If this is your first time to submit a financial aid appeal and it has been approved, you are required to complete a financial literacy component. To complete the financial literacy component online, you must register for the PFE course and complete all five modules in Blackboard, San Jacinto College’s course management system. Failure to complete all five financial literacy modules in Blackboard will result in your suspension at the end of the term. Blackboard can be accessed over the internet and does not require you to install any software on your computer.
Instructions for Logging in and enrolling in the online course:
- Login into Blackboard.
- You will need to enter your username and password to log in (your student ID and the password created for SOS).
- If this is your first visit, you will need to enroll in the Blackboard online course. Instructions are listed below under Assistance.
- Please note:
- If you are a new student for Summer 2020, your Blackboard access will not be available until classes begin on June 1, 2020. If you have not attended in over a year and had to reapply for admission for Summer 2020, you will not have access to Blackboard until classes begin on June 1, 2019.

Completing the Assignments:

Your financial aid file will be updated each Monday when you have completed all five lessons and all five quizzes successfully.
