Veteran's Benefits

New River wants to take the opportunity to thank you and/ or your family member for serving our country. New River is proud of our veteran students and the children and spouses of veterans. We are appreciative of the honor and dignity in which you served and continue to serve the United States of America.

New River Community and Technical College's mission is to provide high quality, affordable accessible education to our students. We are committed to providing resources and support to veterans as they make the transition from soldier to student.

Course Schedules

General Schedule Information

Please refer to the General Schedule Information (Spring 2015) for important dates (like final exams) as well as tuition/fee information. All of the schedules include courses offered at all New River campuses.

For the most current information (it is updated in real time), you may now access our Interactive Course Schedule database to sort, query and interact with the data to locate specifically the course information you need. Because the schedule changes so frequently, any printed version is already out of date but this interactive version has the current information. You can use the interactive database to find all the MATH 100 courses or all the courses offered just on the Nicholas County campus. You could even query to find only the courses offered at 1000 hours (10AM) or maybe just the completely online (Blackboard Learn) courses.

Interactive Course Schedules

We also provide all-on-one-page versions of the schedules, as well as the IVN courses separated out from all of the other courses in a graphical display to quickly see where the IVN courses are scheduled.

Drug Offenses and Financial Aid

The Higher Education Opportunity Act requires all colleges and universities to notify all students, even those who are not receiving financial aid, about the financial aid implications of drug convictions. Under federal law, anyone convicted of a drug offense while receiving federal financial aid will lose their eligibility. This communication is to make you aware of the consequences for drug convictions; we are not implying or assuming any prior drug conviction or offense.

 

Here’s a quick guide to the regulations:

 

Those convicted of possessing illegal drugs will lose financial aid eligibility for:

  • First offense: 1 year from date of conviction
  • Second offense: 2 years from date of conviction
  • Third offense: indefinitely

 

Those convicted of selling illegal drugs will lose financial aid eligibility for:

  • First offense: 2 years from date of conviction
  • Second offense: indefinitely

 

For more information, review the FAFSA rules on financial aid eligibility.

 

If you have questions about this federal financial aid policy, speak with a Financial Aid Counselor at New River Community and Technical College.
