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.

How can I help you help my students?

Tell your students about us and encourage them to visit early and often.  Better yet, invite us to visit your class, or arrange for your class to visit the Writing Center.  We are always happy to introduce and explain what we do and why.  You might also refer your students to the Writing Center's web page (www.doane.edu/wc).  It explains in detail how we can help them improve as writers.  In addition, it provides links to several online writing and style guides.

How can I schedule an appointment in the Writing Center?

We schedule appointments on the hour.  To reserve a spot, call (number 826.6727) or, even better, visit the Writing Center.  If you call and miss us during normal consulting hours please leave a message, and we'll get back to you as soon as possible.  Please note that your appointment may be cancelled if you are more than 10 minutes late.

How do I get my grades?

Grades are posted on WebAdviser.  Grade reports are not mailed.

How do I get my VA benefits started?

First you need to complete an application.  An electronic form with complete directions is online at VONAPP.  If you are claiming education benefits as a dependent of a veteran, or if you have previously used VA education benefits, you can also use VONAPP. 


Veterans should provide member copy # 4 of the DD Form 214. Reservists/National Guard soldiers should obtain a Notice of Basic Eligibility (NOBE) from your unit administrative official.  These forms also should be turned into your campus VA representative.


You can apply by completing VA Form 28-1900,Disabled Veterans Application for Vocational Rehabilitation.  A veteran who is eligible for an evaluation under Chapter 31 must complete the VA Form 28-8832,Application for Vocational Educational Counseling and meet with a Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor (VRC). If the VRC determines that an employment handicap exists as a result of a service-connected disability, the veteran is found entitled to services. The VRC and the veteran will then continue counseling to select a track of services and jointly develop a plan to address the rehabilitation, employment, and educational needs of the veteran.

How do I know what I have to pay?

Students applying for federal student aid must complete a Doane College Financial Aid application and the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Students should include Doane as one of the colleges they plan to attend. Our title IV code is 002544.


Information reported on the FAFSA is used to determine the amount of money your family should reasonably expect to contribute toward the cost of your education. Most of this information is taken from tax returns. You should plan to complete your federal tax returns as early as possible.


Since eligibility for financial aid is determined on an individual basis, it is impossible to make a blanket statement about eligibility. Each situation is different.


Your contribution is determined not only by family income and assets, but also by such variables as the size of your family, number of family members in college, taxes paid, age of older parent, student savings and earnings, and other factors which may affect a family's financial strength. Any substantial change in a family's situation should be brought to the attention of the Financial Aid Office.


Your financial eligibility or need for aid is determined by subtracting the family contribution from the college's costs, as follows:


COST OF ATTENDANCE - FAMILY CONTRIBUTION = FINANCIAL NEED

How do I log into WebAdvisor?

Along the top of WebAdvisor is a LOG-IN tab to select.  At that point it gives you directions on how to log-in.

How do I send to groups that I could send to before, but now can't?

Please contact the Helpdesk (www.doane.edu/helpdesk) or (x8411) or athelpdesk@doane.edu. Give them your name and what groups you need to send to, and they will grant you permissions to these groups in Gmail.

How do I submit a copy of my grades to my employer for reimbursement?

Most employers accept the WebAdvisor print out of grades.  Doane, like many other area institutions, don't print paper grade mailers anymore so employers are used to the online grade print out.
