The 2020-2021 financial aid year includes FOUR (4) quarters, with Summer 2021 as the last quarter of the financial aid year.
Summer quarter financial aid requires students to complete the *2020-2021* FAFSA and a separate WVC summer worksheet that will be available once registration for summer quarter begins (May 2021). You must complete page 1 of the worksheet, attach a copy of your summer quarter schedule and submit it to our office for processing.
Visit our 2020-2021 Forms page for more information and to download the summer worksheet.
Summer 2021 Tuition Due Date is usually mid-June. If your Summer aid has not been processed (showing as “Open” Status in the Financial Aid Management [FAM] Student Portal) by the required tuition due date, you will need to pay your tuition on your own. You may apply for a payment plan with the cashiers office.
Eligibility Requirements for Summer Financial Aid
In order to be eligible for summer financial aid you must be earning a degree or qualified certificate from Wenatchee Valley College. Visiting students (students pursuing a degree elsewhere and attending WVC for the Summer quarter only) are not eligible for financial aid.

Types of Financial Aid Available for Summer Quarter:
Financial aid grants for summer are limited to the following:
- Pell Grant: Pell Grant funding is available in the summer, for eligible students, subject to remaining annual and lifetime limits. Pell Grant can now be fully funded year round, up to 150% of the annual amount for
eligible students. This allows for Pell funding in the summer for most students,
even if you went full-time prior quarters. PLEASE NOTE: You must be enrolled in at least 6 credits to receive any amount beyond
100% of your annual base award amount. If you attended other schools in the current year, it may have an impact on your annual/lifetime
award. If you have already reached your annual (150%) or lifetime limit, you will not
be eligible for Summer Pell Grant.
- WVC Grant: Summer WVC Grant aid will be available. Awarding of WVC Grant will be subject to
eligibility and/or funding limitations.
- College Bound Scholarship (CBS) & Washington College Grant (WCG): College Bound Scholarship recipients may receive a combination of CBS and WCG funds during summer.
The Federal Stafford Loan Programs, subsidized and unsubsidized, are available. In addition to the WVC 2020-2021 Federal Direct Student Loan Worksheet, you must have a 2020-2021 FAFSA on file in our office, with the file review process complete. Note: If you had a loan during spring quarter, you do not need to submit a new loan worksheet for summer. Just submit a loan adjustment form and we will review your eligibility**.
**Lifetime, Annual and quarterly maximums apply. Summer quarter 2021 is considered the last quarter of the 2020-2021 school year. Any loan amount you request for summer will count against your annual loan limit for the 2020-2021 year. If you have already received your annual limit for 2020-2021, you will not be eligible for any summer loans.
Limited funds. Please visit our 2020-2021 Forms page for more information and to download the summer work study forms. These forms are usually available late May/early June.
When will Summer Financial Aid be available?
Disbursements are made during the first week of the quarter, if there are any remaining funds after your tuition & fees have been paid and you have no outstanding debts to WVC, including parking tickets, library fines & other charges.
Disbursement of your remaining financial aid funds (after your tuition & fees have been paid) will be made through BankMobile. Please make sure you have chosen your refund preference. Visit the WVC financial aid website for additional BankMobile information.
Payment of Tuition and Fees:
Scenario A: If your summer financial aid (including loans) has been processed prior to the tuition due date and your financial aid will cover the full cost of your tuition, the financial aid funds will be applied to your account and any remaining funds will be disbursed through BankMobile, according to your refund selection preference.
Scenario B: If your summer financial aid (including loans) has been processed prior to the tuition due date and your financial aid will cover only part of your tuition, then you must pay the balance on or before the first day of class. If you do not pay the balance, you might be removed from your classes, or be sent to collections for payment.
Scenario C: If you have applied for financial aid (including loans) but have not been granted funding, you must pay your tuition by the tuition due date or if registering after the tuition due date, you must pay within 24 hours of registration. You can apply for a payment plan with the cashier office. Once financial aid has been processed, and if you are eligible for financial aid, the funds will be disbursed as follows: 1) applied to any tuition & fees balance still owing on your WVC account and 2) remaining funds will be disbursed to you through BankMobile, according to your refund selection preference.
