***Federal and State Financial Aid Eligibility, Census Dates, Freeze Dates & Additional Important Information Regarding Disbursements

All Federal Title IV and State Financial Aid Awards reflect the maximum full-time eligibility on student's individual award package.  This is based on the assumption that students will be attending full-time (12+ units).  At the time of disbursement, certain awards will be​ prorated based on student's actual enrollment. Intersession & Spring units are combined for certain programs. 

The SCC FAO only disburses financial aid for classes actively in session and approved SAP units. Classes that will start on a future date will not be disbursed until the class becomes active according to the next scheduled disbursement. (Wait-listed classes are not included in disbursements.) Any unpaid SCC mandatory fees will be deducted from disbursements, including balance from the Book Advance Program (see below).

  • Title IV Federal Aid (Title IV Aid will not be disbursed prior to the Admissions & Records census dates)​​   Pell Grant & Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG) - Uses the Title IV *** Freeze Date (Federal Pell Recalculation Date - PRD) to determine a student's enrollment status at the time of disbursement:
  1. Students who drop classes after receiving their 1st disbursement may receiving a 2nd disbursement if they drop after​ the Title IV ***Freeze Date.
  2. Students who drop classes after receiving their 1st disbursement ​may​ owe back SEOG and/or Pell Grant if they drop prior to the Title IV *** Freeze Date.
  3. Students receiving their first disbursements after the ***Freeze Date will be paid one disbursement based on current active units. Applicants whose financial aid is awarded and processed late in the term will receive one disbursement for the entire amount for that term, if processed on or after the scheduled 2nd disbursement(s) date(s) on this calendar. 

Direct Loan:  Must be in 6 concurrent approved units at time of disbursement.

State Financial Aid​: Cal Grant & Success Completion Grant - is disbursed after the Admissions & Records census dates by class with current active units. For more information, see Cal Grant page of this website.

For more information about each award type, see Conditions of Acceptance​ page of this website.

Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP):​ After acceptance of an award a student's eligibility may change due to an update to SAP, such as a posting of a degree, or units transferred from previous schools, etc.

Financial Aid Book Advance Program: Students may utilize this program as long as they meet the conditions of their financial aid award resources. This may include Pell Grant, FSEOG, Cal Grant, SSCG, and Direct Loans. It is recommended that students utilize this program early and prior to 1st disbursement. Once a student's financial aid has been disbursed, the student will no longer be eligible for this book advance program. Refer to the Book Ad​vance Flyer for more details.
