The North Carolina Need-Based Scholarship is available to North Carolina residents only. Renewal is based on funding from the state of NC and meeting the financial need requirements set forth by the state of North Carolina. Students must have a valid certification from the NC Residency Determination Service/RDS. If a valid RDS is not received within the first 30 days of enrollment, students will lose eligibility for this funding. Please make sure you finalize RDS early. It is suggested to complete RDS and the time you complete the FAFSA. Renewal eligibility is based on continuous enrollment at WWC along with your need eligibility determined by completing an annual FAFSA.
