Financial Aid

Get Money for College

There’s good news about financial aid: Money is available to help you pay for school.

Some of the money you have to pay back, and some of it you don’t. Some of it you earn by working on campus or off in a work-study job.

Financial aid comes in many forms:

About 40 percent of WCC students receive financial aid. In a typical year, WCC students get over $40 million in financial aid. Roughly half of that is loans, which you have to pay back, and half is aid that you don’t pay back: grants, scholarships, and work-study.

All students should apply for financial aid. Why? Because it isn’t always based just on income. Almost everyone at least qualifies for loans. Nonetheless, the amount of money you can receive is primarily based on your financial need.
