What is Financial Aid

Financial aid is made available by federal and state governments and private sources in the form of grants, scholarships, employment, and loans. This assistance makes it possible for students to continue their education beyond high school, even if they and/or their family cannot meet the full cost of the college they choose to attend.

 

 


Tuition & Fees

WLAC remains one of the most affordable college nationwide. To determine a student's financial need, the financial aid office will take into consideration the student's cost of attendance and expected family contribution (see Cost of Attendance table below).

Fees may be paid online via the Student Information System.

NOTE: Fees are are subject to change by the CA Legislature.

For more details on fees, see the college catalog.
