Financial Aid

Over 92% of WCCC students who are enrolled in programs leading to a degree, certificate, or diploma receive some type of Federal Student Aid to help cover the costs of their education.

Students are also eligible for other forms of aid that can help cover the costs of tuition, fees, books, and living expenses such as rent, transportation, and childcare.

We strongly encourage students needing financial assistance to apply for aid, and we are available to assist you with the application process.

Getting started

The WCCC Financial Aid Office has provided a few helpful guides to help you complete the financial aid process:

WCCC FAFSA School Code: 009231

Financial Aid Deadlines

We strongly encourage students to fill out the FAFSA before May 1 for the next school year so they can qualify for a Maine State Grant if otherwise eligible.

Financial aid applications are processed as they are received at WCCC.

We cannot guarantee the applications submitted less than two weeks before the start of the term will be awarded in time for students to be able to use a bookstore credit, if eligible, to “charge” their books against their financial aid before school starts.
