Student Financial Aid

Even though Western Piedmont Community College is a relatively low-cost institution, many students find that they must have some financial assistance to gain the most from their college experience. This assistance may take the form of a grant, scholarship, loan, job, or a combination of any of these. The estimated total aid available at WPCC for the academic year is approximately $15 million. Financial aid is supplementary to the efforts of the student and family.

Financial aid is awarded without regard to the applicant’s race, color, religion, creed, national origin, political affiliation, gender, age, disability, medical condition, veteran status, and other categories protected by federal, state, and local anti-discrimination laws. Students receiving financial aid must be enrolled in an eligible program leading to a degree, diploma, or certificate and maintain satisfactory academic progress as outlined in the Satisfactory Academic Progress Standards for Financial Aid Recipients.

Financial aid awards and policies subject to change by action of the federal and state governments.
