Visiting students

As a visiting student enrolling at SCC you are not eligible to receive financial aid at SCC, but you could receive financial aid at your home institution with a consortium agreement. Not all schools will recognize a consortium agreement, so you need to contact your home institution to see if it is an option.  For additional information regarding enrollment as a visiting student at SCC, please go to Visiting Students

You are required to be familiar with the information in the Financial Aid Handbook prior to receiving financial assistance at SCC.
