Quick Facts

Priority Dates

  • Priority Deadline Date for Fall is July 1.
  • Students should renew their FAFSA as soon as tax information is available.  Note:  The FSA ID has replaced the Federal Student Aid PIN and must be used to electronically sign the Federal Student Aid application.

Please take note:

  • Books may be charged at the bookstore about two weeks before the first day of class.
  • Students may check their financial aid at any time by logging on to MYWALLACESELMA.
  • Students who register for classes that do not begin the first day of the regular semester may not be eligible to receive refund balances until the class has met and attendance has been verified.

Pell Grant

  • Students are paid according to an amount of money the federal government determined for their eligibility coupled with the number of credit hours they are taking within their program of study/major.
  • Pell Grant will not pay for courses not required by the program of study/major.
  • Students who withdraw from all classes are not eligible to receive a balance refund check until the Return of Title IV calculation has taken place. The student may be eligible for a post withdrawal disbursement after that calculation has taken place. This process is in the best interest of the student to assure they will only pay back a minimal amount of funds.
  • Pell Grant refunds are disbursed 14 days after classes begin.

Attendance

  • Students who have not attended class are not eligible to receive a Pell Grant refund. Instructors complete attendance verification electronically at designated times during the semester.

PACT

The Financial Aid Office works with families to facilitate Prepaid College Tuition requests.  Listed below are the required administrative procedures to process prepaid benefits:

  • A student submits a copy of his/her current schedule along with their tuition request to the Financial Aid Office.
  • Once the information is received eligibility will be verified and requests will be forwarded to the Cashier for billing and processing.

Most prepaid plans have limited semester hours available; for this reason, contract holders are asked to monitor contract balances. For information regarding your PACT account please visit their website.

If you have PACT, please e-mail jennifer.reynolds@wccs.edu stating that you want to clear your tuition with PACT.  You must put your name (as registered with PACT), WCCS student number on this statement.
