After becoming eligible for VA benefits, do I have to do anything?

Chapters 30, 1606, and 1607 need to verify attendance each month via the WAVE system (Web Automated Verification of Enrollment).  Monthly payments are not dispersed until this is done.

Am I eligible to receive financial aid?

To be eligible to receive federal student aid, you must:

  • Be a citizen or eligible noncitizen of the United States.

  • Have a valid Social Security Number. (Students from the Republic of the Marshall Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, and the Republic of Palau are exempt from this requirement.)

  • Have a high school diploma or a General Education Development (GED) certificate, or have completed homeschooling. If you don’t, you may still be eligible for federal student aid if you were enrolled in college or career school prior to July 1, 2012. Go to for additional information.

  • Be enrolled in an eligible program as a regular student seeking a degree or certificate.

  • Maintain satisfactory academic progress.

  • Not owe a refund on a federal student grant or be in default on a federal student loan.

  • Register (or already be registered) with the Selective Service System, if you are a male and not currently on active duty in the U.S. Armed Forces. (Students from the Federated States of Micronesia, the Republic of the Marshall Islands and the Republic of Palau are exempt from registering; see for more information.)

  • Not have a conviction for the possession or sale of illegal drugs for an offense that occurred while you were receiving federal student aid (such as grants, work-study, or loans). If you have such a conviction, you must complete the Student Aid Eligibility Worksheet to determine if you are eligible for aid or partially eligible for aid.

  • Many types of federal student aid, such as the Federal Pell Grant or subsidized loans where the government pays the interest while you are in college, also require you to have financial need. Additionally, once you have a bachelor’s degree or a first professional degree, you are generally not eligible for Pell or Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants (FSEOG).

Other requirements may apply. 

Are different Residence Halls, different prices?

No. All Residence Halls have the same base price per building. However, pricing varies based on whether residents live in a single room (one person room), double room (two-person room), or private room (double room reserved for one person).

Are my scholarships and other financial aid renewable?

Yes, provided you meet grade point averages and department requirements. For federal financial aid, students must make satisfactory academic progress toward a degree as described in the Doane University Catalog.

Federal financial aid is determined each year as described above. Funds may or may not be renewed based on eligibility and availability of funds at the time of application. 

Are participants required to stay for lunch?

Lunch is part of the workshop.  It will be followed by the keynote address and the awards.  All activities will end by 1:00.

Are pets allowed in the Residence Halls?

Just fish. Students are permitted to have one 10 gallon aquarium per room.

Are there any requirements for federal aid?

There are some that must be met to receive federal aid. A student must be degree seeking, a U.S. citizen or eligible non-citizen, and must not be in default on a federal student loan, or owe a refund on a Federal Pell Grant, Federal SEOG, or TEACH, etc. A student must maintain satisfactory progress in his/her course of study and must register with the Selective Service, if required to do so. More information on these requirements, as well as students' rights and responsibilities, may be found in The Student Guide, published annually by the U.S. Department of Education. It is available in the Doane Financial Aid Office, the U.S. Department of Education web site, or by calling 1.800.4.FEDAID. The satisfactory progress policy is found in the Doane University Catalog and our Web site.

Are these courses graduate level?

Yes, all courses are taught at the graduate level and may be used as electives for the Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction. Should a student wish to complete the Master of Education degree program, three additional courses are required after completion of the certification classes.
