Our staff will be responding to emails and voicemails as we are able to,

**Spring Quarter Financial Aid Disbursements**  

  Spring quarter financial aid disbursement is scheduled to begin the afternoon of April 3rd to all qualifying students. This is the original date for the start of Spring quarter disbursement.

Students who have been awarded spring quarter financial aid, remain in good academic standing, and are currently registered for full-time credits (or have informed us prior to the quarter of less than full-time enrollment) should expect to receive their funding during the week of April 6.

The financial aid office is assuming that students will start their classes on April 13 and are enrolled for at least 12 credits (Note: some programs that will be starting prior to April 13 ).

Students should log into Bank Mobile now, to confirm that their disbursement preference information is accurate, including postal address, phone number and email address. 

The Following Usual Financial Aid Policies Still Apply:

*Less than Full Time Enrollment:  If you are enrolled - or plan to be enrolled - in less than 12 credits, please contact the financial aid office via email at financialaid@wvc.edu and let the office know how many credits you will be enrolled for, as we do need to adjust for enrollment. 

Complete Withdrawals/Non-Attendance:  If a student does not attend their classes,  or withdraws prior to the start of their classes, they will owe back any financial aid funds that were disbursed to them.

If you have any questions, please contact the financial aid office via email.  Our email address is financialaid@wvc.edu 

 

**Community Foundation Scholarships Available**  
Deadline Date: March 1, 2020.  
The Community Foundation of North Central Washington has opened up their application for the 2020-2021 school year that begins Fall 2020. They offer over 100 scholarships and are a great organization that helps out students from our community pay for tuition and books in some cases. Visit their website at  Community Foundation of NCW for additional information.
Each year, we have scholarships that go un-awarded because no one applied... don't let that be you!

By completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) you will automatically be considered for most federal and state aid and all funds that Wenatchee Valley College offers.

*PHONE & LETTER SCAMS*:  We have recently been made aware of students receiving phone calls and official looking letters asking for personal information (SID, SSN, bank account number, FSA ID, etc.) in relation to their financial aid and student loans.  WVC advises that you NEVER give out your student ID, SSN or bank account information to unsolicited contacts, even if they have other information such as an estimated amount of your student loans.  

*Important Reminder*:   BankMobile Refund Selection Kits will be mailed to you via US postal service.  Neither WVC nor BankMobile will ever initiate a phone call to you to ask for your account information or social security number or to set you up for Direct Deposit.  WVC advises that you NEVER give out your bank account or other personal information over the phone on an unsolicited call.

Apply Now:  To apply for financial aid, complete the FAFSA online. You will need our school code, which is 003801.  For youtube video help, visit How To Fill Out The FAFSA. Remember, you must re-apply each year.
