Helpful Hints and Suggestions

  1. Complete the admission application process as early as possible. Obtaining academic transcripts from institutions you previously attended can take several weeks, so plan accordingly. Remember you will not receive a financial aid award notice until you are accepted for admission.
  2. Create a financial aid file to hold copies of all completed forms.
  3. Accuracy is paramount. Double-check your forms before submitting them. Mistakes can postpone your receipt of aid by eight to ten weeks.
  4. Timeliness is important. If you do not meet deadlines established by the federal and state government and Wilmington College, you may not receive all of the aid for which you are eligible.
If you have questions, need forms, or need assistance contact your Financial Aid Counselor.
