To complete the financial clearance process a student should do all of the following steps:
1. Submit payment in full, or submit completed payment plan application and first payment.
2. Submit financial aid verification documents, if applicable.
3. Submit loan request form and master promissory note.
4. If a student has applied for an alternative student loan or PLUS loan, the loan(s) must be guaranteed before being financially cleared for the term. We recommend that loans be applied for at least six weeks before term begins.
We recommend that students complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (DC’s federal code is 003041) as soon as possible after January 1st. Only students who are degree seeking and admitted to the College are eligible for financial aid.
