Financial Aid

How Financial Aid Pays

Here’s how the process works:

  1. Your instructors must verify that you attend at least one of the first two sessions for each of your classes.
  2. If you want to use your financial aid in the WCC Bookstore, you must authorize the bookstore to receive some of your funds. To do so, go into MyWCC after logging into the WCC Gateway, click on the Financial Aid tab, and follow the path Authorizations Information/Barnes & Noble College Bookstore Transfer Authorization. You’ll then have a credit of $75 per credit hour in the WCC Bookstore, where you can use it to buy books and supplies. Check your bookstore spending limit on MyWCC during the published bookstore dates for the semester. If you have a spending limit, take your class schedule and WCC student ID card to the bookstore to buy your books.
  3. The money is credited to your account, or disbursed, at the WCC Cashier’s Office, which deducts costs such as tuition, fees, books, and supplies.
  4. If there’s still money remaining, you’ll receive a refund through direct deposit or a paper check.

There are two exceptions:

  1. If you receive work-study, you’ll be paid every two weeks.
  2. If you’re a new college student and receive a Direct Loan, federal regulations require that WCC wait until 30 days after classes begin to credit loan funds to your account.

Here are refund dates for the Winter Semester:

Session(s) Start date Funds credited
to account
First refund date
15 weeks, First 12, 10, 7½, 5 weeks January 8 January 25 February 1
Second 12 weeks January 30 February 13 February 22
Second 10, 5 weeks February 13 February 27 March 8
Second 7½ weeks March 8 March 22 March 29
Third 5 weeks March 27 April 10 April 19

The Cashier’s Office processes refunds weekly. When you receive your refund depends on when your class(es) start.

If you’ve authorized the bookstore to receive some of your funds, that money is available in the bookstore between January 2 and January 22, 2018.
