Welcome to Financial Aid

​Welcome to the Financial Aid Office web site. The Financial Aid Office staff is here to assist you with questions regarding the student financial aid process. 



New and perspective financial aid students, we are currently moving into a new system and are experiencing delays in going 'Live' for 2017-2018. If you want to check on your status, please come in to our office and we can confirm if we have received your 2017-2018 FAFSA. However, at this time we will not be able to accept documents for 2017-2018 until we are 'Live' with our new system.

We deeply apologize for the delay and inconvenience this is causing but rest assured we are working hard and quickly as possible to create a better and more improved financial aid experience for our students.

Thank you for patience and understanding.

Important Notice:

Return of Title IV Policy

Federal aid recipients who withdraw or are dropped from all classes by the instructor are subject to new regulations regarding the Return of Title IV funds.  Students who withdraw or are dropped from all classes prior to completing more than 60% of the enrollment period are subject to these rules.  Based on the date of the complete withdrawal or drop, the Financial Aid Office will determine the amount, if any, of "unearned" federal financial aid received by the student. 

Board of Governors (BOG) Fee Waiver

The Board of Governors (BOG) Fee Waiver waives your enrollment fees.  It will not pay for the following things such as:

  • Health fee
  • Parking permit
  • College Service fee
  • Materials fee

Family Education Rights & Privacy Act (FERPA)

Student information can only be released to that student unless an Information Release Authorization form is on file documenting additional individuals.
