You may reach the Student Financial Aid Office by calling 301-784-5213 or 301-784-5400.  Important updates and general information can be found here. A few main points:
    • You can securely send your documents to our office email account: studentfinancialaid@allegany.edu

    • Under federal government rule, we are continuing to pay your federal work-study wages while the campus is shut down. You will be paid for the hours per week that you were initially assigned. You will need to continue to submit your timesheets and your supervisor will need to approve it, just as we have done in the past.
  • Veterans - Updated April 15, 2020 
    • Student Veterans will continue to receive their GI Bill benefits under S. 3503, which President Trump signed into law March 21.
      • The law enables VA to continue providing the same level of education benefits to students having to take courses online due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
      • The law gives VA temporary authority to continue GI Bill payments uninterrupted in the event of national emergencies. This allows for continued payment of benefits even if the program has changed from resident training to online training.
      • Thanks to the law, GI Bill students will continue receiving the same monthly housing allowance (MHA) payments they received for resident training until Dec. 21, or until the school resumes in-person classes.
    • Students receiving GI Bill benefits are not required to take any action. Benefits will continue automatically. VA will work closely with schools to ensure accurately certified enrollments and timely processing. Updates will be provided to students via direct email campaigns and social media regarding VA’s effort to implement these new changes.
