Financial Aid

What is Financial Need?

To qualify for most financial aid, you must have financial need. Financial need is the difference between the cost of attending WCC and what you and your parent(s) can afford to pay.

The U.S. Department of Education determines how much you can afford. It calculates this number from information you supply on your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The resulting number is called the Expected Family Contribution (EFC).

The total amount of financial aid you receive cannot exceed the cost of attending WCC.

How Much Does WCC Cost?

The cost of attending WCC depends on your residency status: in district, out of district, or out of state. The Financial Aid office has estimated a cost of attendance for full-time enrollment at each tuition rate for the 2016-2017 academic year. The numbers are for one semester:

At times, a student’s family situation may be unusual and have an impact on the household’s ability to pay for college. Examples of unusual circumstance may include, but are not limited to: a change in income/employment, divorce or separation, or death of a spouse or parent. If the student (or parent of a dependent student) believes they have an unusual circumstance, please contact the Financial Aid Office. The Financial Aid Office may perform a professional judgment based on the family situation.
