Scholarships and Tuition Waivers
The first step to awarding aid is to determine your need, using your Educational Expenses minus your Expected Family Contribution (EFC) and outside resources. The EFC is determined when you submit your FAFSA.
Pell Grants are awarded before other awards or loans. If eligible, your Pell Grant will be based on your expected number of enrolled credit hours and EFC.
Next, we award other grants (federal, state and institutional). Funds are limited, so most are awarded to students who’ve complete applications by the priority dates. SLCC limits your grants to two types of grant aid per aid year.
Federal Work Study, Perkins Loans and Direct Stafford Loans are awarded next. You must indicate interest in these types of aid on your Student Information Form. If funds are available and you have need, these may be included as part of your award package.
Once you’ve been awarded aid, we’ll send an award letter to your BruinMail email in MySLCC. This letter details your aid package including: type of funds, amounts, hours the award is based on, and additional steps required to process your aid. You should check your email frequently to make sure you’ve completed all necessary steps.
