Register for Spring Semester Jan. 6-7

The Spring 2009 semester at Vance-Granville Community College begins on Thursday, Jan. 8, 2009, and registration for spring will conclude on Jan. 6 and Jan. 7. Hours for registration are 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Registration for high school students interested in dual enrollment , also known as “A Step Ahead,” will be held on Jan. 7 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The spring course schedule is available on VGCC’s web site (www.vgcc.edu) under “ Schedules .”

Students may pay, verify payment or charge tuition and fees at the VGCC Business Office on Main Campus (or at the campus where they are enrolled) on the same days as registration and pick up their official schedules. The Main Campus Business Office hours of operation during registration are 8 a.m. – 6 p.m. on Monday-Thursday, and 8 a.m. – 3 p.m. on Fridays. The payment deadline for students registering between Jan. 6 and Jan. 7, is Jan. 7 at 6 p.m.

Frank A. Clark, VGCC Director of Financial Aid , encourages students who need financial assistance to visit his office immediately and complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). For faster results, Clark advises students to apply online at: www.fafsa.ed.gov .

Eligible students may receive Pell Grants ranging from $400 to $4,310. Students may also qualify for other college or state funds, including the NC Education Lottery Scholarships, which are need-based grants that can help many students who previously were not eligible for Pell grants. In order for a student to charge tuition, fees, and books to financial aid awards, the application must be processed entirely prior to the registration period. Students should bring a signed copy of their 2007 federal tax return, and/or their parents’ return, when they apply for funding assistance at any of the four campuses.

Students with preschool-age children may receive financial assistance to help pay for child care, and applications for this help are also available at the Financial Aid Office.

For more details regarding financial assistance, visit the Financial Aid Office in Room 8215 on Main Campus or call (252) 738-3280.


Military veterans who wish to use their Veterans’ Education benefits may contact the Financial Aid Office at (252) 738-3421. Veterans should check with Financial Aid to see if the programs in which they are interested are covered.
