Need Emergency Funds?

WCC students can apply for emergency funding through the WCC Emergency Fund Application. Note: the application is closed for Spring quarter and will open again for Summer quarter. If you have urgent need for Spring quarter, limited emergency funding may be available through the Financial Aid Office. Please email the Financial Aid Office to request application materials: finaid@whatcom.edu.

Orca Food Pantry

WCC’s food pantry remains open for students. We are working closely with the office of Student Life to continue providing safe, accessible Orca Food Pantry resources.

In 2017, the Community College Survey of Student Engagement reported that approximately 50% of WCC students had skipped a meal due to lack of money and 36% of students reported that hunger had affected their ability to learn. Financial gifts can be made to the Orca Food Pantry at whatcom.edu/give.
