The first day of classes for the Fall semester are rapidly approaching! If you have not done your FAFSA, you need to complete it ASAP! If you have not requested your high school and any previous college transcripts to be sent to our institution, do so ASAP! The closer it gets to August 16th the busier our office becomes. The turn around time from you filling out your FAFSA to our office awarding your financial aid can be anywhere from 3 to 6 weeks.
You're not alone when it comes to student loans. SCCC/ATS has partnered with Inceptia, a division of National Student Loan Program (NSLP), to provide you with FREE assistance on your Federal student loan obligations to ensure successful, and comfortable, loan repayment. Inceptia's friendly customer representatives may reach out to you during your grace period to answer questions you have about your loan obligation and/or repayment options. They may also contact you if your loan(s) become delinquent. Inceptia is not a collection agency. We've partnered with them to help you explore a wide variety of possibilities such as alternative repayment plans, deferment, consolidation, discharge, forgiveness, and forbearance options. Inceptia will stay in touch with you via phone calls, letters, and/or emails to help you find answers to your questions and solutions to your issues.
One of our goals in the Financial Aid Office is to help our students understand how to spend, save, and invest money wisely. We want to encourage everyone to look at a website that Inceptia has given us access to, called Financial Avenue. (See link at the bottom of the page) This website has financial literacy courses, articles, and videos to help students better understand how to manage their money. If you have not set up an account on Financial Avenue and have trouble doing so, please call Shannon at 620-417-1113.
NIGHT CLASSES BEGIN ON MONDAY, AUGUST 15th, WITH DAY CLASSES BEGINNING TUESDAY, AUGUST 16TH. IF YOUR FINANCIAL AID HAS BEEN AWARDED, YOU CAN CHECK WITH OUR CASHIER'S OFFICE TO SEE IF YOU ARE ABLE TO GET A BOOK VOUCHER, WHICH WILL ALLOW YOU TO USE YOUR FINANCIAL AID TO PURCHASE YOUR BOOKS IN THE BOOKSTORE. IF YOUR AID HAS NOT BEEN PROCESSED, YOU WILL NEED TO MAKE ARRANGEMENTS TO PURCHASE YOUR BOOKS UNTIL YOU HAVE BEEN AWARDED.

THINGS TO REMEMBER:
IF YOU THINK YOU NEED TO DROP ANY CLASSES DURING THE SEMESTER, PLEASE FIRST CHECK WITH YOUR ACADEMIC ADVISOR AND THEN CHECK WITH OUR OFFICE TO SEE HOW THIS MIGHT AFFECT YOUR FINANCIAL AID.
In the academic year of 2016-2017, students wanting to take out a student loan must first be awarded a student loan. This is done through completing a 2016-2017 FAFSA to determine how much you may be eligible to receive; and our office checking your academic eligibility. When you are notified of your financial aid awards, a Loan Acceptance Form will be mailed to you. The form needs to be turned in to the Office of Financial Aid in person before the loan will be processed. If you have lost yours, click here to print the form. If you have any questions regarding this, please contact our office at 620-417-1110.
PLEASE NOTE: SCCC does not certify outside loans.
