FAFSA applications can be filed at studentaid.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.
SCC Scholarships Deadline will be announced each year when the online scholarship application system opens for all SCC Foundation Scholarships.
