Financial Aid Assistance
The deadline to submit the FAFSA is approaching on March 2nd. Get your application in now! The Race to Submit is on. Let's do better than we did last year with submissions. The only way to get free money is to apply!
If you need assistance with completing your FAFSA/Dream Act, SCC can help- regardless of where you are attending next year for college. If you would like one on one assistance with completing your financial aid application, reach out to Griselda Morones to schedule an appointment.
Remember, tuition is FREE to all community colleges for ALL students, but ONLY if you fill out a financial aid application. To qualify for a Cal Grant, you must also complete an application. GPA's have already been submitted by VPHS on your behalf for the Cal Grant GPA.
