Fall Tuition Payment Plans – Sign Up Begins July 2nd

To help meet educational expenses, Virginia Western Community College is pleased to participate in Nelnet’s tuition payment plan.  For a non-refundable fee of $25.00, Nelnet allows monthly, interest-free tuition payments. The earlier students enroll the more payment options they may have. The payment plan for fall 2012 will begin on July 2, 2012. 

If a payment plan is not established or if tuition is not paid by August 2, students who registered early for classes will be dropped and will need to repeat the registration process. Financial Aid students are protected from enrollment cancellation up to the amount of their Financial Aid award. Financial Aid students should pay any differences between their total award and the amount due to prevent enrollment cancellation.

Payment plan sign-up instructions and deadlines will be posted on the Student Bulletin, Facebook, Twitter, www.virginiawestern.edu and on the VWtvs located across campus.

Step by step directions on how to enroll in a payment plan are available at http://www.virginiawestern.edu/studenthelp/student/tuitionpaymentplan.php

FAFSA HELP

  • Complete your federal tax returns early - Use data from completed tax returns when possible.
  • Read the Instructions - You will find the application much easier to complete after reading the instructions.
  • VWCC's Title IV Code is 003760. For the processing center this is as important as your social security number. If you do not list VWCC's code to receive your FAFSA information, we cannot process any financial aid for you.
  • If you were selected for verification and have misplaced the Verification Worksheet that we emailed to you, you may print another copy by clicking here. Please complete the worksheet and return it to us with the appropriate tax forms.
  • If you have misplaced your tax return and would like to request a transcript summary from the IRS, you may do so by calling 1-800-829-1040. Beginning with the 2012-13 school year, only the tax return transcript summary from the IRS website will be accepted. Copies of tax returns will no longer be acceptable.
  • REMEMBER - Your Financial Aid package is not complete until all requested paperwork has been received in the Financial Aid Office. Please check your Virginia Western email regularly for important Financial Aid reminders or updates.
