ATTENTION STUDENTS WITH FAS VERIFICATION REQUIREMENTS
The District Financial Aid Office has partnered with FINANCIAL AID SERVICES (FAS) to complete verification. If you receive an email or letter from FAS, please respond immediately. If selected for verification and you have the FAS Verification requirement on Web Gate, click on the link from the Student Requirements page and follow the instructions. You will be directed to the FAS verification website at www.SSCwp.org. In addition, FAS will be contacting you requesting the information needed to complete the required verification process. Complete the verification requirements as soon as possible. You will be able to track what is needed and can possibly complete most of the requirements on the FAS Verification website.
Please watch for emails from FAS at verification@SSCwp.org and check your account often at www.SSCwp.org until you are notified by FAS that your verification has been finalized. Your prompt response to all requests will accelerate the review of your request for financial aid. Questions regarding completing this verification process should be directed to FAS at 855-328-4400.
NEW!! DIRECT SUBSIDIZED LOAN LIMIT
There is a maximum period of time that you can receive Direct Subsidized Loans. You may not receive Direct Subsidized Loans for more than 150% of the length of your program of intent. This is called your “maximum eligibility period”. Timely program completion is more important now than ever before. Be sure you have an academic plan in place to help you stay on track with your program. Please see Federal Direct Loans for more information.
PELL GRANT LIFETIME ELIGIBILITY(LEU)
The amount of Federal Pell grant funds a student may receive over his or her lifetime is limited to be the equivalent of six years (full-time) Pell Grant awards. Since the maximum amount of Pell Grant awards a student can receive each year is equal to 100%, the six-year equivalent is 600%.
