Applying for Financial Aid

Once you have submitted an application to WITCC and registered in an eligible program, you can apply for financial aid. There are several categories of aid so you'll want to be sure to apply for everything you are eligible for to get what you need to attend WITCC.

  1. Fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) any time after January 1 for classes starting fall semester. WITCC's Federal School Code is 004590.
  2. Scholarships are available due to the generous gifts of individuals, foundations, organizations and businesses. Once you have your MyWIT account information, you can log in at and apply for a scholarship. If you have any questions or need assistance, please feel free to contact us.
  3. Work study is another way to receive financial aid. There are a number of work study jobs in the college available to students. They vary in duties and responsibilities and are flexible to work with your class schedule. The number of hours you can work will depend on your eligibility, so contact the financial aid office for more information.
