Students enrolled in DWC graduate and undergraduate programs may apply for the following:
Federal Direct Loan Programs:
Subsidized Federal Direct Loan (undergraduates only) is awarded on the basis of financial need. If you borrow through this program, both interest and repayment are deferred until six months after you either complete the program or are no longer attending school.
Unsubsidized Federal Direct Loan is not a need-based loan and any applicant can qualify as long as the financial aid forms are filed. However, if a student borrows through this loan program, interest will begin to accrue from the time the loan is disbursed. Students will be given the option to begin paying the interest while they are enrolled or they can choose to have the interest capitalized.
Employer Reimbursement Programs:
Employers may sponsor tuition reimbursement programs to encourage employees to continue their education. Students may register for coursework and submit payment simultaneously for resident and online classes. Contact the Financial Services Office at 603.577.6590 for more information.
Federal Work Study Program
The Federal Work Study Program (FWS) is designed to create part-time employment opportunities for students. The program is intended to be beneficial to both the student and employer. All students who qualify for need-based financial assistance are considered; however, work study jobs are not guaranteed for all applicants.
Most employment opportunities offered by this program are on-campus, working for the college. Available jobs are listed on the DWCareers.com website. The Federal Work Study Placement Form authorizes a student to earn a specific dollar amount. Once a student is selected for a job, it is up to the student and his/her supervisor to design a work schedule that fits within his/her allocation.
Employed students are paid on a bi-weekly basis for the hours worked during the previous two weeks. Students in the program typically work 8-10 hours per week.
