2014-2015 Catalog

How should I apply?

For institutional scholarship inquiries and applications, students should contact the WWCC Admissions Office. Western’s priority funding date for most academic and institutional scholarships is July 1 and April 1 for Federal and Foundation Aid programs. Since aid programs are in high demand, students are encouraged to meet the priority dates while funds are still available. Aid is not reserved for late applicants and awards are made as files are completed.

For federal aid programs, students must file the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid), and are responsible for submitting additional information requested by WWCC within the established deadline. Funds are limited and the process may be lengthy, so students should plan accordingly.

For WWC Foundation aid, students must submit the Civic Grant application to the Financial Aid Office. As many of these grants are need based, students are strongly encouraged to file the FAFSA. WWCC must have the civic grant application and FAFSA results on file in the Financial Aid Office by April 1 for priority consideration.

All financial aid applicants must have graduated from high school or completed their GED requirements and be degree seeking at WWCC.
