In the academic year of 2020-2021, students wanting to take out a student loan must first be awarded a student loan. This is done through completing a 2020-2021 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 any questions regarding this, please contact our office at (620) 417-1110. PLEASE NOTE: SCCC does not certify outside loans.
