Students  accepted into the Veterinary Technology collaborative program pay tuition  directly to the Carver Career and Technical Center, not to BridgeValley.  Admitted students will need to contact the financial aid counselor at Carver to discuss payments options. Financial aid is limited to Pell and Higher Education Adult Part-time Student (HEAPS) grants for students enrolled in the Carver cooperative programs.  At this time, the Carver programs do not accept the Promise Scholarship or other State scholarships. Direct all scholarship applicability questions to the financial aid counselor at Carver Career and Technical Center.
