ASSESSMENT OF PRIOR LEARNING
We know that as an adult you already have a wealth of experience and learning. It is possible that some of your prior learning experiences can be applied towards credits for your college degree. Credit is awarded to students who can demonstrate that the learning and skills they acquired from work, non-classroom study, etc. are equivalent to the learning outcomes expected for equivalent courses at the College. In addition to credit awarded for courses transferred from other institutions, students may earn credit through challenge examinations, military training, portfolio evaluation of experiential learning and non-collegiate based professional training. This credit may reduce the time required to complete a degree. So, why not give yourself a little credit? You deserve it! Make a point to contact our Associate Director of Admissions, Monica Snyder, in the HARCO Building.

USING MILITARY TRAINING EXPERIENCE

Active duty personnel or discharged veterans may be able to use military training to gain college credit. You could qualify for up to 30 hours or more of college credit towards a degree. Financial aid is available for qualified students. Contact Monica Snyder.

MAKING PAYMENT

College policy requires all tuition and fees to be paid prior to the first day of each semester, term or class with a delayed start. Students registering on or after the last day to pay for early registration, including those students adding classes, must make payment arrangements at the time of registration. Registration will be considered incomplete until full payment is received and students will not be permitted to attend classes until registration is completed. Students who have a bona fide third party agency paying their tuition, with authorization provided in writing; who have a late financial aid disbursement; or who participate in the Academic Management Services Monthly Payment Plan will not be required to pay tuition and fees at the time of registration. Financial Aid students who have completed the Financial Aid Process and have an award amount that is equal to or greater than required tuition may have their accounts credited at the time of registration, provided that a completed Eastern deferment form is on file. Students who have an award amount that covers only a portion of tuition and any book costs will be required to pay the balance due within three working days of registration. Eastern accepts personal checks, money orders, or credit cards (VISA and MasterCard). Payment can be made in person at the HARCO Complex during business hours, by mailing a check or money order or by phone 1-877-982-2322 with an approved credit card.

PAYMENT PLANS

For students who prefer to pay their tuition over a period of time rather than all at one time, Academic Management Services (AMS) offers an interest free monthly payment option.
For additional information contact the College at 1-877-982-2322; or AMS directly at 1-800-635-0120.

FINANCIAL AID AT EASTERN
The college holds regularly-scheduled Financial Aid Workshops together with Placement Workshops. See above.

Who Qualifies for Financial Aid?
Qualifying for some type of financial aid to assist with college costs is easier than ever before. Whether it be a grant, a student loan or scholarship, funds are available through federal, state and private sources. Students wishing to renew their funds beyond the first semester must maintain Standards of Progress (specific guidelines are published in the catalog).

What Can Financial Aid Pay For?
Based on an individual’s aid, the following items can be completely or partially covered:

  • Tuition and fees
  • Textbooks
  • Transportation costs (i.e. gas, car repairs)
  • Daycare expenses
  • Living expenses

What Types of Aid Does Eastern Have?

  • Federal Pell Grants
  • Federal Stafford Loan Program (both subsidized and unsubsidized loans)
  • WV Higher Education Grant Program
  • HEAPS (Higher Education Adult Part-Time Student Grant)* for WV residents
  • Scholarships*
  • Veterans Benefits (Including National Guard)
  • Vocational Rehabilitation Benefits

*Qualifications vary by scholarship.

Must I Be a Full-Time Student For Aid?
No. Most funds require that a student be registered for at least six credit hours of classes a semester to receive financial aid. Federal Pell Grants may be available for as little as one class.

How Do I Apply?

  1. Complete a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) form.
    The Title IV code to use on the FAFSA is 003816. Forms are available on the web at www.fafsa.ed.gov. (Eastern is utilizing Southern West Virginia Community & Technical College’s FAFSA code number for financial aid purposes.)**
  2. Receive an award letter notifying you of your aid award for each semester (Students generally receive only one award letter each year unless there is a required adjustment to the initial amount awarded.)
  3. REGISTER FOR CLASSES.
  4. To receive your funds, make certain your financial aid file is complete. You cannot receive funds until it is.

**To complete verification, it may be necessary to supply the Financial Aid Office with additional paperwork, such as copies of tax returns, W-2’s, etc.

Funds will be applied to your tuition account beginning at the end of the first week of classes each semester. Students receiving aid in excess of tuition and fees will receive a reimbursement check from the college. If you have previously attended any college or university, you must contact those schools and request an official academic transcript be sent to Eastern. Please issue the transcript to:
SWVCTC, (Eastern Campus),
1929 State Road 55,
Moorefield, WV 26836.

Where Can I Get Help?

  • Filling out forms
  • Checking your forms before they are sent
  • Understanding your Award Notification or Revised Award Notification

Contact the Financial Aid Office at the HARCO Complex: 877-982-2322.

You Need To Know

  • Any adjustment to your class schedule (adding, dropping, withdrawal from any or all classes) will affect your financial aid. A complete Financial Aid File is necessary to hold your class registration.
  • Financial Aid Standards of Progress must be maintained to continue to receive financial aid. (See standards printed in the college catalog.)
  • Financial Aid students who totally withdraw will have their aid adjusted according to the Federal Return of Title IV Funds Policy.

