The early bird gets the dollars according to Bethel‘s Office of Student Financial Services. Students are encouraged to complete all of their financial arrangements for next fall as soon as possible. When students receive their Financial Aid Award Letter they will need to follow all of the directions immediately. These include checking for scholarships that require a thank-you note to be submitted, and the Church Matching Grant which requires a form to be submitted each year by June 1. Students should also be aware of the new federal student loan process which will require students to complete new Master Promissory Note (MPN) forms. And also to complete all the financial forms in April and May. “Follow the instructions with your Award letter carefully and do it early!” said Yvonda Kisor, student accounts manager. Kisor also reminds students that the staff in the Student Financial Services Office is there for them and can be contacted for any needed assistance. The Financial office also provided some important dates for students to mark on their calendars. April 26: May Term- payment due (with classes starting on May 10).
