YOUR FINANCIAL AID AWARDS
Eligibility for financial aid is determined through the analysis of the student aid application and the cost of education at Carl Sandburg College. Awards are based on full-time enrollment and will be adjusted at the time of enrollment. We reserve the right to modify award(s) at any time due to changes in your financial aid eligibility or on the availability of funding.
Always check mySandburg for the most updated award amounts to use as a reference whenever questions arise about the financial aid package. mySandburg can also be used to print a copy of the student's award notification for outside agencies.
AWARD NOTIFICATIONThe Award Notification shows the types and amounts of financial assistance students are expected to receive at Carl Sandburg College. To understand your award notification be sure to read all the information carefully.
Grants are gift aid that does not need to be repaid. Loans require repayment. If your award includes “EST” in the name, it is estimated and could change.
CHANGES, CORRECTIONS OR SPECIAL CONDITIONS
Corrections or changes to the information you originally submitted on your FAFSA may result in a revision to your financial aid award. If you have unusual circumstances (i.e. loss of job, death of parent, etc.) that were not reported on the FAFSA, or if your family's situation has changed since you completed your application, contact our Financial Aid Office at 309.341.5283.
