After the CJC Financial Aid Office receives a student’s FAFSA, it will determine the maximum eligibility for financial aid and send them a Financial Aid Offer Letter. The Offer Letter will list what types of financial aid are available to students. Students have the option of either accepting or declining any of the awards listed or even requesting a lower amount in loans if they choose.
Students must then print a copy, sign it and return it to the CJC Financial Aid Office before their financial aid can be finalized.
Note: Although loans will not be certified by the CJC Financial Aid Office until the student’s award letter has been signed and returned (and, if selected, verification completed), students will still be able to decline or reduce their loan amounts up to 14 days after the disbursements have been received by the CJC and posted to their student account. When the CJC receives the loan funds, the business office will send students an email notification of the amounts and date posted, with information on how to change their loan amounts.
