After the JWCC Financial Aid Office receives a student’s processed FAFSA record from the Department of Education, we will notify the student of any awards via email through your JWCC student account. This information will be based on full-time attendance which reflects full awards.
You should be aware that award notifications are received prior to students having a completed file. If you are selected for verification, corrections made to your student record may change the award amount that you ultimately qualify to receive.
Once verification is completed you will receive a second award notification with updated results from the process. Your SOLAR account will be automatically updated.
No financial aid will be released without a completed file (i.e. verification, satisfactory academic progress appeals, outstanding documentation).
If you feel your circumstances (loss of a job, divorce, etc.) have changed since submission of your FAFSA information, you may qualify for a special circumstance that could impact your award amount. You will need to complete the Special Circumstance Request form and attach income documentation.
