to access the portal, it will automatically open for you; you don’t have to sign in separately.

By creating a PNWU Financial Aid Portal account, a student agrees to participate in electronic transactions with the Financial Aid Office. Students who wish to opt out of electronic transactions and receive paper notifications must contact the Financial Aid Office for further instruction. If you have any questions or concerns about consumer information, your financial student loan eligibility, or your responsibilities, please contact the Financial Aid Office.
