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.

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?

Yes! We have programs available for certification as an elementary or 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.

My advisor mentioned doing a Directed Study or Tutorial, how do I register for that?

Directed Study and Tutorial forms are available at the Registrar's Office.  Students must complete the appropriate form and submit it to the Registrar's Office.  Advisors cannot schedule these courses through WebAdvisor.

My advisor mentioned I need a course substitution. What do I do?

First decide if the substitution is in the Doane Core or major/minor.  If the substitution is in the Doane Core there is a form to complete that also explains the required steps.  If the substitution is in your major/minor, send an email to your advisor explaining the substitution.  Upon your advisors approval they will forward it to the appropriate Division Chair, who will review it for approval, and then forward it to the Registrar to be posted on your academic record.

My roommate just moved out! What do I?

If you lose your roommate shortly before or during the academic year, you have a couple options. 


For vacancies after Census Day, you can keep your room without being charged for a private.  Doane Housing may assign a roommate for you, or reassign you to a vacancy in another room, but your housing rate for the semester won't go up.  In order to avoid the private room rate next semester, however, you will need to find a roommate before the following Census Day.  Alternately, you can opt to pay for a private for the remainder of the semester/year.  Doing so will increase your housing fee, but Doane Housing will not assign a resident to the empty spot in your room, nor will we reassign you to another room unless housing needs mandate it.  Housing moves and forced dissolution of private rooms is exceptionally rare.


If your roommate leaves before Census Day, you are responsible for finding a new roommate or paying the private rate for the room.  This means you can either find someone to move in with you, or find someone and move in with them.  You must either reserve the room as a private or begin the room move process by Census Day in order to avoid a private charge.
