FAQ

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.

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.

Is there a time limit on completing my Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction or an endorsement?

Yes – students have 7 years from when they take their first graduate education class at Doane to complete their degree or endorsement program. After 7 years, the oldest courses will be evaluated for recency and relevance and will most likely have to be repeated in the case of core courses, or replaced by another course for electives.

Is this program for both elementary and secondary teacher certification?

No, this program is only for certification as a secondary teacher in Nebraska in an area that Doane endorses. These areas include the sciences, mathematics, social sciences, English, language arts, business, foreign languages, music, and art. If you wish to teach elementary, the coursework for that program is offered on the School of Arts and Sciences undergraduate campus in Crete.
