New Students

All prospective students may receive either an estimated or actual award depending on their status at the time of packaging.  Please remember that an estimated award is not finalized and does not constitute a final offer of financial aid.  Your final award letter may be greater or less than your estimated awards based on the other information we receive from you.  Final award letters will be available after the FAFSA is completed and all necessary documentation is submitted and reviewed by the Warren Wilson College Financial Aid Office.

Currently Enrolled Students

All currently enrolled student will receive notification via email that their financial aid package is available to view on Net Partner once their FAFSA has been submitted and reviewed by the Warren Wilson Financial Aid Office.  Students who do not submit a FAFSA will only be considered for institutional aid.

The Financial Aid Office awards need-based aid, meaning that it is contingent on the results of the FAFSA. Your award will consist of the Federal Direct Loan (either Subsidized, Unsubsidized, or a combination of both) and work earnings (Federal Work-Study, Federal Work College, or Institutional).  Students may also be eligible for the Warren Wilson College Grant dependent on need as determined by information provided on the FAFSA.

WWC students are eligible to participate in North Carolina, Rhode Island, or Vermont state grant programs depending upon residency, eligibility, and having met the state's FAFSA application deadline.

The Financial Aid Office will discuss this award and any resulting questions with the student and any parent(s) granted access by the student via the FERPA form provided on their MyWWC portal.

In order to finalize their financial aid, students will need to accept or decline each individual award on the "Accept Awards" tab on Net Partner.  Any outstanding forms or documents can be viewed on Net Partner under the "Pending Requirements" tab.

If accepted federal loans, first time borrowers must also complete a Master Promissory Note and Entrance Counseling at
