Everyone has questions. We just pulled together a few of the frequently asked ones here for you to search. Let us know if you need any additional assistance. We'd be glad to help.

I'm not planning to return to Doane next semester. Who needs to be informed?

Start with Student Leadership or the Academic Affairs Office.  Either office will assist you in starting this process.

I'm supposed to get a VA kicker. but I haven't yet?

Kickers, or sign up incentives, are paid directly to the veteran/student.  Please contact your Education Services Officer for details.

If I am degree-seeking or working on an added endorsement who is my adviser and how can I contact my adviser?

- Dr. Lyn Forester, the Dean of Graduate Studies in Curriculum & Instruction serves as the adviser for the curriculum and instruction students. You can e-mail her at lyn.forester@doane.edu or call 1-800-333-6263.

- You can also contact Wilma Daddario, the Assistant Dean at wilma.daddario@doane.edu or call 1-888-803-6263, ext. 322.

If I visit the writing center, will I get a good grade on my paper?

Not necessarily.  However, a visit to the Writing Center will improve your writing to some degree.  And several visits to the writing center during your time at Doane College, along with hard work in your courses, will help you improve as a writer.  This should result in better grades on your papers.

If I'm representing someone else during room selection, and their lottery number is higher than mine, can I select my room when I select theirs?

Unfortunately, no.  You will need to wait your turn and select your own room when your lottery number comes up.  Any other way would be unfair to the people ahead of you.

Is my gift tax-deductible?

Yes, your gift is tax-deductible. 

Is my VA money sent to me or Doane?

It depends on the program.  VA checks are sent directly to the student at the current mailing address on record or by direct deposit for chapters 30, 32, 35, 1606, 1607.   Direct deposit is available for all programs except Chapter 35.  You can call toll free 1-877-838-2778 to sign up or change your direct deposit.  The Post-9/11 Bill, Chapter 33, benefits will be sent directly to Doane.   Education benefits are paid in arrears. Please remember that it is your responsibility to satisfy your financial obligation to Doane College.

Is there a place for me to store my items on campus?

There will be limited space in the Student Leadership Office to house items such as books and lunch bags. Student Leadership will not be held responsible for any lost or stolen items.
