Financial Aid

The Office of Financial Aid & Veterans Affairs' primary function is to assist students with obtaining financial resources to support their educational goals, while remaining compliant with the Federal, State and institutional rules in which we operate.  Our customer service philosophy is based on respect and dignity of individuals; protecting their privacy; and ensuring confidentiality of their student records, financial statements and personal challenges. We consistently apply all federal, state and institutional policies without discriminating on the basis of race, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, disability, age, or economic status.

We are advocates of education and encourage students to be faithful to their desire for growth by encouraging critical thinking and responsible financial decisions. The Office of Financial Aid and Veterans Affairs promotes professional and personal development of its employees. We are lifelong learners who respect diverse viewpoints and promote the freedom to express ideas and opinions - seeking solutions to every challenge. We strive to provide the best service that supports the goals of Virginia Western Community College.
