Please take a few moments and thoroughly review this information regarding your Financial Aid at SCC. Most awards listed on your award notification letter or your financial aid awards page are based upon full-time enrollment (12 credit hours or more) eligibility. Awards will be adjusted to match eligibility based on enrollment level after the Census date of each semester if you do not attend full-time.
Please visit the KCTCS PeopleSoft Self-Service online system to view and accept or decline your awards. You may access PeopleSoft Self-Service at https://students.kctcs.edu/. This is a secure process (the “s” after “http” indicates this.) Once completed, your financial aid award will be automatically updated.
To accept an offered award such as a Loan, you must check ‘Accept’ and then click ‘Submit’. If you want to accept less than what you are offered, you can adjust the amount after you have checked ‘Accept’. Once you are finished making adjustments, you can click ‘Submit’ to finalize these changes.
By accepting disbursement of this aid, you are agreeing that you have read and understand the information provided including your rights and responsibilities as a financial aid recipient.
The disbursement process will begin after the Financial Aid Census date for each semester. The disbursement date represents the earliest date funds can be applied to your account in Student Billing. The Financial Aid Office cannot guarantee the arrival date or disbursement date of funds.
As calculated by the SCC Financial Aid Office, your financial aid package may consist of Federal/State Grants, Federal Student Loans, Scholarships, and/or Federal Work Study. All aid was determined by the information you provided on your FAFSA. Information about the aid programs as well as academic requirements for eligibility can be found online at www.kctcs.edu/student/financialaidscholarships. Additional student consumer information can be found here: Consumer Information
Financial Aid programs cannot be paid to a student if attendance is not verified. Students who have multiple start dates whose enrollment changes as a new term/semester begins will have their financial aid adjusted to reflect any changes made. Financial Aid may be reduced and/or canceled if the student fails to take all of the classes for which they enroll.
In order to continue eligibility for Federal and State aid, you are expected to make Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) toward graduation. Federal and State Financial Aid funds will not be awarded until you have successfully been evaluated for SAP.
A student who totally withdraws, ceases to attend classes, or receives all failing grades (E, F, W, or I) will be subject to the Return to Title IV policy. Federal Aid will be returned based on last date of attendance. A student whose attendance is documented by the instructor past the 60% mark of the semester will not be subject to the Return to Title IV Policy. Additional information regarding R2T4 is available at the Financial Aid Office or can be found here.
Please contact the SCC Financial Aid Office at (855) 66GO-SCC if you have any questions about your awards or the aid process.
