Awarding financial aid is a process and does take time, so please start right away! Now is the time to complete the 2023-2024 FAFSA. Remember that the FAFSA is always FREE.
FAFSA – ECCC’s School Code is 002404

FINANCIAL AID PRIORITY DATE IS APRIL 1!
THE SOONER YOU COMPLETE YOUR FAFSA, THE BETTER. All Federally funded aid requires the completion of the FAFSA yearly. We have computers and personnel located in our office and are happy to provide assistance with the application process. The application is available each year beginning on October 1 at www.fafsa.gov. Students who complete their FAFSA by the priority deadline of April 1 with East Central's school code (002404) will be reviewed and processed first and should be awarded before the first day of school as long as the following requirements have been met: you are registered for classes, have met all Admissions requirements, and have submitted all verification documents, as needed, to Financial Aid.
