What's New?

The Spring 2021 Bookstore Allowance process will begin on Monday, January 11. Students will receive an email from the Business Office when an allowance is available. All emails are sent to students’ Q-mail accounts.

Are you a QCC student facing financial stress due to the COVID-19 crisis? You may be eligible for an Emergency Grant

Students can now agree to their Credit Balance Authorization electronically. When you login to The Q, a pop up appears and you can either “agree” or “disagree” to allow QCC to apply your financial aid to all charges on your bill. You can agree even if you do not currently have financial aid, but may in the future as this agreement is active for the duration of your enrollment at QCC.

There are currently 2 FAFSA's available:

  • Complete the 2020-2021 FAFSA (based on 2018 income) to apply for Fall 2020, Spring 2021 & Summer 2021
  • Complete the 2021-2021 FAFSA (based on 2019 income) to apply for Fall 2021, Spring 2022 & Summer 2022
Fall refund checks will begin being mailed on October 28 and weekly thereafter. Students will receive an email to their Qmail account when a check is ready. The College is not currently providing in-person services to the public at this time because of COVID-19. Therefore, we will mail your check to your address on file with the College.
The Financial Aid Office is pleased to offer you the ability to submit your documents electronically in a secure environment. Visit our Financial Aid Document Center!
