Summer Financial Aid
Students interested in applying for financial aid during the summer term are required to complete the 2021-2022 financial aid application in addition to the 2021-2022 FAFSA. For Summer 2022, all summer school aid will be awarded based on remaining eligibility and on the number of credit hours in which you are enrolled. If you plan to attend any course during the Summer 2022 term, your eligibilty will be based on the current award year (2021-2022) as the last semester of the aid year. Summer is referred to as a trailer semester or the last semester of the academic year.
Aid is available only to admitted, degree-seeking students at WVNCC. Non-degree or Transient students are not eligible for federal aid at WVNCC. Students must be meeting satisfactory academic progress guidelines for federal student aid. Students on Financial Aid warning, appeal, or probation/with an academic plan based on previous academic performance, will not be awarded aid until after spring grades have been posted and Satisfactory Academic Progress evaluated.
