In addition to standard financial aid and scholarships, career program students are encouraged to check out these additional options.
Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA)
The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act allows certain groups of eligible people, including dislocated/laid off workers, to apply for funding they can use to retrain for in-demand careers. Many of Waubonsee’s credit career programs, along with a few noncredit offerings, serve as training program options.

For qualifying individuals between 17-24 years old, the Waubonsee Works Program provides free tuition and books for a short-term, career-focused certificate at Waubonsee.
