Checking the Status of a Financial Aid Application
Completing the FAFSA is just the first step in the application process.
Log on to MyECC 3-5 business days after submitting your FAFSA.
Regularly check “MyDocuments” to find out if you need to submit any documents to the Financial Aid Office.
Click on “Communications” then select “MyDocuments”
Locate and print the exact forms you need to turn in – all online!
Print forms from www.elcamino.edu/studentservices/fao/
Click on “Forms”
The Financial Aid office will process your file 8-14 weeks from the date you submit all of your documents. Please check your documents for completeness and accuracy.
If no documents are requested, then the Financial Aid office will process your file 8-14 weeks from the date you submitted your FAFSA and an Award Letter will be generated and available on your MyECC.
4-5 weeks after the date of your Award Letter, a disbursement will be mailed to the address on file in the Admissions and Records office OR deposited to your Sallie Mae Debit Card. Please note your Award Letter is estimated and subject to change based on enrollment and program eligibility standards.
