IV. Policy Statement
It is generally accepted that financial assistance plays an integral role in the admission and retention of students. Inability to meet educational expenses can adversely influence students’ educational goals and their ability to earn secondary education.
The President has implemented a financial aid program which maximizes the opportunity for students to achieve their educational goals regardless of financial resources. To this end the College secures financial assistance funds from available sources. The President reports to the Board of Trustees on the financial aid program annually.
The financial aid program may include but is not limited to:
- Grants and scholarships
- Part-time employment both on and off the campus
- Combinations of all of the above
Federal and State guidelines may disqualify a student from receiving any Student Aid Funds.
