Financial Aid

Responsibility for coordinating all student financial assistance is assigned to the Financial Aid Office. This responsibility includes scholarships, grants, loans, VA benefits, and federal work study. Each student is urged to consider the various financial aid options available.

The types of financial assistance at WWCC include:

  • Aid based on assessed financial need
  • Academic excellence
  • Foundation and Institutional aid

All Federal, and most Foundation aid, requires completion of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

Supporting information may be required. Some institutional scholarships require the student to write a personal essay that details their career goals and educational plans, and submit two letters of  recommendation to support the application. Additionally, students must submit final high school transcript, be accepted for admission to WWCC, and be in an eligible educational program before any financial aid award is disbursed.
