Financial Aid 2013-2014

Please remember to file your 2013-14 FAFSA as early as possible.

Some funds are given out on a first come first serve basis. For the 2012-2013 year these funds were no longer available for students that completed their FAFSA after April 20, 2012 last year.

If you complete steps 1-3 on the Financial Aid Checklist located on our website at www.cvtc.edu/FinancialAidChecklist by May 3, 2013 (the fall term priority date) we can guarantee you will get your award letter by July 26, 2013.

As of the 2012-2013 year signed Federal Tax Returns will no longer be accepted for the verification process.  Students that are selected for verification

  • will need to complete their FAFSA or make a correction to their FAFSA by having the computer automatically link the student and parent(s) IRS tax information
    OR
  • will need to submit theirs and their parent(s) IRS tax transcript to the Financial Aid Office at the time of verification.

The 2013-2014 FAFSA can now be completed on-line at www.fafsa.ed.gov. Three weeks after you (and your parent's) electronically file your 2012 federal tax return with the IRS you should be able to use the function that allows you to retrieve the tax information from the IRS when filling out the FAFSA. We strongly recommend linking your tax information as this action will eliminate the need for you and your parents to submit a federal tax return transcript if you are selected for verification.

To request an IRS Tax Return transcript visit the IRS website at or visit your local IRS Office.

If you just started school in January 2013, you may have completed a FAFSA for the current academic year. You will want to complete a 2013-14 FAFSA after you file your Federal taxes so we can review your aid eligibility for the upcoming year.

Subsidized and Unsubsidized loans for which the first disbursement is made on or after July 1, 2013, have a 6.8% fixed interest rate.
