How to Apply for Financial Aid

Before you apply: Before you apply for financial aid, you should apply for admission to VWCC as a degree/certificate student.

1. Complete the FAFSA

Complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as soon as you can. To make sure your financial aid award is posted before the first tuition payment due date you should submit your Free Application for Federal Student Aid before the priority deadline. This application needs to be completed each year. There are 3 ways to apply:

2. Check Your VWCC Email Often

Important information and instructions will be delivered to you via your VWCC email account.

3. Respond to Financial Aid Requests for Additional Information

Respond to any financial aid requests you receive from VWCC. Be sure to complete and submit any additional requested materials as soon as you can.

4. Report Scholarships

Notify the Financial Aid Office of all scholarships received by submitting the Scholarship Information Form (PDF). Additional scholarships and awards require recalculation of your financial aid eligibility, which may result in a reduction of previously-awarded financial aid.
