Happy New Year, It’s FAFSA Time!

Pell Grant, State Need Grant, Federal & State Work Study Dollars, Scholarships and Student Loans


You can apply for all of these educational funding programs by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Now that the new year is upon us, it s time to apply for the 2013-2014 academic year.

Are you already receiving financial aid? Great! Please remember that you must fill out the FAFSA annually. Whatcom’s Deadline for Priority Awarding is March, 15th!

Just follow the link provided above. You will be asked to input school codes. WCC College code is 010364. You can file now and estimate your tax information. Later you are able to go back and input more accurate information once your taxes are done.

In about a week or two, the information you provided on the  FAFSA will be delivered electronically from the federal government to Whatcom Community College’s Financial Aid Office, and you will be able to view it on the Financial Aid Portal. Check the portal often as it holds the official notification for all of your financial aid processing. There will be additional forms and information you will need to provide us under the section “Information We Need From You.”

For more step by step details about the awarding and distribution process, please visit WCC’s Financial Aid Web Page.
