Monitor your FAFSA Application Status

The U.S. Department of Education requires colleges to verify the accuracy of information provided on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This requirement means that each year a percentage of students who complete the FAFSA are selected for the verification process.

Notifications of information/documentation needed will be emailed to your CCC email and displayed on the Financial Aid section of MyCCC. All requirements must be completed before financial aid is offered.

Documents can also be printed from our Forms page.
