Viewing Financial Aid Awards
This job aid will go over the process of viewing your financial aid awards on the Student College Dashboard.
|1.||Log into your mySDCCD account using your ID and password. Click Sign In.|
|2.||On the main navigation page, click on the Student Self Service tile. |
The main dashboard will display.
The My Financial Aid section will display in the bottom left hand corner. Scroll down on your browser to view the entire section.
On this student's example, there are two aid years listed on his portal: 2017-18 and 2018-19.
This student did not receive a financial aid award for 2017-18. For this example, click on 2018-19 to switch tabs. Your Financial Aid pagelet may only have one year showing as the 2018-2019 aid year will be the first year in the new system.
On the 2018-19 tab, note the three separate terms to be viewed: Fall 2018, Spring 2019, and Summer 2019.
For Fall 2018, this student received a total of $552 to be distributed during the first week of classes in September. Under the award, the student's College of Record, Satisfactory Academic Progress and Residency Status are listed.
Click on Spring 2019 to view the award for next semester.
Pell Awards are disbursed twice a semester for California Resident students and once a semester for Non-Residents. If you see two rows for the Pell Grant, that means you will receive two separate disbursements of your Pell Grant.
