Weatherford College is dedicated to the belief that no student wishing to pursue a college education should be denied that opportunity, regardless of financial ability to pay. In determining the need for financial assistance, the Financial Aid Office is guided by its estimate of each student’s actual expenses, the data supplied by the student in the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), and information received from the U.S. Department of Education. Each student who is eligible will be offered a financial aid package containing a combination of grants, scholarships, and/or student employment. FAFSAs are available on the U.S. Department of Education website at https://studentaid.gov. A student cannot be “packaged” for financial aid until his or her financial aid file is complete. A student’s file is not considered complete and cannot be evaluated until the Student Aid Report (SAR) and all other requested documents have been submitted.
Required application and accompanying documents must be submitted no later than June 21 for the fall semester, November 18 for the spring semester, and April 17 for the summer semester in order to guarantee aid is completed before payment deadline. Failure to meet the application deadlines could result in a delay in receiving financial assistance.
