Apply for Student Loans

IMPORTANT UPDATES FOR 2013-2014

In accordance with our default prevention management plan SFCC has implemented the following requirements for student loan borrowers beginning with the 2013-2014 academic year.

  • Students applying for a student loan must have all previous college transcripts in the Registrar’s Office before submitting the loan application. Evaluation of transcripts can change loan eligibility if a student has not completed the last two semesters at a previous institution.
  • Students must be registered in courses from their current primary declared degree program to be eligible for student loans. HPER courses will not count towards loan eligibility.

It is your responsibility to follow up on your application status. To proceed with the loan application process, click on the following links:

Spring loan application available through May 2, 2014.
