Financial Aid Portal - Navigation

This pages explains the different sections of the Financial Aid Management Portal.

This section contains your biographic information and some basic financial aid data.

  • Student ID = FAM ID: This is not your WVC Student ID. Your FAM ID is your social security number. If you do not have a social security number, your FAM ID is assigned by the WVC financial aid office.

  • Student Name: Last, First: This is your name as it exists in the WVC Financial Aid Management (FAM) system. This should be same as the name on your social security card. If it is not, please contact the financial aid office.

  • Period: The award year of the financial data being viewed.

  • Session: At WVC, our financial aid year goes from Fall through Summer. So "2015 to SUMMER 2016" means that the data showing includes sessions Fall 2015 through Summer 2016.

  • Status for Financial Aid: This is the status initially assigned in FAM due to information on your FAFSA, WASFA, or scholarship information.

  • Estimated Cost of Attendance: This amount is based on your assigned budget and your enrollment level for each quarter. This will adjust up and down dependent on your enrollment, or a change to your assigned budget.

  • Expected Family Contribution (EFC): This amount is populated from your FAFSA or WASFA. Students that do not have a FAFSA or WASFA loaded in FAM for the award year will have a $0.00 for the EFC.

  • Student Need: Your Cost of Attendance minus your EFC equals your Need.

  • Academic Status for Financial Aid: This function is not enabled. You can check your academic status by going to the WVC Kiosk. If your financial aid awards are closed due to not meeting the terms of our Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy, you will receive a letter in your WVC student email account.
