If you need assistance knowing which FAFSA to complete, review the following chart.

Jefferson Community and Technical College Financial Aid advises that you complete your FAFSA as soon as possible. The priority date for each term indicates that date you should have all documents submitted to be able to utilize institutional benefits such as bookstore charges and being included in first round of disbursements for the term.
Many students are concerned about loan debt and future repayment. There are ways to research your current loan debt, plus calculators to estimate your monthly repayment. To check on your FAFSA student loan debt log in to the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS) for students. You will need your FSA ID.

If you are enrolled in a course(s) that does not count toward your program of study requirements, the course(s) cannot be used to determine your enrollment status for federal financial aid and state need-based aid purposes. This means you cannot receive federal financial aid and state need-based aid for any course that does not count toward your program of study requirements. If it is determined, you are enrolled in a course(s) that does not meet your program of study requirement your aid will be reviewed and any necessary adjustments will be made.
Did you know that dropping all of your classes or failing all of 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 and it is referred to as Return to Title IV (R2T4). You should speak to a Financial Aid Associate before you drop your classes so that you will be prepared for repayment or other negative implications to your financial aid eligibility.
If you have been awarded financial aid, you may be eligible for a Federal Work Study position on campus or in the community. You may also contact our Work Study Coordinator
