Financial Aid Application Process

Students that need financial assistance should contact their high school guidance counselor or the SCC Financial Aid Office for information.

  1. All applicants must complete the SCC admission application, including submission of an official copy of a high school transcript showing graduation, and/or a GED.
  2. Applicants must complete the financial aid application, Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), at studentaid.ed.gov/fafsa. To complete the FAFSA, students will need to have income information, such as federal tax returns, W-2 wage statements, and records of benefits received from sources such as child support and disability for the requested tax year. Students will be notified by the central processor by email within two to three days. Students without email will be mailed a paper response within 10 days.
  3. Applicants who are selected for verification will be required to submit additional satisfactory documentation to verify information reported on the FAFSA.
  4. When all forms have been received by the SCC Financial Aid Office, the office will send students an offer letter indicating the type and amount of aid offered.
