Institutional Scholarship Applications Available Now
We will once again select recipients for our institutional scholarships in January. All currently enrolled students are eligible to apply. You can pick up an application from the Financial Aid Office or from the display areas by the Financial Aid Office or the Financial Aid Specialist Office. Completed applications must be submitted to the Financial Aid Office before December 2, 2013.
Applications to Recalculate Financial Aid Eligibility Available After November 1
If your family has experienced a decrease in income in 2013, you may wish to contact the financial aid office to see if you would benefit from a recalculation of your financial aid eligibility. Applications will be available from the Financial Aid Office after November 1 and through April 2014.
American Legion Auxiliary Scholarship Applications Available
Applications for the American Legion Auxiliary Past Presidents' Parley Nursing Grant are available from the wall displays outside the offices of Mary Daniel and Sandra Timple. One scholarship will be awarded during Spring semester and all currently enrolled students are eligible to apply. All applications need to be submitted to the Financial Aid office by November 15, 2013. If related to a veteran, please indicate it on the application.
2014-2015 FAFSA Available Online After Jan. 1, 2014
If you wish to receive financial aid for the 2014-2015 academic year, you must complete the FAFSA online. You can complete the application any time after Jan. 1, 2014, but we recommend you wait until after your 2013 taxes have been completed so you can take advantage of the IRS tax Retrieval Tool that will automatically fill in your income information. Since the 2014 summer semester is part of the 2014-2015 award year, try to complete your FAFSA before March 1 so your financial aid will be available in May at the start of the semester. Note: You must complete the FAFSA each year to continue to receive any federal student aid funds including grants and student loans.
Our school code is 003114.

The 1098-T statement contains information about your enrollment, scholarships and tuition charges for 2013. The Registrar/Bursar will distribute these forms prior to January 31, 2014. You or your parents can use the information on the 1098 T form to determine if you qualify for the higher education deductions or credits when preparing your 2013 tax return. So, be sure to save this information, or give it to the person who claims you on their tax return (if you don't claim yourself).
