All documents required for financial aid processing must be turned in to the Financial Aid Office by August 1. Students who complete their financial aid packet by the August 1 priority date should have federal funds available for the beginning of the semester. Applications or information received after this date will be processed only as time allows. Students in this situation should be prepared to pay tuition and fees on August 11 (or on the date of registration if later) using other than Federal or State funds.
Awards will be posted upon file processing completion and receipt of federal or state funds. A file is complete when DSCC receives a FAFSA accepted by the Department of Education AND the student turns in all documents required by the DSCC Financial Aid Office AND the student completes his/her admission file AND corrections are completed (if required) AND the student is making satisfactory academic progress for financial aid.
