Award Information

Award Process & Information

After submitting your FAFSA, the U.S. Department of Education processes it and sends it to SJCC electronically. When the Financial Aid Office (FAO) receives your information (usually about 2 weeks processing time) the following will occur:

  • FAO will e-mail you requesting documents to complete your file

  • Eligibility for the BOGFW is determined immediately

  • Once you submit the requested documents, FAO will review your file and documents
                  *Additional documents may be requested by FAO for clarification 

  • Your financial need and eligibility for various types of aid will be determined.

    • Award information will be posted on MyWeb.
                  *The amounts stated reflect your eligibility at full-time enrollment.
                  * If you register less than full-time, your aid will be adjusted to reflect your enrollment

    • Financial Aid funds are disbursed starting the week before classes begin each semester. If your file is completed and awarded after that, your funds will be disbursed 2-3 weeks after your file is complete.
