Tips for Completing a Successful Application

  1. Complete the application in full. If a question doesn’t apply, note that on the application. Don’t just leave a blank. Be sure to attach the required essay.
  2. Follow directions. Provide everything that’s required, but don’t supply things that aren’t requested.
  3. Neatness counts. Always type your application, or if you must print, do so neatly and legibly.
  4. Write an essay that makes a strong impression. The key to writing a strong essay is to be personal and specific. Include concrete details to make your experience come alive: the who, what, where, and when of your topic. The simplest experience can be monumental if you present honestly how you were affected.
  5. Watch all deadlines. To help keep yourself on track, impose your own deadline that is at least two weeks prior to the official deadline. Use the buffer time to make sure everything is ready on time. The WPCC Application and essay are due on June 1st.
  6. Make sure your application gets where it needs to go. Put your name on all pages of the application. Return completed application to the Financial Aid Office in Hildebrand Hall.
  7. Give it a final “once-over.” Proofread the entire application carefully. Be on the lookout for misspelled words or grammatical errors. Ask a friend, teacher or parent to proof read it as well.
  8. Complete the FAFSA by June 1st. The 2016-17 FAFSA can be completed at www.fafsa.gov.
  9. Do not send in the application with the scholarship list and cover sheet still attached. These sheets should be removed before returning the application.
