Pending Financial Aid

Pending financial aid is aid that has been awarded but has not been disbursed. You should compare your financial aid award to your bill to ensure you have enough to cover your outstanding balance. Remember, financial aid is awarded based on a full-time schedule (12+ credits). If you are registered for less than 12 credits, your aid will be adjusted at the time of disbursement. Different types of aid have different credit requirements, please see our Financial Aid Programs page for a full list of requirements. Financial Aid is disbursed after the semester has started and attendance has been verified.

If you have a student loan, you must complete the loan acceptance process before it can be disbursed. You will be notified by mail and STCC email about your next steps.

If you have financial aid remaining after subtracting your bill, you may use these funds to buy your books and supplies in the form of a voucher (on your Ram Card), at the campus bookstore during specific dates. For more information please see our Book Store Vouchers/Allowances.
