Financial Aid for Students

The Financial Aid Office located in room 2201 west campus assists students in applying for and receiving financial aid to help pay the cost of education. The Financial Aid website contains a wealth of information about application procedures and links to many non-Century sites to make the search for financing easier. 

Application Process

When to Apply:

Student should apply for financial aid after October 1 for the following academic year. Students are encouraged to apply early and MUST APPLY ANNUALLY.

How to Apply:

To determine eligibility for grants, loans, and student employment, students are required to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and have the results sent to Century College. The Federal Code to release FAFSA results to Century College is 010546.

A signature is required to complete the FAFSA and can be signed electronically provided the student (and parent of a dependent student) has a Federal Student Aid ID. To apply for a FSAID, visit fsaid.ed.gov.

STUDENTS MUST APPLY FOR FINANCIAL AID EVERY YEAR.

What to Expect After Applying:

After the FAFSA is completed online and an email address was provided, the student will receive an email in a few days with a secure link to the Student Aid Report (SAR) on the Web. Review the SAR as it is the product of your FAFSA application and contains eligibility information. The SAR will not tell you what your financial aid award is but will tell you important information about the EFC (expected family contribution) used to calculate your award, the colleges that you chose to release the information to, and/or if more information is needed to compile your award.

Additional Information/Verification

Students may be required to submit additional documents to complete the financial aid application such as tax transcripts and citizenship status information. The Financial Aid Office will contact you for more information if necessary. Failure to respond will result in a delay in determining what financial aid you may be eligible to receive.

Award Notice

The College will determine award eligibility after all documents are recieved and processed. The student will receive an email with instructions on how to access their award notice online. Students can access application and award information through Century’s e-Services .

Important Note: Receiving the Award Notice is not necessarily the last step for receiving financial aid. Additional steps are required for both student loans and student employment.

Financial Aid Policies

Financial Aid for Summer

Students may be able to utilize financial aid for summer provided the eligibility has not been used for the preceding academic year. Students who have a complete financial aid application and have registered for summer classes will receive a financial aid award for summer for any eligibility that may exist.

Students must be registered for at least 6 credits to be eligible for a student loan.  Students must be registered for at least 1 credit to be eligible to receive student employment.

Financial Aid for Developmental/Remedial Coursework

Students who are eligible for federal financial aid (Pell Grants and SEOG Grants and Direct Student Loans) can receive financial aid for up to 30 credits of developmental coursework. Developmental/remedial courses are numbered below the 100 level (i.e. MATH 0030 , ENGL 0080 ). If you have received financial aid for 30 such credits and enroll in additional developmental/remedial credits, you will not receive federal financial aid for those credits.

Withdrawal from College/Return of Title IV Funds

If a student completely withdraws from all credits (either officially or unofficially) in a term before the 60% point of that term, the financial aid disbursed is subject to the federal and State “Return of Title IV” policy. Students earn financial aid in proportion to the time they are enrolled up to the 60% point. The unearned share of financial aid is returned to the programs from which they were paid as prescribed by federal and state regulations. The student will be required to repay all unearned financial aid. Students also may need to repay a portion of financial aid they received if courses are not completed satisfactorily. Please contact the Financial Aid Office prior to withdrawing if you have any questions regarding your possible repayment obligation.

Changes in Enrollment (Add/Drop/Withdraw)

When you change your enrollment (add/drop/withdraw), your financial aid eligibility may change. The financial aid source and the date of your drop or withdrawal has an impact on the change of financial aid. Contact the Financial Aid Office if you have questions.

Late Start Classes:

If you drop a late start class before it begins and have been paid financial aid for your enrollment in the class, the Financial Aid Office will recalculate your eligibility and you may have to refund all or part of the financial aid for the term

Pell Grant Recipients: Federal regulations require colleges to establish a Pell Grant lock date to determine the courses that are counted toward a student’s Pell Grant eligibility. Century College has established the 10th day of class as the lock date. Financial aid disbursements then begin on the 11th day of class based on your lock date enrollment.

Dropped courses that are eligible for a tuition refund will have Pell Grant eligibility reduced to the new credit level.

Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy for Financial Aid Summary:

The Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy for Financial Aid requires that a student maintain acceptable academic standards in the pursuit of their chosen degree, diploma, or certificate. The student is required to maintain, at a minimum:

  • A cumulative GPA of 2.0, and,
  • Completion rate of 67% of credits attempted, and
  • Have not reached or exceeded 150% of the maximum credits needed to attain the chosen academic goal (including transfer credits).

The complete policy and appeal process can be found on the Financial Aid Policies webpage.

The Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy for Financial Aid differs from the College’s Standard for Academic Progress. It is possible to be suspended from financial aid and not be suspended from the College. Students can appeal their suspension.
