WCTC Student Emergency Funding

WCTC recognizes the impact COVID-19 has had on our community. The College can offer assistance to students who are experiencing hardship due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Your well-being is our top priority.

COVID Impact Grant

If you are a WCTC student who was impacted by COVID-19, you can receive emergency assistance through the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRRSAA). The funding may be used for any emergency expense due to COVID-19 or any expenses related to your cost of attendance at WCTC. Funding may vary based on availability and eligibility.


You must be currently enrolled in the fall 2021 semester at Waukesha County Technical College, taking one or more credits.

How to Receive Funding

If you have completed the FAFSA and are deemed eligible, you will automatically receive a COVID Impact Grant. FAFSA students do not need to apply.

Applications will be reviewed on a first-come, first-served basis each term. Apply below:

Funding Information

WCTC must prioritize students with exceptional need. The Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) requires that students with exceptional need are identified by considering FAFSA completion, Pell Grant eligibility, and self-certification for financial aid disbursement and awarding.

The COVID Impact Grant is available for the fall 2021 semester until December 9, 2021 or until all funds have been exhausted.

Grant Amounts

Pell Students $2,000
Non-Pell Students $1,500
Non-FAFSA Students $1,500

Funding Disbursement

If you are an eligible FAFSA student, funds will automatically be distributed via direct deposit to your bank account (preferred) or by paper check to your home address if you do not have a bank account on file. Receiving a paper check by mail will delay fund disbursement.

If you have an outstanding balance and would like to have funds applied toward your balance, please contact billing@wctc.edu.
