Financial Aid. There is no financial aid for the summer programs, but students can apply for financial aid for the spring semester and use the money during summer. If you need financial aid to participate in the summer study abroad program, go to the Financial Aid Office and begin financial aid paperwork immediately. It takes the Financial Aid Office a minimum of 4 - 6 weeks to process your paperwork and determine your eligibility for aid.

Please refer to the SBCC Financial Aid website for more information about financial aid or student loans.
