Financial Aid and Financial Assistance

The federal philosophy for financial aid administration is that the main responsibility for financing education rests with the student and his/her family. Federal aid is available to supplement families’ resources.  For information on financial assistance available to students, please see the Financial Aid page.

In order for eligibility for federal aid to be determined, students and/or parents should complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/fafsa or fafsa.ed.gov. Apply as early as October 1 of each year for the academic year beginning the following fall. Since results from FAFSA are often required for institutional aid, it is recommended that ALL students complete the federal application.

Western’s federal school code is: 003933

Federal loans are a low, fixed interest option for students to supplement the cost of their education. The loans include Direct Subsidized and Direct Unsubsidized. 

  • No credit check or co-signer required on subsidized or unsubsidized loans
  • Flexible repayment options
  • In-school deferment of payment
  • Requires completion of the FAFSA and other steps.

Helpful link for student loans (subsidized and unsubsidized): https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/types/loans/subsidized-unsubsidized

Federal Direct PLUS loans for parents are credit-based, fixed interest option for parents of dependent undergraduate students.

  • Flexible repayment options
  • Federally insured
  • In-school deferment of payment option
  • Requires completion of the FAFSA and other steps

Helpful link for parent PLUS loan: https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/types/loans/plus

Helpful tips:

Don’t lose your loan: Before you drop a class, or if you receive a failing grade, make sure you aren’t at risk of losing your loan due to unsatisfactory academic progress.

Loans aren’t awarded automatically: Unlike grants, which are awarded automatically through your FAFSA, you must complete additional steps for loans.

Plan your class schedule wisely: Remember, federal aid will only cover courses that count toward your degree.

Higher Education does not have to equal paying a high price. Tools such as the Net Price Calculator are available for students to begin planning early for the costs of attending college.

The Western Wyoming Community College Emergency CARES Grant is provided by the U.S. Government to support students that have been negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Trump on Dec. 27, 2020. In total, the CRRSAA authorizes $81.88 billion in support for education, in addition to the $30.75 billion former Secretary DeVos expeditiously provided last spring through the Coronavirus Aid, Recovery, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, Public Law 116-136.


Western Wyoming Community College has expended rounds one and two of funding (HEERF and CRRSSA).
