Winter and Summer Sessions

Winter Session

Financial aid is not available for the winter sessions. Students enrolled for the immediately preceding fall semester may consider:

  • Applying for a fall semester only with a student loan
  • Applying for another loan for the entire year
  • Requesting an increase to an existing loan

Parents may wish to consider applying for a PLUS or Private Education Loan, considering the options above.

Summer Sessions

The summer is considered a "trailer" for packaging and awarding financial aid at WCU. A valid 2016-2017 FAFSA must be available to WCU and students must meet ALL of the eligibility requirements for Federal and State funding. Half time enrollment (6 credits) is required for most financial aid programs. Funding is limited. There are eligibility limits set forth by each program. Students be aware of these limits.

  • Loans: The Summer Aid Aplication (not available at this time) is available only on-line. The Priority Deadline is April 10, 2016-last day to submit is July 1st, 2016. Submission of the application does not guarantee aid for the summer.
  • PA State Grants: PA undergraduate residents may be eligible for a summer state grant if enrolled for at least 6 credits over two summer sessions in a degree program. Apply at, beginning in mid-April.
  • Federal Work Study: Summer work study is available during the summer. Positions will be based on departmental needs and the availability of funding. The Summer Federal Work Study Application is now available: Priority Deadline May 1st. Summer FWS will not appear as anticipated aid on a student's summer bill.
  • TEACH Grant: The Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education (TEACH) Grant Program provides Summer Grants to eligible students.
