For Financial Aid information, please review application awarding policies on the financial aid website: http://yvcc.edu/financialaid.
Students in the Dental Hygiene, Nursing, and Radiologic Sciences programs are required to meet certain academic requirements prior to being admitted to the program. Because students may enroll in these same classes through an open enrollment associates degree program, the financial office is able to process financial aid for students taking these courses. This policy, in essence, allows students the option of completing either an AA degree or the Associate of Applied Science in Dental Hygiene. Please note that each student must complete his or her program within 150% of the credits needed for the program, plus up to 45 developmental credits, if required. If the student cannot meet this mark, financial aid is withdrawn. Students have the option of completing one degree and then the other with each separate program having its own 150% credit limit.
