Access to Financial Aid for Undocumented Students

The Connecticut General Assembly enacted a state law that allows undocumented students to apply for institutional financial aid.  You must meet certain age, residency, and criminal history requirements along with an affidavit with the institution you are attending about your intent to legalize their immigration status when they are eligible to do so.  This does not apply to non-immigrant visa holders.

Undocumented Veterans are eligible now and other undocumented students will be eligible to apply for the 2019-2020 academic year, with funding beginning in spring 2020.



QVCC exceeds last years rank for military friendly colleges

Quinebaug Valley Community College has earned the 2019-2020 Military Friendly® Schools Designation.  In addition to Gold status, The College has been recognized as a Top 10 Military Friendly® School, ranking fifth in the small community college category nationwide.  The Military Friendly® Top 10 Schools are the guidon bearers for military/veteran programs and initiatives. They set the standard for other designations and are programs that continue to improve every year. Top 10 Award winners have programs that scored the highest within a given category.

Annie Hill, QVCC veteran services associate and certifying official stated, “It is such an honor to have exceeded last year’s Gold status distinction. We are very proud of the service we provide to our Veteran students and their families. We are constantly looking for ways to improve the services offered to those who have so selflessly served our country.”

Now in its 10th year, the Military Friendly® Schools list has come to set the standard for higher education institutions to provide the best opportunities for veterans and their spouses. This prestigious list provides a comprehensive guide for veterans and their families using data sources from federal agencies and proprietary survey information from participating organizations.

Military Friendly® is owned and operated by VIQTORY, a veteran-owned business. Founded in 2001, VIQTORY is a service-disabled, veteran-owned small business that connects the military community to civilian employment, educational and entrepreneurial opportunities through its G.I. Jobs ®, Military Spouse, and Military Friendly ® brands.
