Determining eligibility

To determine your eligibility for financial aid, you must complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form. Submit this application to the financial aid associate. The financial aid associate determines the types and amount of financial aid available to you. Financial aid funds are contingent upon your ability to meet the school’s academic standards.

Important information for students receiving Veterans Affairs (VA) benefits

Any student who receives VA benefits must enroll in courses approved for training of veterans. These students must comply with current VA regulations and school policies. VA students who transfer to Dawn must have a new enrollment form completed and submitted to the VA with credit established according to VA policy. The VA will then approve the course and issue an award letter acknowledging the student’s enrollment in the approved course. A VA student’s attendance must comply with VA policy requirements.
