Fall Tuition Payment Plans Available Soon!

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

FINANCIAL AID GUARANTEE PRIORITY DATE JUNE 22

FALL 2012 STUDENTS – Guaranteed Priority Date for Financial Aid  applications for the fall 2012 semester (2012-2013 academic year) is JUNE 22. Your application date is a critical factor in receiving financial aid.

Please submit your financial aid application materials as early as possible. Students who have submitted all material required by the Financial Aid Office by the guarantee priority date will have their financial aid packaged by the tuition deadline.

Material received after the deadline will be processed on a first-come, first-serve basis. However, even if you are able to receive support, it likely will be provided on a retroactive basis after you already have enrolled in and paid for your courses. Be sure you are checking your student email and the Student Information System on MyVWCC regularly so that you may respond quickly if additional information is needed.
