To qualify for financial aid you must first be enrolled at Wilkes Community College. If you have not already applied for admission, visit the Admissions page to complete the admissions process.

Once you are approved for financial aid, you must register for classes.

Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. Visit the US Department of Education’s web site to apply for aid online (FAFSA ). Students will be considered for all aid programs available through the college (as described in this section) except certain scholarship or loan programs.

Continuation of financial aid from one academic year to the next is not automatic. Students who plan to enroll in college for another year must re-apply for financial aid. Applications (Free Application for Federal Student Aid and the WCC Scholarship Application) will be available after January 1.

The WCC Financial Aid Office offers information sessions each semester to assist student’s with the application process for financial aid. If you are interested, contact 336-838-6144 for more information.

As a student, you have been issued a WCC Student email account and a WebAdvisor account. It is important that you attempt logging into these accounts NOW and begin checking each regularly. The financial aid office will use the WCC email account to communicate information regarding your financial aid award. Instructions on how to login in to each account is located at
The U.S. Department of Education has made it easy for students to apply for federal aid. Applications are completed online using the previous years tax returns (ex. 2015-16 school year uses 2014 taxes). Here are some tips to help you with the process.

  • Currently you must have a FSA Username and Password in order to apply for financial aid. This can be set up here.
  • Dependent students must have a username and password and a parent must also have a username and password. Both a student and a parent user id and password must be used to submit your FAFSA.
  • You can work on your FAFSA and save your work without submitting it. You will be given instructions on how to save it. You can return at a later time to complete your FAFSA.
