NVCC strives to assure that no one be denied the opportunity of attending the College for financial reasons. The financial aid program provides a variety of ways for you to get funds for college.

Financial aid counselors at each campus provide information about financial aid programs, application procedures and eligibility.

Jobs are available on campus through a work-study program. If you can show financial need, you may qualify for participation in this program.

Loans are available through the Federal Perkins Student Loan and the Federal Family Educational Loan Programs. If you need a loan, contact the Financial Aid Office for information and a determination of eligibility for a loan.

Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants (SEOG) are federally funded and available in conjunction with other types of financial aid.

The Federal Pell Grant, which is federally funded, requires demonstrated financial need.

The College Scholarship Assistance Programs (CSAP) and Virginia Community College System (VCCS) provide grant awards for students domiciled in Virgin- ia. The program is provided through the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia to needy students attending Virginia colleges at least half-time and who are making satisfactory academic progress.

Applications for financial aid are available from the Financial Aid Office on campus. Application must be made on your home campus and should be made well in advance of the semester for which assistance is needed. Applicants for all aid programs, including loans, must file an approved need analysis application. Completed applications received by March 1, 1994 will receive priority consideration.

The NVCC Student Financial Aid Committee is composed of representatives of the administration, student body, Financial Aid Offices, and faculty as appointed by the president. The Committee reviews and recommends policy on administering financial aid programs.

Some Extended Learning Institute courses may not be included in any calcu- lation used to determine a student's eligibility for any financial aid funds or loan deferments.

Additional information on scholarships, grants, loans, and on-campus employment may be found in the 1994-95 Student Financial Aid Services brochure.
