Important News regarding the 2024-2025 FAFSA®

Department of Education announced there are delays in transferring your completed FAFSA® application to colleges/universities. After you complete and submit your FAFSA®, you will receive an email acknowledgement from Federal Student Aid (sent to the email address you used for FAFSA®). However, our office will not receive your application, see any of your submitted FAFSA®  information, or advise on aid eligibility until a later time (currently estimated to be in March 2024).

In the meantime, SCC Financial Aid staff are here to assist you.
