When will verification be complete?
FAQ Answer:
  • The verification process varies in the time it takes it to be completed, but typically takes 2-3 weeks after the Financial Aid Office has received all the requested documents. Processing is performed on a first-come, first-serve basis and is done as quickly as possible. You will be awarded any eligible financial aid once the verification process is complete. You can log into the MyDSCC Student Portal to check the status of your financial aid award.  Once in the system you will need to follow these instructions:
    • Click on the Student Tab
    • Click on Financial Aid Awards
    • Select the Aid Year you would like to view.
    • Click on the Award Overview tab.
      • Award descriptions, amounts, and the status will display. 
      • Funds displayed on this page are based on full-time enrollment and may be adjusted based on enrollment.
