Financial Aid Award Letter

Your DCC award letter will include all aid awards you have been offered to date. Once you receive your notification of award from Dawson Community College, log into your MyInfo account at Dawson.edu and review it carefully. You may accept all or part of your financial aid award as directed on the award tab. 

Your acceptance indicates that you understand and accept the rules and conditions affecting your financial aid. Check the number of credits you told us you would take each semester. Report any changes in residency, enrollment, your name, and/or address.

If you have a source of educational funding that is not listed on the award letter, inform us either via email at finaid@dawson.edu or in writing. Examples of additional funding that must be reported include Vocational Rehabilitation, Veteran’s Benefits, Tribal grants or loans, all scholarships, stipends, and grants. If you learn about additional funding after you have returned your award letter, you are required to notify the Financial Aid Office in writing as soon as possible.

Steps to Viewing Award Letter & Completing Award Acceptance in MyInfo

  1. Go to MyInfo login located on the bottom of www.dawson.edu webpage
  2. Enter your ID and PIN and click “Login”
  3. Select “Financial Aid” tab
  4. Select "Award"
  5. Select “Award for Aid Year" - there are other options on this screen, but this selection is the one you want.
  6. Select the current school year “20xx – 20xx” Aid Year from the Dropdown Box and click "Submit".
  7. The next screen is the "General Information Tab" Here you can choose to view separately your "Accept Award Offer" and/or your "Resources/Additional Information".
  8. You will need to click on "Terms and Conditions" in order to proceed to the actual aid acceptance step. This tab will contain the terms and conditions you will need to accept before you can proceed. Keep in mind that accepting the terms does not mean that you are accepting what has been offered, only that you understand what your responsibilities will be if you accept aid on the next screen.
  9. Once the "Terms and Conditions" are accepted the "Accept Award Offer" becomes available. This tab is where you'll be able to accept the types and amounts of aid you would like.
    1. Keep in mind that if you accept any loans, there will be unsatisfied requirements. The requirements should immediately post to the bottom of the screen. They can also be found under the "View Satisfied and Unsatisfied Requirements" option on the "My Eligibility" link of the "Financial Aid" tab. Students who accept loans must do Loan Entrance Counseling. If you have not already completed your Master Promissory Note, you will need to do that as well.
