      3. Incomplete applications will be kept on file for 30 days.  After the 30 day period, incomplete applications will be purged and the students will need to reapply.
      4. The SFSC Recruitment Office will track incomplete college applications and follow up with those students who have an incomplete application or an unpaid admissions application fee.
