Financial Aid Updates

New regulations went into effect for the 2016-2017 and 2017-2018 award years that may impact future financial aid eligibility for students. These changes include:

  • Board of Governor's (BOG) Fee Waiver academic progress requirements

  • New FAFSA application period and income tax year reporting

In addition, the Grossmont-Cuyamaca Community College District (GCCCD) is changing the way it disburses financial aid and college refunds to students. Students now have the option to receive their financial aid and college refunds via the GCCCD Cash Card.

For complete details on all the changes and updates that are important for students to know, please read our communique.

If you have questions after reading all the changes, please contact the Financial Aid Office.

Apply on-line for a Scholarship

Scholarship applications are now available to be completed on-line and submitted electronically. Don't miss this opportunity to apply for a scholarship. It's fast and easy!

E-mail

We want to correspond with you through email. Using email helps us save on the costs of paper, postage, etc. You also have the benefit of getting correspondence from us immediately rather than waiting for snail mail.

Do we have your email address? If we do, is it correct?

You can provide an email address, verify the current email address that we have or update your address by completing the address/email change request form.

If we do have your email address, here are some tips to make sure you actually receive our emails. We don't want you to miss out on important information that may affect your financial aid!

  • Make sure your email box isn't full. There are many emails that we are sending that are bouncing back because the box is full. Check for email from us often and keep your box clear.
  • Some e-mail accounts include "bulk mail folders" or "junk mail folders" and our emails to you may be perceived as unsolicited mail and directed in to these folders or you may not get them at all. Check all your folders to determine if this is happening.
  • Because our email may contain a hyperlink, the message may be perceived as unwanted email or "spam" and your personal email account settings may filter it out. You may have to contact your provider if this occurs.
  • To ensure that our email reaches you, you may want to set up a free e-mail account at login.yahoo.com, www.gmail.com or www.outlook.com and don't give it to anyone but us. Make sure you provide us with this email address by logging into WebAdvisor and select the "Update Personal Information" link once you are on the Student page.
