Before completing the Free Application For Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), the Financial Aid Office suggests you go to Tips for filing the FAFSA and the FASFA filing instructions for additional background and help.
1. File the FAFSA
SCC School Code is 008466.
Our priority deadline is May 1 of each year. However, FAFSAs received after this date will still be processed. It can take up to 2-3 weeks for SCC to receive your FAFSA results, so apply as early as you can after January 1 (non-tax filers) or (tax filers) February 1 of each year.
2. Apply to an eligible program at SCC
3. Review your Student Aid Report (SAR)
4. Send Requested Documents to the SCC Financial Aid Office
In order to receive federal grants, state grants, loans, work-study, and most scholarships, you have to file the FAFSA. You only need to submit the FAFSA once per academic year.
