WIA funding is the final funding source after HOPE, other scholarship sources, or grants (such as SEOG, LEAP, or Pell). WIA covers tuition, required fees, books, approved program supplies, tools, transportation, child care expenses (12 years or younger and verification of paid care required) not covered by other forms of aid. Required training supplies, tools, and other program requirements must be purchased by the student and signed receipts for reimbursement must be submitted within a specified time frame.
WIA training is contingent on the availability of funds.
