1. Complete an Admissions application online and begin the admissions process
  2. Submit a FAFSA online after January 1st each year. YCCC’s  school code is 031229 and the priority filing date is by May 1st. Students are awarded on a first-come first-serve basis and on the availability of funding.
  3. After your FAFSA has been submitted, the YCCC Financial Aid Office (FAO) should receive it and send you a notification within 1 to 2 weeks. Some students may be selected for a process called Verification, or a mini audit of your FAFSA application, and you’ll be asked to submit documentation to the FAO in order to complete your file. Once a student’s file is complete, he/she will be awarded on 1st come 1st serve basis, and mailed an award notification offer that the student will be required to act upon. These are the types of financial aid we offer:YCCC financial aid programs .
  4. Review your YCCC Financial Aid Award letter and keep track of your financial aid online via MyYCCC or Netpartner.
