Paying for College | Western Technical College

Investing in Yourself for a Lifetime of Rewards

The goals are worth striving for—a sense of accomplishment when you graduate, a satisfying career doing something you really like, and creating financial security for yourself and your family. Western is known for putting a great education within reach. Learn about scholarships, grants, loans, and work opportunities.  


To ensure aid is processed in a timely manner, your FAFSA should be filed by these dates:

For students beginning in fall: April 15

For students beginning in spring: October 15

For students beginning in summer: February 15


Students and parents will no longer use a PIN (personal identification number) to sign the FAFSA. Instead, a new FSA (Federal Student Aid) ID will be used. Check out the Guide to Creating a FSA ID by clicking Learn More.
