At SFCC, we believe every student who wants to go to college should be able to do so. That’s why we work hard to help you afford the cost of your education. There are scholarships, grants, campus jobs and loan programs — all available to help pay your college expenses.
Loan Eligibility Requirements: In accordance with our Default Prevention Management Plan, SFCC has implemented the following requirements for student loan borrowers:
- 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 link:
