After you have received your award letter from PVCC, the College receives your federal student loans and grants and deposits them into your personal financial aid account that you can review and track through MyPVCC. Please review your account through MyPVCC first before calling the Financial Aid Office to determine if your award has been deposited into your account. Depending on the type of assistance you receive, you may also be sent a check later in the semester to pay for other related expenses.
PVCC automatically applies your awarded aid to the cost of tuition and fees. This shows in your financial aid account. Your financial aid pays tuition and fees upfront for the semester. At this point, you do not have to pay anything further unless your aid does not cover all tuition and fees. You are responsible for tuition and fees not covered by your financial aid package. Payment should be made at the PVCC Cashier's Office, located in room 245 in the Main Building. See Payment Deadlines.
Charging Books to Your Financial Aid Account
You may charge books to your financial aid account at the Bookstore:
- After you receive your financial aid award letter from PVCC.
- About two weeks before classes begin through the second week of classes.
- Sign up for all courses at the beginning of the semester because
- you may not charge book expenses at any other time to your financial aid account.
If Financial Aid Doesn't Cover Your Tuition
If financial aid does not completely cover your tuition expenses and you are unable to pay the balance all at once, you may schedule payments through Nelnet (FACTS Management Company). This is not a loan program. There are no interest or finance charges and there is no credit check. There is an enrollment fee.
Nelnet (FACTS) schedules bank-to-bank transfers for expenses that you have pre-approved at PVCC. Users set up monthly payments from a checking account, savings account or credit card. Money is withdrawn on the 20th of each month and continues until the balance is paid in full.
