DSCC to Implement Year-Round Pell Grant

Students may qualify for year-round Pell Grant beginning summer semester 2018!

Dyersburg State Community College (DSCC) has announced that it will implement the year-round Pell Grant beginning this summer semester. Eligible students will receive a full Pell Grant for summer semester even if they received a full Pell Grant during the fall 2017 and spring 2018 semesters. Students must be enrolled in at least 6 credit hours to take advantage of this opportunity.

To apply for the Pell Grant for summer 2018, students must complete the 2017-2018 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online at www.fafsa.gov. DSCC’s School Code is 006835. Students must also complete the 2018 Summer Financial Aid Request – PELL form. To complete this form, students must log in to the MyDSCC student portal, click on the “Student” tab, click on “2018 Summer Financial Aid Request – PELL” under the “Student Quick Links” box, then follow the steps to complete the form.

Students who do not meet the eligibility requirements for the Federal Pell Grant may request a student loan to help pay for summer courses. Students must be enrolled in at least 6 credit hours to be eligible for a student loan. To complete the Student Loan Request Form, students must log in to the MyDSCC student portal, click on the “Student” tab, click on the “2018 Loan Request Form – Summer” under the “Student Quick Links” box, then follow the steps to complete the form.

Registration for summer classes begins March 19. DSCC encourages all students to take advantage of the year-round Pell Grant and other financial aid opportunities this summer to finish your degree faster. The Financial Aid Office will begin posting summer 2018 awards to students’ MyDSCC accounts in or around April 2018. Students must have all verification paperwork submitted to be considered for financial aid.
