Safety Information and Protocols for Fall 2021 Return to Campus

 

 

EMERGENCY GRANTS FOR STUDENTS available for fall

WCCC has emergency grant funds to assist students who have incurred additional hardships as a result of the COVID-19 displacement.  This can include expenses for tuition and fees, housing, technology, board (food expenses) and other related educational expenses.  These funds may be very critical for students who have needs that are not met through financial aid programs.

The federal government strongly encourages all CARES applicants to first submit a FAFSA.  This is so that available federal and state financially aid funds can first be used to meet student needs.  There are significant state and federal grants available for financially needy students.   Even if you have not been eligible for financial aid in prior years,  you may now be eligible, especially if your family income was impacted through CARES.  The Financial Aid office is able to reexamine your financial circumstances and may be able to award you with additional federal (non-loan) assistance.

CARES applications are now available for the fall 2021 semester.  To be eligible for a CARES funds, you meet the federal definition of “student.”  This means that we must verify that you have attended class(es) in the fall semester before releasing funds.  However, if you are applying for tuition and fee support, the College will hold your classes for you so that you are not dropped for non-payment.
