The top priority at Waukesha County Technical College is the health and well-being of our students, faculty, staff and the community. WCTC recognizes the impact the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has had on our community. If you have been negatively impacted by the campus disruption due to COVID-19 and have a need in one or more of the following areas, the College may be able to provide financial support.

If you are a WCTC student who has or is eligible to file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and whose courses were disrupted due to the COVID-19 pandemic, you may be eligible to receive a relief grant. Initial priority will be given to students enrolled in the spring 2020 semester.

Due to federal guidelines, the following students are not eligible to request funding:

  • Enrolled in 100 percent online courses before March 13, 2020
  • English as a second language (ESL)
  • Adult basic education
  • Contract training
  • Continuing education
  • Dual Enrollment Academy
