The FAFSA Process

STEP 1

Apply for admission. You may apply online. This is a separate process from applying for financial aid. However, financial aid cannot be awarded until you are approved for admission and official high school/equivalency transcript has been received. For additional information on admission, please visit the Admissions page.

STEP 2

Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

Don’t forget to add PCC's school code: 009646

Students may begin completing the FAFSA on October 1 each year

STEP 3

Once your FAFSA has been processed by the Department of Education, you will receive a Student Aid Report, by mail or by e-mail if the e-mail address is provided.  The Student Aid Report indicates the students and/or parent ability to assist with payment of education cost.  This numerical value is called the EFC (Expected Family Contribution).   Your FAFSA application will then be forwarded to PCC for processing.

STEP 4

When the Financial Aid Office receives a copy of your FAFSA from the U.S. Department of Education, a letter will be sent to you requesting documents needed to complete your file. Once all documents are received, your financial aid file will be reviewed for a possible award.

STEP 5

If it is determined that you are eligible for aid, you will receive a financial aid award letter from PCC.  Please read the award letter notification packet.

  • We recommend students seeking financial aid assistance to cover educational expenses to complete the FAFSA process prior to registration

Verification is the process schools use to confirm that the data reported on your FAFSA form is accurate. Schools have the authority to contact you for documentation that supports the information you reported.

If you are selected for verification, do not assume you are being accused of doing anything wrong. Some people are selected at random; and some schools verify all students' FAFSA forms. All you need to do is provide the documentation your school asks for and be sure to do so by the school’s deadline or you may lose financial aid eligibility.

Piedmont Community College partners with the School Servicing Center to complete most verifications. If you are selected for verification, you will receive an email from the School Servicing Center with instructions on submitting your forms. If you are selected by PCC for verification, you will receive a letter notifying you of the documentation required.

It is important to remember that maintaining your financial aid is an ongoing process. Not only must you reapply for financial aid every year, but the Financial Aid office must continually monitor your eligibility for aid.

Students must adhere to the Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) policy in order to maintain Financial Aid eligibility.  If you do not meet these requirements, you can lose your financial aid eligibility. However, we’re aware that personal challenges can affect whether you maintain your good standing. If you lose your eligibility for financial aid due to mitigating circumstances, you can submit an appeal explaining these issues to the Financial Aid office.

The Financial Aid office is required to review your entire academic record (regardless of the age of the record or whether or not aid was received) to determine if you are in compliance. If you are not in compliance, you will be notified in writing of your denial/suspension and the appropriate appeal procedure.
