    What's Next?

    Your Financial Aid Award: A financial aid award letter will be sent to you after your financial aid is determined. Incoming freshmen will receive award letters in the mail starting in December. Transfer students will receive award letters in the mail on a rolling basis. Current students will receive award information via email during the summer.

    Adjustments: If you receive private (non-WLC) scholarships, grants, or loans, you are legally required to report those funds to the Office of Financial Aid. In certain cases, federal and state regulations may require an adjustment to your financial aid award. Adjustments may also be made if there are changes in your family's financial situation during the academic year or if your enrollment status changes.
