Financial Aid

You may think you can’t afford to go to college, but you can’t afford not to attend college. The only thing more expensive than a college degree is not getting one. The Financial Aid Office is here to help.

The primary purpose of financial aid is to provide financial resources to students who are otherwise unable to pursue a college degree. The SCC Financial Aid Office makes every effort ethically and consistently to meet demonstrated student financial need.  While the primary financial responsibility rests with the student and his/her family, every effort is made to provide necessary supplemental funding so that no deserving student is denied the opportunity to attend SCC because of financial limitations.

The links below provide valuable information that you need to know when completing the financial aid process and also while you are receiving financial aid.  If you have any questions, contact the Financial Aid Office at 910-695-3743.
