Financial Aid Appeal

Students who receive financial assistance from federal, state, or institutional funds must make "satisfactory academic progress" in order to remain eligible to receive financial aid.

Students who lose financial aid eligibility due to academic difficulty may submit an appeal to the Financial Aid Review Committee for consideration. However, if you have previously appealed and were placed on an Academic Plan but failed to meet the requirements of that plan, another appeal will not be considered. You will regain eligibility for aid once you have taken enough coursework (without the assistance of financial aid) to attain a GPA of 2.0 and a cumulative completion rate of 67%.

You must complete every field on this page. This appeal will be reviewed by the Financial Aid Review Committee, and a response will be available normally within 7-10 business days. You will be provided a response via regular mail to your address on record at SCC and by e-mail to your student e-mail account.

If your appeal is approved, you will be placed on an Academic Plan and will have to meet certain requirements, including meeting with a Student Success Advocate, in order to remain eligible for financial aid.

Should your appeal be denied, a subsequent appeal will not be considered until you have successfully completed at least six credit hours on your own (without the assistance of financial aid).

The decision of the Financial Aid Review Committee is final.
