Financial Aid / Scholarships

  • Download the scholarship form, or you may request one by mail by calling (309) 677-3900.
  • Scholarship applications cannot be accepted via online registration. A registration form must be completed and mailed in or dropped off.
  • Due to limited resources, WOW may not be able to grant every scholarship request.

Student Behavior

  • WOW believes students learn best in an atmosphere of respect for the teacher and each other. Students who choose to behave in ways that interfere with other students’ opportunities to learn, and/or the instructors’ opportunities to teach, forfeit their own opportunity to participate in WOW. We reserve the right to dismiss students from class for such reasons. In these cases, no refunds will be given. Family support and cooperation with this matter is appreciated.
