Financial Aid

If you are going to apply for financial aid, the priority deadline for application materials is based on your start term:

Semester Attending VWCC Priority Date
Fall 2020 July 1, 2020
Spring 2021 October 31, 2020
Summer 2021 April 1, 2021

The FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) can be submitted as early as October 1 of the year prior to the year you wish to begin college. Please submit your FAFSA as early as possible and begin checking your Virginia Western email on a regular basis for communication from the Financial Aid Office.  The Financial Aid Office will begin sending emails to financial aid applicants in December.  Please be sure to select the correct aid year for the FAFSA you are submitting.  The aid year is the same as the academic year during which you will be attending Virginia Western and runs fall semester to summer semester.

Students who have submitted all material required by the Financial Aid Office by the priority date will have their financial aid package by the tuition deadline.  Students may apply for financial aid after the priority deadline for an upcoming semester. Material received after the deadline will be processed on a first-come, first-serve basis.
