HALF TUITION LOANS
Each semester, WCC offers a limited amount of funding to help offset up-front tuition costs for students. This funding is offered on a first-come, first-serve basis only.
Who is eligible?
Any curriculum student who is not currently eligible for federal financial aid assistance can apply for the half-tuition loan.
How does it work?
Once the student has registered for their courses, they will visit Kate Kehayes, F100a, in the Student Development office. The loan paperwork will be completed based on the current tuition charges, and the student will be responsible for paying half of their tuition and all applicable fees by the regular tuition due date.
The student will then have an extended period to repay the remaining balance of their tuition, typically two weeks prior to early registration for the next semester.
Please note: Half-tuition loan paperwork cannot be completed until the student is actively registered for classes.
What if I can’t come in to campus?
Half-tuition loan paperwork may be completed via student email. Email Candace Brewer at firstname.lastname@example.org to request loan paperwork via email. The student will need to print, sign, and return the paperwork along with a photo id for verification purposes. Funds are not guaranteed until paperwork has been completed and returned.
Email requests are available during Early Registration only.
All requests during Regular Registration must be completed in person at the Student Development office, F100.
Will I have to pay interest on the half-tuition loan?
There is no interest charged on the half-tuition loan, the loan is similar to a payment plan rather than a traditional loan. Some loans do have a $5.00 processing fee, this will be clearly noted on the loan paperwork.
