 COVID-19: Financial Aid

​(Updated 3/30/20. This information is subject to change.)

Dear Students,

Please know that we are working diligently to support you during this time. We are committed and prepared to support you remotely during the Shelter-In-Place order.  Please be patient – we will respond! 

COVID-19 current news & Shasta college


Withdrawal from courses:

Before you withdraw from any classes, please read the following information about alternatives to withdrawals, excuses withdrawals & financial aid impact:  Withdrawals & Financial Aid.pdf

Regular disbursements of financial aid (grants/loans):
These will continue according to our published disbursement schedule as closely as possible.  Due to unforeseen difficulties or staffing issues, there may be a slight delay, but we will do everything in our power to keep to the schedule.

Work Study - losing hours due to campus closure:
The federal Department of Education allows campuses to continue paying work study students when the campus is closed due to natural disasters or other emergencies.  You will continue to be paid for the hours you would have worked while the campus is closed. Contact Melian Manas for details at mmanas@shastacollege.edu.​

California College Promise Grant​ (CCPG)
(Formerly called "BOG Fee Waiver") for Summer & Fall 2020 and Spring 2021
We have posted CCPG fee waivers to your 2020-21 financial aid award letter if you were deemed eligible from the FAFSA, CA DREAM Act, and the online CCPG application.  Students will NOT be dropped for non-payment of the campus/health center fees ($34.50 for summer, $41.50 for fall).

Federal Direct Loans for 2019-20
We are finished processing all loans applications that were submitted through February 29.  If you submitted a loan application prior to that date, an email was sent to you at the time it was reviewed that gave you information on either your eligibility status or items needed to finish a review of your eligibility. If you have questions, please refer back to your email and read it carefully​​.

20-21 Award Letters:
Our goal was to have that information to you the week of March 16th.  Due to campus closures, these will be delayed approximately two weeks, but we are working on those! We apologize for the delay, but we have insured that the CCPG has been posted to your award letter so that you can move forward with summer registration. ​

Scholarships​
Scholarship awards for Spring 2020: We are continuing to process scholarships awards for Spring 2020.

Scholarship processing for 2020-21: Normally, scholarship awards are finalized by mid-May.  Given the situation, we are working to make scholarship decisions by mid-June. Our scholarship reviewers are largely faculty, and we want their focus to be on their courses, especially those classes that are moving online.
