Important Financial Aid and Veteran's Benefits Information

Demonstrate Eligibility for Financial Aid. To be eligible for federal and state financial aid, students must submit a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) and meet all eligibility requirements. For more information, contact the Financial Aid Office.

To request use of Veteran's educational benefits, complete the Veteran's Benefits Enrollment (VBE) form in myStudentCenter. Refer to the VBE for your specific requirements regarding the payment plan.

All students who use financial aid or selected Veteran's benefits (Chapters 30, 32, 35, 1606, 1607 and VRAP) to pay for their classes must enroll in the Deferred Payment Plan to hold their classes while their aid is pending. The Deferred Payment Plan will not be available to you until your FAFSA or Veteran's Benefit Enrollment form has been received by the college. (This usually takes several business days from the time you submit the forms.) If you enroll before your forms are received by the college, you will only be allowed to enroll in the standard Installment Payment Plan and a down payment will be required.

No down payment is required for the Deferred Payment Plan, and the plan will only go into effect if you do not receive financial aid or your aid does not cover the full amount of your tuition. If the Deferred plan is required, payments will not begin until after the financial aid census date. (See the Installment Payment Plan web page for details.)
