Viewing your financial aid status
Students can access their financial aid information on the Student Information System (SIS). To get to SIS, follow these steps:
- Log in to Blackboard and select
VCCS SIS: Student Information System
- Once on the SIS, Click Self Service ⇒ Student Center ⇒ View Financial Aid.
- Click the desired Aid Year. For 2012-2013 academic year the Aid Year is 2013. You will see anticipated aid which assumes that you are enrolled full-time (12 credits). If you are enrolled less than full-time, the anticipated aid will be decreased proportionally to actual aid after the second week of classes. If the actual amount is not enough to pay all tuition, you must pay the balance before the third week of classes.
Please note these are the dates that we send the awards to the Business Office; the dates are subject to change. The Business Office runs their processes before sending the file to the Department of the Treasury in Richmond. Richmond has up to ten business days to process the file. Please remember that all FA checks are mailed from Richmond. It may take 10-14 days from the disbursement date for you to receive your refund. Click to view dates of disbursement.
