FINANCIAL AID FOR SUMMER 2017: Financial aid for the 2017 summer term is based on the 2016-2017 FAFSA. Financial Aid for the summer will not be processed unless you are registered for a summer term (Summer A, 10 week Summer, Summer B). If you have eligibility for the Federal Pell Grant, it will be awarded automatically to registered students. Loans for the summer will only be awarded to students who have remaining eligibility, will be enrolled at least half time, and who complete and submit a Summer 2017 Federal Subsidized/Unsubsidized Direct Loan Request Form. Please be aware of the due date of your summer charges. In order to have your summer charges deferred, you must submit the Summer Direct Loan Request Form at least 5 days prior to your payment due date. [NOTE: If your charges are greater than the amount of your Summer Direct Loan, you will be responsible for paying the balance by your payment due date.]
If, after the end of the 2017 spring semester, you are not meeting the Financial Aid Satisfactory Academic Progress requirements, your summer financial aid will be canceled.
The deadline for submitting the Summer Direct Loan Request Form is June 16, 2017 for students who are registered for any classes in the Summer A and/or 10 week Summer term. The deadline for submitting the Summer Direct Loan Request Form is July 28, 2017 for students who are registered only in all Summer B term classes.
The FSA ID (a username and password) has replaced the Federal Student Aid PIN and must be used to log in to U.S. Department of Education websites. Your FSA ID confirms your identity when you access your financial aid information and electronically sign Federal Student Aid documents. If you do not already have an FSA ID, you can create one when logging in to fafsa.gov, the National Student Loan Data System at www.nslds.ed.gov, studentloans.gov, studentaid.gov, and Agreement to Serve (ATS) at www.teach-ats.ed.gov. You can obtain information on how to create an FSA ID here.

Your decision to attend college is an important one. It is an investment in your future, and involves a considerable commitment of time and money. Daytona State College provides a wide variety of quality educational programs at reasonable costs.
Financial aid is available to help eligible students meet educational expenses. This aid is provided through the federal government, state government, or through private sources and may consist of grants, scholarships, loans, or work.
Applying for financial aid is not as complicated as you might think. The important thing to remember is to take it one step at a time and plan in advance. The process consists of completing the appropriate applications and submitting requested documentation to the Financial Aid office. To apply for financial aid, you first need to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at www.fafsa.gov. Once you have completed the FAFSA, you can check the status of outstanding and received paperwork on the portal (on the Daytona State College home page, click on the MyDaytonaState link to access the portal).
