Financial Aid Office


At SCCC, we offer a range of scholarships to support our students. If you’re unfamiliar with scholarships, they are a form of financial assistance that doesn’t require repayment. Scholarships are granted to students based on their merit, which can include academic performance, leadership skills, or community service. It’s important to note that each scholarship has its own set of criteria, and students must remain aware of these criteria to continue receiving the benefits.

Institutional Scholarships

Institutional scholarships are funded by various donors through the Foundation Office. These scholarships are available to students who meet specific eligibility criteria, such as academic achievement, financial need, or enrollment in a particular program or major. Applying for institutional scholarships can significantly reduce the cost of tuition and fees, making college more affordable for students. It’s important to carefully review the requirements and deadlines for each scholarship and to submit a complete and compelling application. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to invest in your future – apply for institutional scholarships today!
