- Communication - My Documents (description of documents needed for verification, status as documents are received and the due date)
- Financial Aid By Term - This is where you can add up all the accepted codes (A) and compare the amount to your bill. Pending (P) or estimated (E) codes means this type of aid needs verified or may need applied for before the A code can be posted. A denied (D) code means you are not eligible for that type of aid. (check with the financial aid office in these cases). All aid is temporary until after the add/drop period in each term
- Financial Aid Status By Year - This is your potential financial aid letter

Financial Aid is based on attendance. If is determined that you did not attend class, or you withdraw from all your courses, your aid may be reduced or canceled, causing you to owe money to the college or the Federal Government.
You should compare the amount of your aid with the cost of tuition and fees. This can be found on WebAdvisor on the MyWestmoreland Portal. Amounts not covered by financial aid must be paid by the payment deadline.
The Pell grant is based on full-time attendance (12+ credits). For 3/4 time (9-11 cr) you will receive 75% of the award; for 1/2 time (6-8 cr) 50% of the award; and for 1/4 time (1-5 cr) 25% of the award.
