Other Financial Aid Programs

NC Department of Community Colleges Child Care Grant Program

The NC Community Child Care Grant program is available to eligible students with children ages birth to Pre-K.  Priority is given to single parents. Applicants must be enrolled at least half-time (6 or more credit hours) in an eligible program of study and must complete the FAFSA.  Applications are available in the SCC Financial Aid Office.

Stanly Community College Emergency Fund

Limited funds are available to assist regularly enrolled students with nonacademic financial emergencies. Further information about the emergency fund may be obtained from the Financial Aid Department Office.  Assistance is contingent upon availability of funds.


North Carolina Community College Loan Program

Funds are available through the North Carolina Community College Loan Program for short-term, interest-free loans to assist with tuition and books. Applicants must be currently enrolled.  Loans are generally limited and must be repaid within 60 days. Failure to repay loans results in a student’s inability to register for classes, receive grades or transcripts. Students may apply for this loan in the Financial Aid Office.

Targeted Assistance Program

The Targeted Assistance Program provides financial assistance for students enrolled in low enrollment/high demand programs. Preference will be given to students in those programs whose EFC exceeds PELL Grant eligibility and still have financial need. Students must complete the FAFSA and meet PELL eligibility requirements.

Less Than One-Half Time Enrolled Program

The Less Than One-Half Time Enrolled program is designed to assist curriculum students who are PELL eligible and who are enrolled less than six credit hours in a semester. Recipients will have EFC’s ranging between 801 and 4000.
