FAFSA (FREE APPLICATION FOR FEDERAL STUDENT AID)

Federal aid is awarded only to undergraduate students who have not earned a bachelor’s or professional degree.

To receive Federal funding, a student must first complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at http://www.fafsa.gov/. Documents needed to complete this free application are the most recent federal tax returns and W2 forms. Once the application has been processed by the Department of Education, the student should access their SSCC Oline Account to view their financial aid status.
