Payment/Financial Aid

Priority Date for Financial Aid Processing


All documents required for financial aid processing must be turned in to the Financial Aid Office by August 1, 2015. Students eligible for aid who complete their financial aid packet by the August 1 financial aid priority date should have federal funds available for the beginning of the following semester. Applications or information received after this date will be processed only as time allows. Students should be prepared to pay tuition and fees by August 11, 2015, or enroll in the Deferred Payment Plan.

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 completes all requirements for admission to DSCC AND corrections are completed (if required) AND the student is making satisfactory academic progress for financial aid.
