You are strongly encouraged to submit all requested documentation by the financial aid deadline in order to receive a timely award with all possible funding. Delays in submitting your verification documentation will cause delays in the processing of your financial aid. Failure to submit all requested documentation will result in the forfeiture of your financial aid eligibility. If you are relying on financial aid to pay your tuition and fees, you must complete the verification process prior to enrollment.
Savannah Technical College requires that verification be completed before disbursing aid for the Federal Pell Grant, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant, Federal Work-Study, and Federal Direct Subsidized and Unsubsidized Loans.
We will continue to process verification documentation in the order it is received. However, the verification review process can take up to 3 weeks to complete. Delays in filing the FAFSA and submitting verification documentation will delay the processing of your financial aid. You may need to make arrangements to pay out of pocket until your financial aid is processed.
According to federal regulations, the last date to submit verification documents is the last day of the term or your last day of enrollment in the academic year, whichever is earlier.
- Federal Pell Grant Recipients: The deadline is 120 days from your last date of enrollment, or August 31, or whichever comes first. This includes making any necessary corrections to the FAFSA, submitting those corrections to the federal processor, and receiving confirmation in return.
How to Avoid Verification Processing Delays
- We strongly recommend that you submit ALL documents at one time as quickly as possible. The verification process can take up to three weeks to complete.
- Print your name and 9-digit STC ID number on each page of the documents that you submit.
- Remember to make photocopies for your records.
