Types of Financial Aid

Receipt of all types of Financial Aid is contingent on students attending class. 

STATE AND FEDERAL AID

All state programs are subject to changes made by the Texas Legislature, or executive order by the Governor of Texas. Please check with the financial aid office for the latest revisions of all state programs listed here.

TEXAS PUBLIC EDUCATION GRANT (TPEG) (HB688)

The provisions of House Bill 688 allow for grants to be administered to deserving students from funds set aside by Weatherford College. These grants are awarded to students with a demonstrated financial need and do not require repayment. Note: this bill is up for review and possible revision by the Texas legislature.

WORK-STUDY PROGRAM (WS)

WS promotes the part-time employment of students in secretarial, clerical, library service, and other areas. Primarily funded with federal and state funds, WS allows students to gain practical experience in these areas and provides financial assistance to deserving students. Students should apply for WS by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and by contacting the Financial Aid Office.

FEDERAL PELL GRANTS

Weatherford College participates in the Federal Pell Grant program. This is a federally funded grant program that does not require repayment and is awarded to students based on financial need as determined by a federal formula. Application for this program is made by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at www.fafsa.ed.gov

FEDERAL SUPPLEMENTAL EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITY GRANT (FSEOG):

The FSEOG is a grant for undergraduates with exceptional financial need; that is, students with the lowest Expected Family Contributions (EFC’s). Priority is given to students who receive Federal Pell Grants. The amount ranges from $300 to $1000.

TEXAS EDUCATION OPPORTUNITY GRANT (TEOG):

The Texas Educational Opportunity Grant (TEOG), formerly known as TEXAS II grant, is a supplemental grant established by Texas Legislature to assist students in financial need who are Texas residents pursuing a degree or certificate at the community college level. Students who have completed 30 hours or more toward their degree or certificate are not eligible to begin receiving this grant. For more information please contact the Financial Aid Office.

OTHER STATE PROGRAMS

The Texas Legislature has established additional waiver, exemption and grant programs to provide assistance to students who are Texas residents. Approved waiver and/or exemption requests and documentation should be provided to the Financial Aid Office no later than the official census day for the term in which the waiver or exemption is requested. Additional information about these programs is available from the Financial Aid Office or online at www.collegeforalltexans.com.
