WWU pledges to offset potential financial aids cuts from sequester

Western Washington University students receiving federal financial aid will be able to continue getting the same amount of funding through the 2013-14 school year, even if their aid is affected by automatic federal spending cuts that could kick in Friday, March 1.

The university has pledged to use reserves to offset any loss of aid to its current and prospective students this school year and next caused by the automatic cuts, known as the sequester.
