All financial aid correspondence, including award notifications and missing information requests, will be sent to KCTCS email addresses. To view your financial aid awards, log in to your student self-service. For more information about Financial Aid and the types of awards available, please read our Award Information page.

If you were selected for FAFSA Verification you should submit your forms immediately. The completion of the Verification process is not optional and must be completed before any financial aid awards will be offered. The failure to submit verification in a timely manner may delay disbursements and could prevent a student from utilizing bookstore charge dates. 

Information for Students needing a SAP Appeal

To submit a SAP Appeal, students must complete a SAP appeal form and submit it to the financial aid office. Students should allow a minimum of two weeks for the committee to review the appeal and render a decision.

Thinking About Dropping ALL your classes?

Think Again! Did you know that dropping ALL of your classes or failing ALL your classes could mean that the Financial Aid Office may ask you to repay some or all of your financial aid awards? It is a federal requirement! SCC has many resources to help you through the semester. Review the R2T4 webpage before you make that decision!
