Financial Assistance

The Financial Assistance Office strives to promote the educational success of the WNC community by providing professional service and resources, and by reducing financial barriers.

Participation in Courses Requirement

Federal Regulations require students receiving federal student aid to be academically active in courses they are registered for by the Financial Assistance Census Date, January 28, 2019.

Instructors will report academic activity after the Financial Assistance Census date. Failure to be academically active in each course, by this date, will have an impact on student’s federal financial assistance, which could result in a reduction of aid and a balance due.

Federal Student Loan Disbursements (Including PLUS Loans)

Beginning with the Spring 2019 semester, Federal Student Loans will begin disbursing after the Financial Assistance Census Date, January 28, 2019. All other aid types will disburse as scheduled, beginning the week of January 14, 2019, for students with complete financial aid files. Upon confirmation of a student’s academic activity, loan disbursements will begin.

**If you are ONLY receiving federal student loans, you will be protected from the enrollment cancellations until your loan is disbursed.**
