Financial Aid Deadlines
The academic year at SCC consists of the Fall, Spring, and Summer semesters. You may have to choose your academic year on the FAFSA.

2019-2020 -- Fall 2019, Spring 2020, Summer 2020

FAFSA Deadlines:

The U.S. Department of Education will now begin processing FAFSAs starting in October each year and ending in June, 21 months later. Example: For the 2019-2020 academic year, the Department of Education will process from Oct. 1, 2018, until June 30, 2020. A student needs to file only one time for each academic year. FAFSA applications can be filed at fafsa.ed.gov

SCC has set Priority Deadlines to ensure that students file in time to allow processing and awarding before the start of each semester. SCC students need to file their FAFSAs by the following dates:

  • May 1 – students starting the next Fall
  • September 30 – students starting the next Spring
  • February 15 – students starting the next Summer

FAFSAs filed after these deadlines WILL be processed as soon as possible, but delays may cause eligible students to be awarded after the semester has begun.

Scholarship Deadlines

SCC Scholarships Deadline will be announced each year when the online scholarship application system opens for all SCC Foundation Scholarships.

  • The 2019-20 scholarship application closed on April 26, 2019. Students will be able to access the application again in the Spring of 2020.
