WWCC offers a variety of scholarships which require specific minimum ACT scores, such as 27 for the college’s Superior Student Scholarship. Western’s Hathaway Scholarships require an ACT composite of at least 25 for the Honors Award, 21 for the Performance Award, 19 for the Opportunity Award and 17 (or Workkeys score of 12) for the Career Award. Many other WWCC scholarships are also available. “Higher ACT scores can help students earn higher scholarship awards,” said Jocelyn Moore, WWCC GEAR UP representative in Sublette County.
