Financial Aid (FAFSA):

All Worker Retraining students are required to apply and complete a financial aid file - FAFSA for 2022-2023, which is good for summer quarter 2022 through spring quarter 2023. 

It is also time to apply for financial aid (FAFSA) for 2023-2024, which is good for summer quarter 2023 through spring quarter 2024.  You can apply for both years at  

For additional information and how to apply visit Financial Aid Services.

Income Recalculation:

If you have had a significant change to your income you could be eligible for an income recalculation.  You will find the form on the financial aid website. We use the new information to recalculate your eligibility for financial aid. In many cases WR students become eligible for financial aid grants. Before we process a recalculation, you must have a completed financial aid file.  In many cases students who were not originally eligible for regular financial aid become eligible after completing the Income Recalculation process.

Worker Retraining Tuition and Book Assistance:

Worker Retraining tuition and book assistance will be available for spring quarter 2023.  In order to be considered, you must have a completed financial aid file - FAFSA for 2022-2023.  On a case by case we may be able to award more than 2-3 quarters of assistance.  You also need to be following your Academic Plan.  Your plan is a quarter by quarter listing of the classes needed for your degree or certificate.  If you have updates or changes to your plan, please let us know.  If you are receiving financial aid grants you would no longer be eligible for WR grants.  WR grants are meant to be startup funds until other funding becomes available.  

We are also looking to award funds for students who have exhausted their unemployment benefits.  Students who have completed at least 3 quarters toward a degree or two quarters toward your certificate can be considered for these funds.  Please email Gina Certain, if you would like to be on the consideration list.  

Registration/Enrollment - Spring Quarter 2023:

You can register for classes beginning February 16, 2023.  Make sure to check the online schedule for exact registration dates and times as a Worker Retraining student.
