Financial Aid Information for Upcoming Terms

FSCJ's Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid is dedicated to providing accurate and timely awarding. We are excited to announce a more robust way for students to view, accept and decline awards. Our goal is to award prior to the payment deadline of each term for those students who have a complete financial aid file. If you have turned in your required documents for verification, those documents are being processed. Please be mindful that if additional documentation is needed, we will communicate that to you through your "To-Do List" in myFSCJ.

To apply for financial aid, you should visit and complete the application. Once the application is processed, you will receive a summary of your information in your Student Aid Report (SAR).  If you provided an email address, your SAR will be sent by email within three to five days. If no email address is provided, the SAR will be mailed to you within three weeks. When you receive your SAR, your should begin checking myFSCJ for communications from FSCJ's financial aid office. For specific questions, you can call (904) 646-2300/(877) 633-5950 or visit one of our campuses or centers' financial aid offices.

Initial Drop Deadline

All checklist items must be in a “Complete” status prior to the published initial drop for nonpayment deadline in order for FSCJ to determine eligibility for coverage of tuition, fees and books. Those who do not meet the published initial drop deadline will be responsible for paying their educational expenses from their own resources until eligibility is established.  Payments are due by 7 p.m. eastern standard time (EST) of the established payment deadline date. Failure to make your payment by 7 p.m. (EST) will result in classes being dropped from your schedule. Check your status online.
