awarding for each aid year typically begin in april. if your application has been completed, you have submitted all requested documentation, and we have processed your financial aid record, you will receive an award email to your icc student email.
if you are awarded for the fall and spring semester, your award for the federal pell grant, the fseog grant and federal direct subsidized/unsubsidized loans will be based on full time enrollment (12+ credit hours). the state of illinois map grant is based on 15 credit hours of enrollment. all grants are prorated based on actual level of enrollment at the time of disbursement.
summer award notifications are processed after the student has enrolled in summer classes. if the student is only eligible for a student loan, the student must complete the icc federal direct loan acceptance form to begin processing financial aid for the summer semester.
