Frequently Asked Questions

How does the Warrior Pledge funding work?

Warrior Pledge funding is designed to fill the gap. The program covers tuition and fees not covered by state or other financial aid programs.

Does the money have to be paid back?

No. Warrior Pledge is a scholarship program that receives funds provided to the WWCC Foundation from generous donors.

Are current students eligible for the Warrior Pledge?

Students who are new (never attended) to WWCC will have first priority. So will individuals who have previously attended the college, but have been away for at least one year. Current students may also be considered, depending upon special circumstances.

What’s the deadline to complete my application materials?

Funding allows us to continue awarding students throughout the summer, but the priority deadline for Fall 2023 consideration was July 1. Students are considered in the order they submit their materials, so it is best to apply to the college and complete the financial aid application as soon as possible.

Does Warrior Pledge require a separate application or inquiry form?

No. You will automatically be screened for eligibility by applying to the college and having a completed financial aid application on file.

Do I have to apply for FAFSA or WAFSA?

Those who are eligible to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) or Washington Application for State Financial Aid (WASFA) should do so to participate in the Warrior Pledge program. Those who are not eligible to complete the FAFSA and WAFSA should contact the college to learn how they can still participate in the Warrior Pledge program.

How many credits, degrees will the Warrior Pledge cover?

Eligible students will receive Pledge support for up to 110 credit hours towards a credential or any two-year degree offered at WWCC.

You have 10 years to complete your degree from the time you received the Warrior Pledge.

Will Warrior Pledge funding cover 300 or 400 level Bachelor of Applied Science coursework?

Does Warrior Pledge have a GPA requirement?
