Applying for Financial Aid

Our adult students are sometimes surprised to find out that they qualify for financial aid.  Check out A Financial Aid Guide for School of Continuing Education Students, Important SCE Financial Aid Facts, and Prehealth Certificate information to better help you navigate financial matters here at the College.



Once your FAFSA has been submitted and processed and the U.S. Department of Education has sent you a Student Aid Report (SAR) please read the comment section very carefully. If there is an issue with the application (i.e. missing signature, citizenship confirmation) it will be outlined in this section and these issues must too be resolved in order to determine a student’s eligibility.​
