Financial Aid

The Stanly Community College Financial Aid Office is committed to assisting those students who cannot assume the full financial burden of a college education. Working closely with individual students, the Financial Aid Office helps bridge the gap between the cost of education and available resources through grants and scholarships.

The primary responsibility for financing education is with the student and his or her family. When the total resources provided do not meet expenses, SCC will do as much as possible to assist so that the student will not be denied an education and may take advantage of the life-long opportunities offered at Stanly Community College.

A student must submit a FAFSA application each year in which he or she expects to be considered for financial aid. The FAFSA is available beginning October 1 each year for the upcoming academic year (July 1 through June 30). Students must complete a FAFSA or FAFSA renewal for each academic year.

Stanly Community College uses the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to assess a student’s financial condition. Information entered onto the FAFSA is analyzed according to the requirements of the U.S. Congress and federal guidelines. This ensures that all applicants are treated fairly and equitably. Such items as income, assets, family size, marital status, and number of family members in college are used to determine financial need.

Stanly Community College is authorized to provide funding to eligible individuals through Federal and State grants, VA Educational Benefits and Institutional Scholarships.

Stanly Community College does not discriminate on the basis of sex, race, color, national or ethnic origin, disability, or religion in the administration of financial aid resources. The Financial Aid Office is located on the Albemarle Campus in the Patterson Building.
