It is the mission of the Excelsior Community College Financial Aid Department to aid students and prospective students in their understanding, application, and timely receipt of all eligible financial aid resources they need to reduce the significant barriers the costs of higher education present. Our philosophy is that everyone is deserving of an education and we support this entitlement through education, compassion and respect. A few things you should know:
You must apply for financial aid each academic year.
You must be matriculated (formally accepted) into a financial aid eligible program.
ALL matriculated students may be eligible for some type of financial aid.
The College recognizes that there will be cases where persons may not qualify for financial assistance by agencies of the state or private entities and may be unable to pay the total fees for the year on or before the due date. The College therefore tries to assist these students by offering a payment plan. However, students should seek to avail themselves of all possible external sources of assistance before applying for this facility.
A student requesting part-payment arrangements will be required to enter into a contractual arrangement with the College for the complete payment of the fees.The student must be able to provide evidence that he/she is able to complete payments by the time specified in the contract.
Below is an outline of the procedure for applying for part payment:
Students registering during the first semester must complete payments by November 30 within the same academic year, or before the student is registered for external examinations, whichever is earlier.
Failure to meet the payment deadline may result in any or all of the following:
For further information on the above programmes, students should contact Ms.Carol Finch, Student Financial Aid Officer located at Main Campus. Students who make applications for any of the above schemes must present a letter of commitment from the relevant agency to the Student Affairs Office during the pre-registration process.
