The Financial Aid Office awards need-based aid, meaning that it is contingent on the results of the FAFSA. Your aid 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 your finalized FAFSA.

WWC students are eligible to participate in North Carolina and Vermont state grant programs depending upon residency, eligibility, and some states have FAFSA deadlines. 

The Financial Aid Office will discuss this offer 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.  If you have not given us permission to speak with your designees, we will be unable to answer specific questions about your aid.  Please complete your FERPA form ASAP!

In order to finalize their financial aid, students will need to accept or decline any pending aid on the "Accept Awards" tab of the Financial Aid Portal.  Any outstanding forms or documents can be viewed on Financial Aid Portal under the "Pending Requirements" tab.

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

New Students

Final financial aid offers will be available after the FAFSA is completed and all necessary documentation is submitted and reviewed by the Warren Wilson College Financial Aid Office. Your financial aid offer will be available to review on your Financial Aid Portal. Prior to receiving your actual offer, you can use the Net Price Calculator to generate an estimated offer letter.  

Currently Enrolled Students

All currently enrolled students will receive a notification via email that their financial aid offer is available to view on the Financial Aid Portal 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.
