QUALITY ASSURANCE PROGRAM
Participation in this program, which is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Education, provides the opportunity for the Student Financial Aid Office to focus on improvements in monitoring federal compliance while enhancing service delivery. The program is an implementation of the Total Quality Management philosophy which, in part, emphasizes service delivery and consumer satisfaction. The goal of the project is to improve the equality and fairness in awarding federal aid.
Short-term loans, administered by the Bursar’s Office, provide enrolled students with loans up to a maximum of $500. Short-term loans must be repaid (usually within 30 days). Specific enrollment, grade point average and student account status criteria are required in order to qualify for a short-term loan.

All veterans/reservists are required to complete the necessary Veterans Administration forms to obtain educational benefits and must complete an enrollment certification at the beginning of each semester. The administrative marks AU, NR and Z are not accepted by the VA for educational benefits. Veterans must be enrolled in a degree program in order to receive benefits.
