Payment Extension Deadline for Documented Financial Aid Students:
Documented financial aid students’ class schedules will be held until the term date published. A student is considered a documented financial aid student if FSCJ has received a Student Aid Report from the U.S. Department of Education and the student completed a Florida State College at Jacksonville Financial Aid Authorization Form available in their financial aid Connections checklist. Students who have applied for financial aid and have not been awarded or paid from their own resources by the term payment deadline will have their schedule dropped. Once the schedule is dropped, students must re-enroll and be prepared to pay for tuition and fees from their own resources. Students can view their financial aid status by logging in to Connections.
Dec. 18
April 23
First Pay:
Financial aid disbursements are deposited into Florida State College at Jacksonville Refund Card accounts for all students who completed their financial aid file by the priority deadline. Once your tuition, fees and books have been deducted from your semester award and attendance has been verified for 30 days in each of your classes, the College will credit your account and transmit any credit balance to your HigherOne card (FSCJ Refund Card). The amount of time that is required for funds to be available on your HigherOne card depends upon the options that you selected when you registered for your card. After first pay, financial aid disbursements will be processed on a weekly basis as students are awarded. Please check your financial aid checklist in Connections to verify your financial aid status.
