Summer Aid 2016

State and federal financial aid is available for qualified applicants attending Dallas Colleges Online for the May term or Summer sessions.

Here are some key things to know about Summer aid:

  • No separate application needed: If you register for May term or Summer classes, we will automatically review your financial aid file. If you are still eligible for 2015-2016 financial aid funds, you will receive an award based on the remaining funds available.

  • You must have completed a FAFSA for 2015-2016: To determine your eligibility, we must have a current Student Aid Report (SAR) for you in the DCCCD student system. If you have already completed your FAFSA but did not list a college of DCCCD, you may use your Federal Student Aid ID (FSA ID) to make corrections to your FAFSA, or you may call 800-433-3243.

  • How we notify you: You will be notified by email about your Summer aid award. You may also view posted financial aid awards, account summaries and other helpful personal information in eConnect, our secure online services (requires login).

  • Avoid getting dropped from your classes: You will be deregistered (DREG) from classes if:

    1) you have not completed a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for 2015-2016 or

    2) you are put on Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) suspension when SAP is calculated for Spring 2016.

  • Want a Summer loan? You must apply for a loan using the electronic eConnect form. Log on to eConnect and click on Apply for Summer Federal Student Loan. The deadline to submit a loan request is July 25.

  • Remember, we may adjust your aid: As a reminder, each semester, institutions are required to adjust financial aid based on your enrollment status and cost of attendance. These adjustments could change your financial aid award and account status. You can view adjustments made in eConnect. You are responsible for reviewing your account to see if you owe any money.

  • We need your transcripts: If you attended any other institution(s) during the 2015-2016 academic year, you must submit all official transcripts to us and we must evaluate them before we can award financial aid.

  • When aid is disbursed: See the 2015-2016 Financial Aid Disbursement Schedule.
