How to apply

All students applying for Financial Aid will need to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

You apply online!
Complete the FAFSA on the Web, the online application. You may wish to complete the paper FAFSA on the Web worksheet using the required tax and asset information before you begin completing the online version.

Don't forget to sign it and have your parent sign it. This can be done electronically with a PIN number, or by printing and signing a signature page. If you need parent information on the FAFSA, then both student and parent must sign.

If you sign the FAFSA online with a PIN and have included your e-mail address on the FAFSA, you will receive a response from the U. S. Department of Education very quickly. Typically, this response is sent within 72 hours to your e-mail via bulk e-mail. It is advisable to review e-mails sent to junk, bulk, and spam files 72 hours after submitting the FAFSA. Once a FAFSA confirmation is received via e-mail, mark the U. S. Department of Education as a contact. This will ensure all future e-mail correspondence from the Department of Education is received.

Approximately two to four weeks from the date you mailed your signature page of the FAFSA on the Web, or four to six weeks after you filed your FAFSA online, you will receive your Federal Student Aid Report (SAR). Soon after, you will also receive a letter from the SRJC Financial Aid office requesting that you complete and submit certain documents in order to complete your file and determine if you are eligible for a financial aid award. In order to ensure timely processing, complete and return these documents to us promptly.
