For Fall 2020, Spring 2021, Summer 2021:  Complete 2020-2021   FAFSA


The student financial aid program at James Sprunt Community College is administered according to the nationally accepted principle that the family (meaning parents or those acting in place of parents, the student, and/or spouse) is responsible for a student’s educational expenses*. Financial aid is available to fill the “gap” between the total cost of education and the amount the family can reasonably be expected to contribute.

* Reasonable educational expenses constitute the student’s educational budget. Expenses included in the student’s educational budget are tuition and fees, room and board, books, supplies, transportation, miscellaneous personal expenses, and expenses related to maintenance of a student’s dependents.

Important information:

  • If your financial aid has not been awarded and ALL required documentation turned in prior to registration day, you will be responsible for payment of your tuition and books. Your financial aid is not complete until ALL documentation has been received. Notification of any missing documents will be mailed to your address on file and emailed to your JSCC student email. Be sure to check this email often.

FA Census Date For Fall: September 3

What Does This Mean?

If you drop or add a course, your enrollment will increase and decrease, however, once the census date passes, your enrollment is “frozen”, meaning if you need to add a course, you will not receive any additional financial aid for that course. For this reason, it is best that you enroll in all courses within the first two weeks of the semester.
