Getting financial aid may seem like a confusing process, but it doesn't have to be. TVCC is ready and willing to help you out and simplify the process.
Once you are ready, start your application for financial aid now.
Our school code is: 003221
For your convenience we have created a Financial Aid Checklist to help you through the process.
Watch for deadlines! You must have all of your financial aid documents submitted to the TVCC Financial Aid Office before 5pm on the priority term deadline, in order to ensure processing and on-time delivery of financial aid by tuition due dates. Priority deadlines are set to give the Financial Aid Office the necessary time to review and process aid accurately.
2016-17 Financial Aid Priority Term Deadlines
Summer Quarter - April 13, 2016
Fall Quarter - July 20, 2016
Winter Quarter - October 15, 2016
Spring Quarter - January 15, 2017
Documents will still be accepted after the above dates. However, eligibility may not be determined in enough time to pay tuition and fees prior to the beginning of the term. If an applicant is eligible for aid, the award will be made retroactive. If the priority term deadline is missed, the students MUST be prepared to purchase books and supplies, and set up an installment plan for the tuition and fees according to college tuition deadlines. If out-of-pocket expenses are not reasonable, strong consideration should be given to postponing enrollment until the next quarter, or at such time that finances allow.

3. Payment of Awards:
All financial aid funds will be disbursed to your student account according to Federal regulations and guidelines. Financial aid funds are disbursed to your student account only after your class participation has been confirmed each quarter by your instructors. Disbursements to student accounts occur on the second Thursday of each quarter for students meeting ALL disbursement requirements. Financial aid refunds (if applicable) are made available by the TVCC Business Office on the third Tuesday of each quarter. All institutional charges appear as debits on your student account statement and your financial aid awards will appear as credits to offset any outstanding balances owed to the college.
4. Scholarships and Activity Awards:
The Financial Aid Office records all sources of aid in addition to Federal financial aid but is not responsible for awarding or revoking these funds. Any questions regarding a scholarship, activity award, or tuition waiver should be directed to the agency or department from which the award was made.
5. Repayment of Unearned Financial Aid Funds:
Students who withdraw (officially or unofficially), fail to complete, or simply stop attending any or all of their classes during the first 60 percent of a term may be required to repay a portion of the financial aid received for that quarter. Refunds and repayments are based up on the percentage of the term completed at the time of withdrawal. You are responsible for and agree to pay back any and all overpayment of funds.
6. Standards of Academic Progress:
All students are required to meet TVCC's "Financial Aid & Veteran's Affairs Standards of Academic Progress" in order to receive and maintain eligibility for financial aid funds. Students must meet all standards - General Requirements, GPA Requirements, Completion Rate Requirements, and Maximum Credit Hour Requirements - in order to initially be eligible for and to maintain eligibility for financial aid funding. The standards of eligibility for some scholarships or awards may differ as defined by the agency or department from which the award was made.
In order to receive student loans you must be registered for at least 6 credits.
Your Pell Grant amount will adjust depending on the number of credits you take.
