Financial Aid Information

It is FREE to apply for financial aid.  

If you have any questions or concerns – call the financial aid office at any college.  DCB has been very helpful when I have questions.  Valerie Heilman is the financial aid director there.


It is important to complete as soon as possible.  They will now use past tax information so you do not have to have your 2016 taxes completed.  This is where you will go to fill out the FAFSA in order to get financial aid

  • Loans
  • Grants  This is a great resource that explains what types of financial aid that is available — and how to apply  The Bank of ND’s College Planning Center

  • Facts about the FAFSA
  • Parents Guide to Completing the FAFSA
  • Understanding financial Aid
