Frequently Asked Questions

Can I save my application and come back later?

Yes! You may save your General Scholarship Application or individual scholarship application. Scholarship opportunities that have been saved will show as “Drafted” on the “Home” tab.


I completed the General Application and I do not have Import Information.

DCCCD information is imported several times per week. If this is your first time filling out an application, we encourage you to review your application for imported information the next business day.


I reviewed my Import information and information is incorrect. How do I correct the information?

You cannot make updates to the imported DCCCD information directly on your application. You must contact the Admissions/Registrar's Office at the college you plan to attend if you have concerns about your information.


How can I tell if my reference has submitted the letter?

Once you sign in, please click the Home tab, and then “Manage References” box. You have the option to resend your request for a reference.


Can I change my reference contact?

Yes. Sign in to your application and click on “Manage References.” You can resend a request for reference or enter a new reference.


How can I see the scholarship opportunities that I was automatically matched to?

Students are only able to review the scholarships for which they supplied additional information and submitted an application. Students may see scholarships that do not require additional action by clicking the “ALL” tab to review criteria.


Do I need to complete the FAFSA?

Some scholarships awarded through this competitive application process require the recipient to show financial need as determined by the annual Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). All newly admitted and continuing DCCCD students are encouraged to complete the FAFSA, regardless of family income. There is no application fee, and the eligibility information received from the application will assist with budgeting for educational related expenses.

Complete the FAFSA online at fafsa.gov.


Why does my Estimated Family Contribution (EFC) say 99999?

For all students that DCCCD has not received a FAFSA, the EFC will have the default value of 99999. Once DCCCD has received the appropriate FAFSA information, the EFC will updated automatically.


Why is my fall (or spring) enrollment blank?

This information will be populated automatically with your Fall and Spring enrollment once you have registered.


When will I know if I have been awarded?

If you are offered a scholarship, you will see a status beside scholarship applications on the “Home” tab displayed as “Offered.” You will also receive an email notifying you of such to the email address on file (and which you have used to log in).
