Once you have been awarded, you will be notified through your CCCS email account and your award information will be available online through eWOLF. You will be awarded based on your eligibility and the information you submitted on your FAFSA. What you are awarded will also depend on when you filed your FAFSA and when you submitted the documentation (if any) that was needed by our office for verification.
Tuition & Fees and Your Financial Aid
Take the time to review your student bill, which will be available through eWOLF. Compare your bill to your financial aid awards to make sure you have enough to cover your tuition and fee charges. Use the information available on our Disbursement of Funds page to judge what amount of financial aid will pay toward your charges based on your enrollment. You will typically be awarded either for the Fall & Spring semesters or for the Spring & Summer semesters. The total amount of any award will be split between two semesters so keep that in mind when determining whether you have enough aid to cover tuition and fees.
Tuition and Fees
a negative number means that you can expect a refund
a positive number means that you will still have an outstanding balance
If you still have a positive balance remaining (meaning you owe money) after your financial aid has been deducted, you can learn about the payment options that the Cashiers Office has available for students. Information about how refunds are treated can be reviewed on the Disbursement of Funds page. Please carefully read this because there are circumstances which will affect the amount of financial aid that you can receive.
Terms and Conditions
You will be asked to review and agree to the Terms and Conditions of your financial aid award at Front Range Community College. You can review the information now, but you will need to formally accept online once you have been officially awarded.
What can Change the Amount of Your Award
Even after being awarded, there may be changes that our office will have to make. Below is a list of some of the items, which may result in a change in your eligibility even after you have been awarded:
- You are selected for verification as a result of a change you made to your FAFSA
- You dropped a class after a financial aid disbursement was made and an adjustment is required
- You were reported for "non-attendance" for a class that financial aid either paid for or is scheduled to pay for
- You have been awarded work study funds but have not utilized them
- We are notified by another school that you are receiving aid at their institution
- You receive a 3rd party payment on your behalf
- You receive a scholarship from a 3rd party
FRCC Financial Aid Office recognizes that the Free Application for Student Aid (FAFSA) may not always portray a clear picture of your current financial situation. If the FAFSA does not adequately reflect your current household situation or your financial circumstances have changed since you submitted the FAFSA, there may be an option to reevaluate your financial aid eligibility.
Circumstances that will be considered for a reevaluation could include:
- Loss of employment
- Loss or Reduction of income
- Separation or divorce
- Death of a parent or spouse
- High unreimbursed medical and/or dental expenses
- Change in household size or relationship with parents
If you would like to see if your circumstances qualify, please submit the professional judgement request form. If you’d like more information on the professional judgement process, we encourage you to contact our office to discuss this process with a Financial Aid Advisor by calling, emailing, or visiting any campus location.
