Important Dates for Summer and Fall 2017:

May 1 - SCC's Priority Deadline for filing the FAFSA for next year. This allows necessary time for processing and collecting documentation, so awards can be in place when tuition is due. The FAFSA has been open since Oct. 1, 2016, and please note that earlier applicants sometimes receive more funds.  
June 29- Grant, scholarship and loan refund checks for the Summer will be mailed out by June 29, 2017.
July 31- Fall tuition is due by 5 p.m. for students who registered between April 4, 2017 and June 30, 2017.  Students who have not been awarded financial aid need to make payment by this deadline, so classes are not dropped for non-payment.
August 7- If you are a recipient of financial aid in the Fall, you may begin charging your books to financial aid at the SCC Bookstore.  Please look at your award letter on your WebAdvisor to see your award amount.
August 11- Fall tuition is due by NOON for students who registered between July 1, 2017 and August 11, 2017. Students who have not been awarded financial aid need to make payment by this deadline, so classes are not dropped for non-payment.
