Kirtland Community College shall provide the opportunity for students to participate in a variety of federal, state, and institutional financial aid programs. Kirtland is committed to a consistent and equitable approach to awarding federal, state, institutional, and private need-based financial aid. 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 that promotes the recruitment and retention of students and assists 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 administering financial assistance to students and ensuring equality and consistency in delivering funds to students while complying with Federal, State, and Institutional regulations and guidelines.
