Financial Aid Deadlines to be Aware of!

Welcome back! The summer definitely flew by and here we are again, the Fall Semester. We hope all of you are situated in your classes already and ready to take on the work and challenges ahead.

The DVC Financial Aid Office would like to inform all of you of some crucial dates that MAY affect your financial aid.

September 3rd – If you have not filed a FAFSA online already (www.fafsa.ed.gov), you should submit it before this date to allow for enough time for processing. Submitting a FAFSA after this date may not enable you to meet our October 4th deadline of submitting documents into our office (see below).

September 10th – This is the last day to drop WITHOUT a W! You have up to this time in order to adjust your schedule. The units you have on September 11th will be what’s used to calculate the number of units you are attempting (whether you add more or drop at a later date). Getting Ws on your transcript not only looks bad on your transcript, but it also affects your financial aid status (late start and short-term classes have different drop dates, check with Admissions and Records Office).

October 4th – To ensure the process of financial aid files, including appeals, students will be required to complete and submit ALL necessary documents to the Financial Aid Office no later than Monday, October 4, 2010 to receive payments by the end of the Fall 2010 Semester. Documents received after this date will be processed for retroactive payment, if eligible, in the Spring 2011 Semester.

These are some dates to remember for the fall semester in regards to Financial Aid. Please remember that the Financial Aid Office is taking 8-12 weeks to process paperwork due to reduced staffing and the increase in volume of applicants. Please plan accordingly!

Last day to drop with a W is 4/30!

If you are thinking about dropping a class to avoid getting an F, do so before Friday, April 30th. Receiving a failing grade in your academic transcript will affect your GPA, especially if you are transferring. Remember that receiving a failing grade (D, F, or No Pass) or an incomplete grade (Withdraw or Incomplete) WILL affect your financial aid transcript. Please be mindful of your decisions regarding dropping courses.

If you have any questions, please come in to the Financial Aid Office to see how dropping a course will affect your financial aid.

Drop W Deadline is TOMORROW, 2/19!

If you are thinking about dropping a class, please make sure that you do it before the end of the day tomorrow, Friday, February 19th!

If you drop anytime after tomorrow, you will either receive a W (withdrawal) or an I (incomplete) – both grades you want to stay away from your transcript. Having these grades in your transcript will not only affect your financial aid but also your chances of getting in to the college/university that you may want to transfer to.
