Emergency Grant Funds Now Available through the CARES Act
WCCC has limited federal emergency grant funds to assist students who have incurred additional costs as a result of the COVID-19 displacement. Please see the COVID Information page. To be eligible for 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. Please review the application for additional details and how to submit an application.
