Step 2

Complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). In order to complete this application you (and your parents, if you are a dependent student) will need to apply for a FSA ID. You will need to list SCC's school code 008304 on your FAFSA application. The priority deadline is July 1st prior to the start of the Fall semester, November 1st prior to the start of the Spring semester and April 1st prior to the start of the Summer semester. Applications received by SCC after these dates will still be considered for aid, but the student may not be awarded until after the start of the semester. Students who file the FAFSA and submit all requested follow up paperwork after the priority date should be prepared to use their own funds to pay their tuition and fees prior to the payment deadline. Students can set up a payment plan and should be prepared to make all payments while their financial aid application is being processed.

If you plan on attending Fall 2018, Spring 2019, or Summer 2019 complete the 2018-2019 FAFSA.
