Section 23-7.4 of the Code of Virginia, effective July 1, 1984, requires all persons applying for admission to a public college or university in Virginia and desiring to pay in-state tuition rates to complete an application for Virginia in-state tuition rates.

In-state tuition rates are available for students in the following West Virginia counties: Greenbrier, Mercer, Monroe, Pocahontas, and Summers.  For more information, please review the VCCS Reciprocity Agreement and contact Mary Johnson at (276) 223-4785 for in-state tuition verification.

Domicile Determination Form


Tuition rates are established annually by the State Board for Community Colleges and published with the semester schedule. Current rates can be verified by contacting the Admissions and Records Office. Payment of tuition enables students to obtain student identification cards and makes them eligible to use the library, bookstore, student lounge, and other facilities of the college. Tuition may be paid by cash, check or credit card.

Payment Options

Your registration is not complete until the Business Office has processed your tuition payment. If you do not pay your tuition by the appropriate deadline, your classes will be deleted and you will need to re-register.

If you have completed and submitted your FAFSA online and are awaiting initial Financial Aid approval, you are not protected from the enrollment cancellation process. You will need to pay by the deadline established or enroll in a tuition payment plan.

You may choose from the one of the following methods to pay your tuition. Partial payments will not be accepted.


All (in-person or online) credit/debit card transactions will be assessed a service fee by Nelnet Business Solutions.  To avoid a service fee charge when paying online, you will need to select the ACH payment option.  There is no fee charged when you elect this option.  Once you select the ACH option, you will be asked to enter in your bank account information.  Please note that if you use your debit card there will be a service fee added.

Refund Policy

It is the student’s responsibility to know the refund dates, which are published in the Academic Calendar.  Students are eligible for a full refund of tuition for credit hours of course(s) dropped on or before the last day to drop with a refund – as listed in the Academic Calendar.  Refunds will not be authorized after the refund dates.

Students may choose to receive their refund by Direct Deposit by logging into their Student Information System (SIS), going into their "My Student Information" tile, and then clicking "Manage Refunds" under the Finances section of their Student Center.

The options for receiving your refund are:

  • Direct Deposit (ACH) – Funds are usually available within 4-5 business days after refunds are processed in SIS.
  • Physical Check – If Direct Deposit hasn't been selected the student will receive a physical check by default.  They will receive the check within 10-14 business days.

 Important information regarding the mailing of refund checks

Refund checks are automatically generated by the SIS system and are dependent up on an up-to-date student address.  Students should update their address in the SIS system whenever they relocate or change their address.  Address changes may be made by calling the Admissions Office or by accessing My WCC.  Students who do not have an up-to-date address or are missing address information in their student account will not receive refund checks.

Directions for Enrolling or Managing Refunds with Nelnet

Refund Eligibility

Students are eligible for a refund for credit hours dropped during the “drop” period. To be eligible, a student must complete and process an official drop form during this period.

The college publishes in each semester’s class schedule the dates during which a student may be eligible for tuition refunds. Refunds are automatically processed when a scheduled class must be cancelled. No refunds will be considered after the announced date unless the student can document unusual or extenuating circumstances, or in case of an administrative error by the college. Before any consideration can be made, the student must appeal to the Vice President of Instruction and Student Development, and then to the Vice President of Finance and Administration.

Official drop forms must be turned in to the Admissions and Records Office in person or by the student’s authorized representative. Financial aid students must also bring the drop form to the Financial Aid Office for signature. The official drop date for a student is the date that the drop form is received by the Admissions and Records Office.

All entering and returning students receiving Title IV financial aid are subject to the Title IV Return of Funds Policy. A copy of the policy is mailed to each student with the financial aid award letter. Copies of the policies and additional information concerning the policies are available in the Financial Aid Office, Bland Hall, Room 113A. Information about financial aid at WCC is available via the college’s Internet website.

Refunds, Credits, and Reinstatement Policy as a Result of a National Emergency

Tuition and Required Fees

In the event, a student is ordered to active duty (for reservists) or mobilized (active military) as described in the Code of Virginia, Section 23-9.6:2, and he/she requests to be withdrawn from the college after the last day to drop and receive a refund, the student may elect either to be deleted from the registration file and be awarded a full refund or to be administratively withdrawn with no refund and assigned a grade of “W.”

The college shall provide, at the option of the student, for such refunds to be retained and to be applicable to tuition and fees charged in the semester or term in which the student returns to study.

Academic Credits and Grades

Students who are subject to conditions described in Code of Virginia, Section 23-9.6:2, should have the opportunity to receive an incomplete grade (“I”) until released from active duty (for reservists) or mobilization (for active duty personnel). All course requirements shall be completed within one year from the date of release from active duty or mobilization.

Students may be given the option of taking their examinations prior to regularly scheduled times.

Careful consideration should be given and special options are advised for students who receive student financial aid or Veterans Administration benefits.


Students who are called to active duty or are mobilized shall be assured a reasonable opportunity to be reinstated in the same programs of study without having to reapply for admission if they return to the college within one year of completing service required as a result of the national emergency.

Students who are separated from the college, under conditions in Code of Virginia, Section 23-9.6:2, shall be required to apply for readmission if they do not enroll within one year from the release from active duty (for reservists) or return from mobilization (active military).

The G3 Program is Designed to Change Lives

On July 1, 2021, Wytheville Community College launched a training and education program for students with a family income of less than $100,000* to help prepare them for good careers and open jobs in Virginia. 

These programs are designed to fit around the busy schedules of working students. Each program has three levels that build on each other. After each level, you earn a certification that can lead to a job. This means students can take breaks in training without losing progress along the way to an associate degree.

The financial assistance for this program is “last dollar,” which covers any remaining tuition or fees after other grants and scholarships are spent.

*If you are interested in a program that is not listed, there may be other funding available to help you pay for classes and training.
