Lesson of the day: DON’T PROCRASTINATE!

This is a picture of the line to the Financial Aid Office at DVC today at 9am (our office opened at 9am).

Since Spring Semester, we’ve noted the October 4th deadline to submit documentation to our office for processing for the Fall Semester. To avoid lines like you see in the picture, regardless of whether it’s for Financial Aid or not, give yourself ample time to complete the process.

Financial Aid is a PROCESS. That means that there are multiple steps along the way that require time to complete.
