Over Award Policy

Federal and state regulations mandate that a student’s total financial aid package (grants and other resources) cannot exceed the student’s financial need. Financial need is defined as Cost of Attendance minus Expected Family Contribution (EFC calculated by your FAFSA). Once a student has been selected as a scholarship Recipient, the office of Student Financial Services must ensure that the student is not over awarded. An overaward occurs when the student’s financial aid package exceeds his or her financial need.

Requirements for Checks:

All external scholarship checks should be made payable to South Texas College. Include the student name and ID Number. Send to:
