All ADMISSIONS documents, as well as all federal financial aid requirements, must be received and processed before financial aid can pay.

Please allow one-three weeks for processing of awards after final documents are submitted to the financial aid office. Watch your EdNet and GSC email accounts for follow-up information. Be prepared to purchase your textbooks in the event of late processing or if you are not receiving a financial aid refund.

FIRST TIME STUDENT LOAN RECIPIENTS must complete the Master Promissory Note and Entrance Counseling at www.studentloans.gov.

The Financial Aid office is housed in Louis Bennett Hall and is open 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. weekdays. Stop by if you have any questions, or call us at 304-462-4103.

Talk to one of our counselors and get your questions answered, set up a tuition payment plan, or apply for an education loan. We are here to help you figure out how to pay for the most important investment you'll ever make: your education.
