Financial Assistance Handbook

SCC Students

Today, more than ever, there are a wide variety of financial assistance programs to accommodate every student who wishes to attend a college or university. These programs are available through federal, state and local sources. To help you make the most of these resources, we have provided this handbook.

Here, you will find basic information about each program and regulatory policies. For more details or to apply for programs, contact Enrollment Services at 636-922-8270. We also recommend that you review the college catalog for information on academic programs and college policies and procedures.

Fast Facts about Financial Aid at SCC

  • Failure to attend class does not constitute automatic withdrawal. If you decide not to attend class(es) at SCC, you MUST complete a withdrawal form in the Enrollment Services Department. Failure to do so may result in money owed by the student to the college or to the Department of Education, as well as warning or suspension from financial assistance eligibility.
  • It is your responsibility to submit any changes in name, phone numbers and address to the Enrollment Services Department. Your file must be current in the event we need to contact you throughout the semester.
  • Bookstore credit approvals will be available before the start of classes and may be used in the bookstore through the first week of classes. Bookstore credits, for most financial assistance programs, will be available from the bookstore. If your bookstore credit is not available at the time you purchase your books, contact Enrollment Services.
  • Photo IDs and parking hang-tags will be issued by the Department of Public Safety and will be available in the Cafe-Bookstore during peak registration periods.
