Students must apply for Federal Student Aid by completing a FAFSA (Free Application For Federal Student Aid). Central Wyoming College uses the information provided by you on your completed FAFSA to award Federal Financial Aid. The FAFSA is FREE for all students, beware of sites on the internet that offer to submit your forms for a fee.
Federal Pell Grant
The Federal Pell Grant is a need-based grant from the federal government available to undergraduate students who have not earned a bachelor's degree. Each student's award amount is determined on the basis of student/family income and cost of attendance. After the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is filed, the Department of Education will send the school notification a student has been processed. Pell awards vary from $400 to $5550.
Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG)
The FSEOG is a federal grant administered by the CWC Office of Financial Aid. A limited amount of funding is available to undergraduates with Pell eligibility on a first come, first served basis and vary in amount from $200 to $800 annually.
Federal College Work-Study Program (FCWS)
The FCWS program provides jobs for students who are eligible for the federally funded program. FCWS gives students an opportunity to earn money to help pay educational expenses. Funding for FCWS placement is limited and determined by matching student qualifications with job descriptions and requirements. Placement is, therefore, not guaranteed. Most of the work-study positions are located on-campus enabling the student to set a work schedule around his/her schedule. There are a limited number of positions available within the community with non-profit organizations. Funds are paid out monthly on the basis of hours worked in the pay period not to exceed 19 hours per week. Students awarded FCWS funds are assisted by the Human Resources Office in locating employment on campus or at an approved site in the community. Awards vary in amount from $750 to $3000 annually.
