Summer, 2019 Aid Processing will begin on approximately April 8, 2019. If you will be attending Jefferson Community and Technical College for the Summer 2019 Semester and would like to receive Financial Aid, you must do the following:
After students register for Summer, 2019 courses AND have a 2018-2019 FAFSA with the 006961 Jefferson Community and Technical College school code on file, it will take approximately 10 business days for us to review and respond to your request for financial aid. If your Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) status is currently at Warning, Probation, or Plan of Action we cannot process your request for financial aid for the Summer, 2019 term until the “End of Term Processing” for the Spring, 2019 semester is complete and academic progress evaluations can be finalized. End of Term Processing is tentatively scheduled for May 15, 2019 and Academic Progress Evaluations are tentatively scheduled for May 18, 2019.
If your SAP status is evaluated to be in “NOT MEETS” or “SUSPEND” status, you will not be eligible for Summer financial aid. Please review the SAP Appeal Process.
Pell Grant eligible students can receive up to 150% of their scheduled Pell award for each year.
What does this mean for you?
Summer 2019 = May 28, 2019 through June 14, 2019 (THESE ARE APPROXIMATE DATES)
Financial Aid will likely NOT be available to meet the payment deadline or to purchase books for classes that start on or before May 20, 2019.
Please be sure you have a Financial Aid Release (FAR) form on record. You can obtain the FAR form at the Financial Aid Office or from the "Forms" page on our web site. It may also be available from your Student Self-Service.
SUMMER LOAN INFORMATION
If you are eligible for student loans, we will automatically offer this to you in your award package for the term. You will need to accept, reduce, or decline via your student self-service.
If you choose to pursue student loan funding, please be advised that loan disbursements for the first year, first time borrowers must be delayed 30 days into the term. To ensure your loan is not delayed, be sure to sign your Master Promissory Note (MPN), complete Entrance Loan Counseling and complete the Financial Awareness Counseling at http://www.studentloans.gov immediately after you accept your loan.
Please also remember to remain enrolled in at least six credit hours or more and to always be in good academic standing in your coursework.
Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) is used to define successful completion of coursework to maintain eligibility for student financial aid.
Federal regulations require the institution to establish, publish and apply standards to monitor your progress towards completion of your certificate or degree program.
If it is determined you are enrolled in a course(s) that does not meet your degree requirements, your aid will be reviewed and any necessary adjustments will be made. You will be responsible for settling any potential outstanding balance created.
If you are aware you are enrolled in a course(s) that does not meet your degree requirements, please notify our office as soon as possible
Regulations require that financial aid students begin attendance in each of their classes.
Students who do not attend class are referred to as NO SHOWS and their aid disbursements are withheld until attendance can be proven.
If for some reason the award has already been paid, you'll be required to repay any amount that you are not eligible to receive.
If you have other questions about attendance requirements, please contact your Financial Aid Office.
When you are admitted, Jefferson establishes a student account for you, identified by your personal ID number, often referred as your EMPL ID. Your student account records all charges (and payments) for tuition, books, and fees. After you have met all eligibility requirements, financial aid awards are credited to your Jefferson student account each semester. Financial aid and scholarship disbursement dates vary each semester. Disbursements generally begin in September (for fall term), February (for spring term), and late June (for summer term).
Aid disbursement will be based on the total number of credit hours you are enrolled in or have completed during the term as of the census date. The census date is generally the 7th calendar day from the start of the semester. Therefore, please be sure to register for all of your intended courses by the census date. This is how your financial aid eligibility will be determined.
Before expecting a financial aid disbursement, make sure the following things are in order:
If you have a credit balance (financial aid awards and any other credits are greater
than your total bill), you'll receive a refund.
When the refund process begins each semester and after all fees and charges are paid, your financial aid credit is automatically refunded to you. Generally the refund process for the fall begins in early September, for the spring, it begins in early February, and for the summer, it begins in late June.
Kentuckiana College Access Center (KCAC) can help you complete and file your FAFSA. This free service is a valuable resource to our students. However, please note this is not the Financial Aid Office at Jefferson. Once you fill out your FAFSA, you will need to submit any necessary or requested financial aid paperwork to a Jefferson Financial Aid office location.
