Financial Aid Federal Shopping Sheet

The Financial Aid Federal Shopping Sheet is a consumer tool that Wallace Community College provides to notify students about their cost to attend the College. It is a standardized form that is designed to simplify the information that students receive about costs and financial aid. The shopping sheet generates figures that are estimates only and all tuition rates and fees are subject to change without notice. 
  • Wallace Community College’s standard allowance for some expenses may not match your actual costs. Additionally, the shopping sheet does not include any estimates for personal expenses or travel as these expenses may vary greatly based upon personal choices.
  • The shopping sheet also does not include some fees that are course-specific (e.g., lab fees, educational materials, art supplies, etc.).

All amounts shown on the shopping sheet or in other publications and/or websites represent tuition and fees as currently approved by the College. However, Wallace Community College reserves the right to modify tuition and fees without prior notice and to make such modifications applicable to currently enrolled and prospective students. Students are responsible for all charges billed by the College. 
The estimates included in the shopping sheet are not binding to the Secretary of Education, Wallace Community College, the Alabama Community College System or the State of Alabama.
