STEP 1: Complete the FAFSA

Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online each year.  WWC urges students to complete the FAFSA as soon as possible.  Whenever possible, please use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool when completing the FAFSA. For returning students, our priority deadline for the 2024-2025 FAFSA is May 1st.

WWC FAFSA School Code:  002979

          Gather the following applicable documents/information to complete the FAFSA

    • Social Security Number
    • Driver license 
    • Alien registration number if you are not a U.S. citizen
    • Federal tax information including IRS W-2, tax returns, etc.


Step 2: Complete Pending Requirements

Pending requirements can be found on the Financial Aid Portal previously called Net Partner. 

If you need assistance accessing your Financial Aid Portal, please contact the WWC Financial Aid Office. 


Step 3: Financial Aid Offer

Returning students are offered financial aid late in the spring semester of each academic year. 

The WWC Financial Aid Office will notify students by email when their personal financial aid offer is ready to be viewed in their Financial Aid Portal. 


Step 4: Accept or Decline Federal Student Loans

Students will need to log in to the Financial Aid Portal and choose the "Financial Aid Offer" option from the menu on the top left. 

Federal student loans are offered to those students who completed the FAFSA.  

Students need to accept or decline each loan offer.

After making these selections, click "Submit" to finalize your offer.  

Financial aid will not be disbursed until after the drop/add date of each semester. Please note some financial aid is based on enrollment in term classes. 



STEP 5: Look for your Bill in Early June

After you have completed all the steps for your financial aid, the next step is to wait for your bill to be processed and made viewable on your myWWC portal.  

Student Accounts will generate returning student bills, and you will be notified by email when your billing statement for the next semester is ready. 

You will not receive a paper billing statement. You can view your billing statement online at anytime. 

The payment deadline for the fall semester will be July 15th of each year.  

The payment deadline for the spring semester will be December 15th of each year.
