  5. Outside Aid

    • Kansas Works
    • Outside scholarships (organizations, high schools, etc.)

You can apply for Federal Student Aid (PELL grant, student loans, work study) by completing the FAFSA at www.fafsa.ed.gov. You can apply for an ICC scholarship and an ICC Foundation scholarship by completing the online application. All ICC Scholarship recipients must complete the appropriate year's FAFSA. ICC treats summer as the end of the award year (e.g., Summer 2018 is part of the 2017-18 FAFSA; not a part of the 2018-19 FAFSA).

You will receive an estimate of the financial aid you are eligible for in the form of a Financial Aid Shopping Sheet. You will receive your ICC Shopping Sheet via email once ICC receives your FAFSA. You can also access your Shopping Sheet online at any time on the online financial aid system.

Some students are selected for verification by the Dep't of Education or by ICC. Verification requires you submit documents to verify certain information you provided in the FAFSA. Verification is required in order for you to be disbursed any federal student aid. Students selected for verification beginning with the 2018-19 FAFSA must complete verification through Inceptia’s Verification Gateway.

All students must submit the FSA Authorization form and all applicable final transcripts. You can view the list of documents needed from you on the 
online financial aid system.

Financial aid is generally disbursed in one payment each semester to qualifying students who have provided all required documentation. The disbursement schedule is set by the Office of Student Financial Aid each term. You can view the disbursement schedule or view the deadline schedule. You must be attending and/or passing your course(s) in order to receive your disbursement. Financial aid is disbursed to your student account to pay for all qualifying educationally related expenses. Any funds remaining after your expenses have been paid is refunded to you.

The Financial Aid Office does not calculate your refund. You must review your billing statement in your Pirate Portal, take into consideration your cost of on-campus housing (if applicable) and calculate how much you would receive back after all those costs have been paid for. The Business Office can assist you with this calculation.

ICC scholarships do not cover the cost of student fees (a per-credit-hour charge), the meal plan, student housing, or non-textbook supplies charged to the student’s account.

The Parent PLUS Loan request form an authorization is located here in the forms section of our webpage. Once your parent submits their request, our office will contact the parent directly via email to discuss their application.
