FAFSA Fridays

WPCC Financial Aid Counselors provide assistance in completing the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Aid) when you attend any scheduled FAFSA Friday. NO appointment is necessary!

Here is the schedule for FAFSA Fridays (all are from 2:30 to 4:00 p.m. in Hildebrand Hall 127):

  • November 17
  • December 1
  • December 8

Spring 2018 Graduates

If you have not applied for Spring Graduation, the preliminary due date is Friday, November 17, 2017.

  • Pick up a graduation application in Student Services, print form from Moodle, or request that one be sent to you.
  • Contact your advisor for an appointment to review the requirements of your program of study. The application must be signed by both you and your advisor.
  • All applications must be received in the Records Office in Hildebrand Hall, Room 106, on or before November 17, 2017. Documentation used by your advisor needs to be attached to the application.
  • A preliminary graduation audit will be conducted through Student Services. You will receive a letter indicating completion of hours and payment information for the business office. If you have not met all requirements, a letter will be sent to you and your advisor listing these deficiencies.
  • If your graduation audit reveals that you have completed, or are currently registered for all classes required for graduation, a $30 graduation fee will be added to your student account. This fee will be good for the current academic year in which you applied. If you do not complete all of the required courses within the academic year in which you apply, you will be charged an additional $30 fee upon re-application.
  • If you do not intend to register for any outstanding courses during the early registration period, you should not submit a graduation application until you register or by the final deadline of Monday, February 5, 2018.
