Kirtland Community College shall provide the opportunity for students to participate in a variety of federal, state, and institutional financial aid programs. Selection of participants is based on demonstrated need as determined by federal, state, and institutional financial aid guidelines. Student financial aid includes grants, scholarships, student employment and loans.
Institutional scholarships are the only source of financial aid entirely funded by the college. The President’s cabinet, acting upon the recommendations of the scholarship committee, will be responsible for providing an institutional scholarship program which promotes the recruitment and retention of students, as well as assisting students in meeting their demonstrated financial need.
Non-Institutional (external) scholarships are funded by sources outside of the college. Award amounts and student eligibility are determined by the funding source.
The director of financial aid is responsible for authorizing financial assistance to students and is charged with enforcement of all regulations regarding the operation of this student financial aid program.
