View your awarded financial aid on WebOPUS once our office processes your FAFSA.
FLC mails official award letters for the upcoming school year to incoming first-year students and emails them to continuing students' FLC email accounts starting in January .
Once you receive your aid award, you must read the "Terms & Conditions" and then accept (or decline) the aid on your WebOPUS account.
Students accepting a Federal Direct Loan offer for the first time at FLC must complete loan entrance counseling and a master promissory note.
Accepting aid and completing all requirements must happen for aid to disburse.
Aid not disbursed by the Census Date of the first term you begin the academic year may get canceled (excluding Pell Grant and Federal Direct Loans.)
Parents who want to borrow a Federal Direct Parent PLUS loan must:
Parents need to be sure they are using their FSA ID and password and not the student's FSA ID and password when completing the above steps.
Your credit hours affect your aid disbursement.
Undergraduates must enroll in at least 12 credit hours per term for most types of aid to be disbursed (Graduate students: 9+ credits is full-time, 6-8 is ¾ time, 4-5 is ½ time).
Undergraduates enrolling in less than 12 credit hours must notify the Financial Aid Office in writing before the term starts for their aid to disburse according to enrolled hours. If this doesn't happen, the student's aid adjusts to the credit hours they enrolled in on Census, and then the aid will disburse.
About one week before the semester begins (or once you've completed your financial aid file), financial aid will automatically apply to your bill.
Our office generates a refund to the student or parent for the difference if the aid package exceeds the student's bill. Students can get their refunds the week before a semester begins in a direct deposit if they've already established a direct deposit or sent to their mailing address on file.
