Important Dates and Receiving Your Aid

Important Dates

We evaluate financial aid application(s) based on the quarterly priority deadlines below. A deadline is considered met if you have applied for the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) AND complete paperwork requested by EvCC Financial Aid department is submitted by the date noted below (depending on your starting quarter). 

The FAFSA is completed on an annual basis.  If you meet the priority deadline of March 16, 2015, you may be considered for maximum funding for the 2015-16 school year and may be eligible for an automatic tuition hold on your registration and/or postponement of your tuition.

Any applications completed after that quarter's priority deadline may not be reviewed in time for tuition payment.

Receiving Your Aid

Eligible applicants will be sent a Notice of Financial Aid Award by email. The awards can also be seen on your Financial Aid Portal. The award will indicate the kind of aid (grant, work-study, loans, etc.) and the amount awarded from each program. The conditions and terms of your award are found here. Applicants who meet the priority deadline will receive maximum funding consideration and will receive their award notices on a rolling basis. Applications received after the priority deadline will receive notification as soon as time permits and on a funds available basis. Please note, if you do not meet our quarterly deadline, there is no guarantee that your financial aid file will be reviewed prior to the end of the quarter. This may affect your request for loans as well, since one-quarter loans must be certified prior to the last published date of the quarter.

Financial Aid checks will be mailed from U.S. Bank to your current mailing address on file with Enrollment Services Office, sent to your existing bank account or deposited directly onto your EvCC Card. More about the EvCC Card. For checks, it is your responsibility to verify the accuracy of the address on file with Enrollment Services, as EvCC is not responsible for checks not received by the student. View or correct your address through the Student Kiosk. Please note that U.S. bank checks expire in 90 days.
