How to Apply

First Time FAFSA Applicants

  1. Apply to ICC
  2. Apply for a Federal Student Aid account (dependent students parents must apply as well)

FAFSA Application

Students must submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) every year you wish to receive financial aid.

ICC’s school code is #006753


The application process begins on October 1 and the priority deadline for ICC is March 1. FAFSA applications completed by March 1 will have priority consideration for the FSEOG and FWS Grants.

Random Selection For Verification

Approximately four days after you have submitted your FAFSA to the federal processor, you will receive a Student Aid Report (SAR) via e-mail. Some applications are selected for verification, which is indicated on your Student Aid Report, and the Expected Family Contribution (EFC) number on your SAR may be flagged with an asterisk (*).

  1. ICC will verify your information provided to FAFSA.
  2. You will receive an email notification to your ICC student email letting you know to check your MyICC To-Do list.
  3. You must submit documents on your To-Do list before ICC can continue processing your application.
  4. Your file will be reviewed and completed.
  5. You will receive a financial aid award notification in your ICC email.
