FAFSA Application Deadlines

It's no fun to miss a deadline that may mean missing out on financial aid or getting the class schedule you really want. Make note of these dates to ensure you've got all your ducks in a row. 

Make sure that you are completing the appropriate FAFSA for the academic year in which you will be attending. An academic year begins in fall and ends in summer. If you are applying for financial aid in the current Spring 2021 term, you will need to complete the 2020-2021 FAFSA at www.fafsa.gov. Make sure to add our FAFSA school code: 017027. Without the school code, SCC cannot view your FAFSA.

Why refund dates matter for FA

  • Remaining in a course past this date means you may be responsible for the charges if the course is not financial aid eligible.
  • Remaining in a course past this date means it will be counted in your FA Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) measures, which can affect future FA eligibility. For more information on the FA SAP policy, please see the FA SAP web page and FA SAP Handbook
  • Withdrawing from a course after this date will result in a lowered completion ratio.
  • If you do not withdraw from the course and receive an 'F' grade, this will both lower your completion ratio and lower your GPA.

Spring 2021 Census Dates

Census dates are the dates that financial aid eligibility is confirmed. A snapshot of your course schedule, active degree program and attendance/participation on the census date will determine your financial aid disbursement.

How Census Dates are Determined

  • MAIN term = End of 4th week of the term (Friday)
  • Mini-term = 14 days after 1st day of term (15th day)

Why census dates matter for FA

  • Adding a course after the census date could mean you are responsible for the cost of the course.
  • After the census date, any degree program changes will NOT be considered for FA eligibility in the current term.
  • Attendance records must reflect that you are actively participating in a course in order to receive financial aid disbursement. If instructor reported attendance records show that you ceased participation in the course before the term census date, you may forfeit financial aid eligibility for that course.
  • Important Note: If you are in at least one MAIN term course, the MAIN term census date will be used to determine your FA eligibility. In other words, aid will not be re-calculated at a later date within the term even if you add a mini-term course.

Spring 2021 Withdrawal Dates
