When your tuition and fees are being paid for by another organization or entity, that organization or entity is referred to as a verified source. See below for the types of verified sources, how to use them and how to check their status on your account.
If your verified source cannot be applied to your account by the payment arrangement date, you may want to enroll in the Deferred Payment Plan while you wait for funds to come through. Note that if your verified source(s) does not cover your entire balance, you are responsible for the remainder.

With the submission of a Veterans Enrollment Certification Request (VECR) prior to registering for classes, classes will be held and the funds received from the Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) will be credited to the student's account. The college will not impose a penalty, or require the beneficiary to borrow additional funds to students responsible for paying any balance remaining after benefits have been credited, should benefit eligibility not be covered at 100% level. The VECR is available in mywcc in the Veterans Services page. To see if funds have been applied to your account, log into the Student Account Suite the day after you register. If funds won’t be available by the payment arrangement due date, consider enrolling in the Deferred Payment Plan.
