Your Financial Aid Awards

Eligibility for financial aid is determined through the analysis of your student aid application and the cost of attendance at Carl Sandburg College. Your award is based on full-time enrollment and will be adjusted at the time of enrollment.
We reserve the right to modify your award(s) at any time due to changes in your financial aid eligibility or on the availability of funding.

If you wish to decline any awards or if you receive additional sources of aid, you must notify our office in writing. If aid from outside sources causes you to exceed your calculated “financial need”, we are required to reduce your FWS, SEOG, or Direct Loan.

Always check mySandburg for the most updated award amounts to use as a reference whenever you have questions about your financial aid package and to provide to agencies that may ask for your summary of awards being received.
