After You Apply

Once your FAFSA is processed, you will receive a Student Aid Report (SAR) from the Department of Education; the college(s) you selected will receive the results in the form of an electronic Institutional Student Information Record (ISIR). This will prompt each student to be mailed a letter from the Financial Aid Office requiring student follow up. This letter will detail the instructions of where to find the forms to complete in Entrata. Students can view more details about each required form here as well. All forms are kept on the financial aid webpage if students have trouble locating the forms through Entrata. Click here to view the Financial Aid Forms.

Each student for 2019-2020 will be required to complete a Data Sheet and review the Financial Aid Contract.

Some applicants will be selected for verification by the Department of Education or IECC and will be required to submit additional documents to complete the processing. Verification is the process of reviewing the accuracy of the information provided on the FAFSA. Aid will not be awarded to applicants that have been selected for verification until all required documentation has been submitted and reviewed.

Students interested in a Direct Student Loan will need to complete a Loan Request Form. All requested information should be submitted as soon as possible to avoid processing delays.

Students interested in a Federal Work Study position should request an application from the Financial Aid Office to begin the employment process.

After all documents are received and satisfied, the college will package and award aid to the student, notifying
him/her via an award notice. Students whose authorized financial aid exceeds the balance owed the institution
AND that receive an award notice from an IECC school at least 10 days before the beginning of the semester will
be guaranteed a book voucher no later than 7 days after the first day of the semester. Students will need to speak
with a representative of the Business Office to print the book voucher.

In compliance with Federal Regulations, the Financial Aid Office must have received a processed ISIR from the
Department of Education by the student’s last day of enrollment in the current award year to determine if a
disbursement of FSA funds can be made. The student’s financial aid will be delivered based on the disbursement
schedule on the student’s award notice.