Return Of Title IV Funds
This policy only impacts students who withdraw from the College prior to completing 60% of a semester.
Financial aid is awarded based on the assumption a student will complete the semester in which it was awarded. Therefore, Title IV guidelines (federal regulations) dictate financial aid eligibility (including Pell grant, Supplemental Education Opportunity grant, Stafford & PLUS loans) has to be recalculated for students who completely withdraw, drop out, are dismissed, or take an approved leave of absence prior to completing 60% of a semester.

The College is required to recalculate the amount of federal aid a student has “earned” based on the following formula:
Percent earned = Number of days completed up to the withdrawal date divided by total days in the semester.

In the event a student has received a refund of Title IV aid, the student is responsible for returning the unearned portion to the appropriate Title IV program. This represents a significant change in the federal regulations governing refunds.
The College must return Title IV funds to the programs from which the student received aid in the following order, up to the net amount disbursed from each source:

  1. Unsubsidized Federal Stafford Loan
  2. Federal Stafford Loans
  3. Federal PLUS Loans
  4. Federal Pell Grant
  5. Academic Competitiveness Grant
  6. FSEOG

A student who owes a refund or repayment to any Title IV program is not eligible for continued participation in Title IV programs at any school(s) until repayment has been made.

In addition to the Main Campus (HARCO Complex), Regional Centers are located throughout the service area. These Regional Centers are operated as distance learning classrooms linked with an interactive audio, video and data telecommunications system. This system permits classes to originate at any location, enabling the instructor to maintain simultaneous two-way audio and video contact with students. This allows the College to provide more course offerings to all regional centers, to better utilize its instructional resources and most importantly increase educational opportunities throughout its district.

East Hardy Regional Center
Directions: East Hardy High School. From the intersection of WV 55 and WV 259 in Baker, follow old WV 55 towards Moorefield.

ADD/DROP POLICY

Students wishing to add or drop a course must:

  1. Talk to your advisor or the counselor prior to making any schedule changes.
  2. Review the information regarding schedule changes and the impact on financial aid if you are a financial aid student. (Please review “You Need to Know” and “Return of Title IV Funds” sections. Then speak with a financial aid representative.)
  3. Obtain the instructor’s signature if you are adding a course after the first week of class.
  4. Obtain the Dean for Academic Services’ signature if you are adding a class during the second week of class or later. (The Dean’s signature, in addition to the instructor’s signature, is required to process the schedule change during the second week of classes.)
  5. Complete a Drop/Add Slip when dropping or adding a class.
  6. Changes in registration/schedule must be submitted in writing. Failing to do so can impact grades, financial aid, veterans’ benefits or other support services. Failing to follow appropriate processes for dropping courses may lead to loss of financial aid or having to pay assessed tuition and fees. You are responsible for verifying that the written documentation you submit accurately reflects the intended change(s) in your schedule.

[Note: It is strongly recommended that you talk with your instructor(s) prior to dropping a course(s). In order to insure you will receive a “W” (withdrawal), you must fill out a Drop Slip; otherwise you will receive a failing grade. Do not assume that dropping a course is your only option if you are having difficulty with meeting course requirements. Your instructor may be able to recommend a plan for successful course completion. By meeting with your instructor(s), you can explore possible course completion options. ]

Health Risks: Substance abuse and drug dependency are problems of staggering proportions in our society today. They are the leading cause of preventable illness, disability, and death in the U.S. and are estimated to afflict 25.5 million Americans. While alcoholism may develop in anyone, it tends to first appear between the ages of 20 and 40 and is more prevalent in persons with a family history of alcoholism. The number increases dramatically when one considers the harm done to the families of substance abusers as well as those injured or killed by intoxicated drivers or in drug-related work accidents. Alcohol abuse is often characterized by one of three different patterns: (1) regular and daily use, (2) drinking large amounts of alcohol at specific or irregular intervals, or (3) periods of sobriety interspersed by periods of heavy drinking. The disorder is progressive and can be fatal. If you recognize any tendencies toward alcohol abuse, please seek help as outlined below.

Narcotics: (including opium, morphine, codeine, heroin, and others) – physical addiction, loss of awareness, respiratory restriction, and possible death.

Depressants: (including barbiturates, Quaaludes, and others) – slurred speech, disorientation, shallow respiration, coma likely with overdose.

Stimulants: (including cocaine, amphetamines, and others) – increased heart rate and blood pressure, possibly leading to death, increased excitation, loss of appetite.

Hallucinogens: (including LSD, “mushrooms”, PCP, mescaline, and others) – illusions and hallucinations, poor perception of time and distance, psychotic and unpredictable behavior, often leading to injury and arrest. Symptoms may reappear some time after use.

Cannabis: (marijuana, hashish, THC, and others) – Unrealistic euphoria, diminished inhibitions, disoriented behavior, diminished motivation, increased pulse.

Counseling and Assistance: Assistance and information concerning substance abuse and its treatment may be obtained from the counselor’s office at the college campus. Also available to employees, students, and others are services from the following agencies: Potomac Highlands Guild, Inc. 1-800-545-HELP Appalachian Community Mental Health (Hardy, Grant, Hampshire, Mineral and Pendleton) 1-888-357-3232 or 304-478-2764 (Tucker County)
