Finanical Aid FAQs

Financial aid may come from a variety of sources, including scholarships, grants, loans, work-study and outside aid. The following information will answer questions about the most common financial aid topics. For specific questions or concerns regarding your financial aid, please visit our website or contact us.

If you receive financial aid

Your award package has been made available to you via myWofford -> Student -> My Scholarships and Financial Aid. Your admission application along with the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), if completed, shaped the contents of your awards. All accepted financial aid, with the exception of work-study, will be applied toward your direct costs of tuition, fees, room and board. If you wish to decline any aid offered to you, please email our office. To ensure ALL of your financial aid is posted to your bill, make sure you complete ALL of your unsatisfied Financial Aid Requirements by July 1.

Recipients of outside scholarships

Outside scholarships are a great resource for financial aid. In some cases other financial aid may be reduced to prevent an over award with the awarding of an outside scholarship. Should you be awarded any outside scholarships, please send the checks and/or notifications to:

Wofford College

Student employment

Student employment opportunities are funded through both federal and Wofford sources. Unlike grants, loans and scholarships, student employment funding does not post to your student account. You are paid monthly for the wages earned through direct deposit at your banking institution. You are not guaranteed a job. Students must seek out employment through Wofford’s Handshake platform.

Buying books

If your financial aid covers all direct costs each semester and there are excess funds available, you will be able to purchase textbooks with our voucher system. If you are eligible for a book voucher, you will receive an email the week before classes begin. At that time, the Wofford College Bookstore will assist you in purchasing your books for the term with the use of the voucher.
