Financial Aid

WPCC Federal School Code – 002982

The Financial Aid Office will send all notifications (requests for missing items, award letters, etc.) electronically.  Students MUST check campus email or Pioneer Pass accounts to see what items are needed by the Financial Aid Office or to see award letters. We offer a guide on using Pioneer Pass for students (PDF file – get the free Adobe Reader here).

The primary purpose of the WPCC Financial Aid Office is to provide financial assistance to those students, who without such assistance would be unable to attend WPCC.  Financial aid is awarded on a first come – first served basis. The financial aid office participates in a variety of financial aid programs.  Scholarships and grants are gift awards which do not have to be repaid.  Loans and work study are considered self help aid since repayment or performance of duties are required.
