Office Hours

The financial aid office is open Monday to Friday 8am-5pm closed holidays.  You may contact the office by email at financialaid@wvc.edu or by phone at 509 682 6810.


Financial aid is applied to your tuition a few days before the quarter starts. You will not see your scholarships, tuition waivers, or financial aid applied on your student account until that time.  If you have been awarded financial aid or other resources , you will not be dropped from your classes.  However, if you have not been awarded financial aid or have a block on your financial aid, you will need to make payment arrangements with the cashier office.  Always feel free to contact the financial aid office to check on your status.


Winter quarter 2017 financial aid checks: Winter quarter financial aid checks are mailed during the first week of the quarter.  Financial aid is first applied to tuition charges (this takes place a few days before the quarter startes) and any remaining funds are mailed to the student.  If you are enrolled in less than 12 credits for the quarter and you do not receive an expected check, contact the financial aid office for an adjustment to your award.


 Attention DREAMers!

 A new state law has expanded eligibility for the Washington State Need Grant to low income, non-citizen students who meet the program's eligibility requirements and also satisfy the residency criteria below:

  •  Have graduated (or will do so before beginning college) from a Washington high school, or obtained a GED.
  •  Have lived in Washington for three years prior to, and continuously since earning the high school diploma or equivalent.

 Complete the FAFSA by March 15th, 2017 for priority consideration for the 2017 2018 year.  You can complete your FAFSA at www.fafsa.ed.gov.  You may still apply after this deadline, but funding will be limited.  Check with our office for more information.


Policy Change regarding Financial Aid Paying for Repeat Courses

     Starting July 1, 2011 students can only count credits of a repeated course once towards their financial aid eligibility if they had already received prior credit for the course.  For example; if a student takes a Math 101 classes and receives a D grade and wants to take the class again, financial aid will only pay for the repeat one more time.  If the student receives a D grade again, they can repeat the course, but cannot count it towards credits used in determining financial aid eligibility.


              ****New Online Debt Management Tool for Students*****

 The U.S. Department of Education (ED) just released a new online interactive loan counseling tool to help students manage their loan debt.

 The Financial Awareness Counseling Tool aims to provide students with basic financial management information, such as their current loan debt and estimates of debt levels when interest accrues after graduation.

The tool provides students with five interactive tutorials on topics including managing a budget and avoiding default. Students can also access their individual loan history and receive personalized feedback.

Check this site out for information to help you understand your financial aid and assist you in managing your finances.



 If a student has received financial aid and has decided to withdraw from the quarter, they must officially withdraw from their classes either online at the WVC website or in person at the Registration office.  This will prevent them from receiving failing grades at the end of the quarter.
