WINTER/SPRING 2024 Disbursement & Cutoff Schedule

The following schedule outlines the disbursement and cutoff dates for Winter/Spring 2023 terms. VVC does not disburse any financial aid during the Winter term intersession. All aid will be disbursed for Winter and Spring at the same time in accordance with this schedule. Students must meet disbursement eligibility requirements

Students are paid aid based on classes they are attending. For example, if a student has a class that is starting later in the semester, aid will not be disbursed until the course starts and the student is attending.
