FAFSA Status

Financial Aid

FAFSA and Self Service Aiken

Students who complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) can view the status of the application in their Self Service Aiken account. Sign in using your VIP ID and password.

Be sure to complete your FAFSA as soon as possible to be considered for the best aid package and to allow for timely notification of your eligibility. Also, you must provide any additional information we need before awards can be made. You can check the status of your FAFSA and review any outstanding requirements on SSC. 

You no longer have to manually apply your financial aid to your account balance. Financial aid automatically applies once disbursed to your student account if you have completed all requirements with the Office of Financial Aid.
