It is the goal of Seminole State College to make quality higher education accessible to all qualified students. To meet this commitment, financial assistance is available in the form of scholarships, grants, loans, and part-time employment. The factors considered in determining the types and amounts of aid received by an applicant are; Availability of funds, Student's analyzed financial need, Student's academic discipline/performance record, Timely completion of students' financial aid file. Most, but not all, financial assistance is based upon need. Need is the difference between what a family can reasonably be expected to pay toward the cost of education and the actual college expenses. This need in determined through the use of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
In order to apply for financial aid:
- All students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid beginning October 1st of each year. Apply over the Internet at http://www.fafsa.ed.gov . For students without Internet access, computers are available outside the Financial Aid Office located in the Student Services Building.
