Students who participate as members of these communities (University of Maryland) have higher retention and graduation rates and report higher satisfaction with their undergraduate experience at Maryland. These positive outcomes result from:
The connections that are made with students who share similar interests
the substantial contact that occurs with individual faculty members outside the classroom

Steps to applying for financial aid for Mountain View College

• Gift aid
Gift aid includes grants and scholarships that you are not required to repay, except as mandated (see grant repayment requirements).

• Work-study
Work-study is an award that must be earned through employment.

• Direct Loans
Direct Loans are low-interest loans for students and parents to help pay for the cost of a student’s education. A loan is money that you borrow and must repay with interest.

If you are ineligible for financial aid, your college may be able to provide:

• Emergency assistance
Emergency assistance consists of short-term tuition and textbook loans from the college that must be repaid.

Financial aid for credit students may be categorized into three types:
Texas Public Education Grants (TPEGs), for tuition only, are available to individuals to take career or occupation-related courses.

You should become completely familiar with the terms and conditions of any financial aid award you accept. If you have questions about a specific award, contact the Financial Aid Office.

Financial Assistance for Continuing Education
Frequently Asked Questions regarding Verification
What is verification?
We are verifying information you put on your FAFSA.

This process is completed online. That means you must check your email often. Through email, you will find out your status, if there are any other documents we need, etc.

If you are selected, your financial aid application will not be processed until Verification is complete.

How will I know if I am selected for Verification?
There are two ways.
. You will get an email from FAFSA that includes your Student Aid Report (SAR). Your SAR will tell you if you have been chosen for Verification.

The colleges of DCCCD will also send you an email from “Student Aid Process” with the subject line “Online Verification Process.”

The Verification email will be sent to the email address you listed on your FAFSA. If you don’t see it in your in box, check your spam.
If your Student Aid Report says you have been chosen for Verification, but you don’t get an email, please call the Financial Aid Call Center at 972-587-2599 or visit your college Financial Aid Office.

If you are a dependent student, your parents will also receive the same email. The email address cannot be the same for the student and parent. In order to correct this, you will need to make the change on your most recent FAFSA application.

How to Complete the Verification Process:
The Verification email will include a blue link. This link is your personal URL (PURL). Click on the link. This will take you to the Verification Web page. Enter the requested information to register.

Create your user name, password and security questions. Be sure to choose things you will easily remember.

If you are a dependent student, the Parent Information Box will appear. Enter the information requested. (Note: You will be asked to enter your parent’s email address. Remember, it must be different than your email address. If your parent does not have an email address, they must get one to complete this process.) Click “Next” to continue. Note: Your parent must complete each step in the process before you can complete your step(s).

You will be asked to complete requirements specific to your FAFSA and information on your tax return.

Verification Worksheet
This worksheet tells us who lives in your home, who is going to college and what kind of income you had last year.

How Financial Aid Disbursement Works
Once you’ve been sent your financial aid award letter, here’s what happens before you receive your money:

You will need to log in to eConnect and accept your award(s). Please be sure to read the terms of your awards and learn about the requirements you must meet to maintain eligibility. These requirements are called Satisfactory Academic Progress standards.

If you haven’t done so already, you will also need to verify your address in eConnect (login required) so you can choose the method you prefer to receive any refund you may be owed through the DCCCD Money Card program.

Next, your award funds are credited to your account, usually 10 days before your first class day for a term. Any tuition you still owe to the college is deducted from these funds.

Your college then verifies the accuracy of award amounts credited to your account. This verification includes confirming your enrollment level and your eligibility to receive payment. Under federal regulations, DCCCD has up to 14 business days to complete this part of the process.

Once verification takes place and your eligibility is confirmed, your funds are released and sent to Higher One for distribution. If you have opted for the “One Account” at Higher One, your funds are available in most cases the same day.

You will receive a notice from DCCCD informing you funds have been sent to Higher One for distribution.

These steps, such as verification of enrollment with your professors, must be completed before you receive your remaining financial aid money.

In addition, if your award(s) include Pell, SEOG or federal loans, your eligibility must be confirmed with the Department of Education before your remaining funds can be released. This process usually takes just 24 to 48 hours and can only be done after your award(s) have been credited to your account.

While it may seem like financial aid is taking longer than it should, your funds will be released before the federally mandated deadlines pass.

What Can You Do to Get Your Money Earlier Next Semester?
The easiest way to ensure your funds are processed as quickly as possible is to stay on top of your paperwork.

Submit your FAFSA as soon as possible — the form for the Fall semester becomes available Jan. 1 of that year (the Fall 2014 application was made available in January 2014). The 2014-2015 school year FAFSA is available now. (You must use Internet Explorer to fill it out online.)

Respond as soon as you get forms requiring input. If you get a request for more information, or a signature, send in your response as soon as possible.

Financial aid isn’t a race, but the sooner you fill out your paperwork and submit it, the better your chances of receiving money. Colleges are only given a certain amount of money every year to distribute to students, and if your paperwork is submitted early, you have a much better chance of being fully funded.

The Student Life Office empowers students to develop life and leadership skills in support of Mountain View College goals for student success, citizenship, celebration of diversity, community partnerships and the promotion of new opportunities. Mountain View College Student Life office is committed to providing co-curricular activities, travel excursions, and leadership programs for students that will contribute to their overall academic experience and foster personal growth.

Service Learning provides an opportunity for students to apply the concepts you are learning in your college courses to a volunteer position with a non-profit, non-religious, and non-political agency and/or to “try out” professional fields you are considering for your future and/or it just sounds like fun!

Service Learning students volunteer a minimum of 15 hours with one agency (40 hours for hospitals) during a semester and attend one mandatory one hour on-campus Reflection Group meeting. Volunteers’ schedules are worked out by the student and the agency. Individual professors may have class related activities for their students to receive extra credit.

Student Code of Conduct
The purpose of policies about student conduct and discipline are to provide guidelines for the educational environment of the College District. This environment views students in a holistic manner, encouraging and inviting them to learn and grow independently. Such an environment presupposes both rights and responsibilities. Free inquiry and expression are essential parts of this freedom to learn, to grow, and to develop. However, this environment also demands appropriate opportunities and conditions in the classroom, on the campus, and in the larger community. Students must exercise these freedoms with responsibility.
