How to Receive Military Funding and Financial Aid

You will need to reach out to the Office of Financial Aid after you receive your billing email notification, and advise us of the benefit type, as well as the potential amount EACH Semester. We may be able to defer the portion covered, if the funds are being released directly to the University on your behalf. Benefits sent directly to the soldier, or family of the soldier, will not be deferred for arrival and payment should be made to WCU by the appropriate due date.

If you have not received financial aid by the start of the semester, please contact our office.
