Financial Aid Award Process
Financial Aid awards will be made after the FAFSA results are sent to the college by the government processor and the entire financial aid application process has been completed. If a student's record is selected for verification (a review of the FAFSA data), all required documentation and corrected FAFSA information must be received before the application process is complete.
An Award Letter notification is sent to each student who completes the application process and for whom aid eligibility can be determined. The Award Letter notification contains the names and amounts of the financial aid awards the student is eligible to receive. Important information about restrictions and conditions that can affect the ability of the students to receive the amounts awarded is available on the DCCCD website. When a student's award package is available for review, the student will be notified by e-mail to log on to eConnect to accept the terms and conditions of the Award Letter and to activate the awards for payment. You must accept your awards on the official award notification before financial aid will transmit to your DCCCD student account.
