Using Financial Aid in the SCTC Bookstore

Students will be able to use excess financial aid to assist with purchasing books and supplies. The Southern Crescent Technical College Bookstore’s primary goal is to ensure students are able to obtain the course materials they need at reasonable prices. They also provide many other items to support your academic career and school spirit. Purchases may be made with student financial aid, check, cash, or credit card. Visit the SCTC bookstore for dates when students can use financial aid each term

How Withdrawing Affects Your Financial Aid

Students who withdraw  from classes should understand their current and future aid could be impacted.

  • Students are strongly advised to speak with Financial aid before withdrawing from classes!

Financial Aid Refunds

If the total of all your financial aid is more than your direct tuition, mandatory fees, and bookstore charges for the semester, you will receive an excess financial aid refund. Excess financial aid refunds are issued through BankMobile approximately 48 days after the start of the semester.

Excess financial aid refunds will continue to be issued throughout the semester as funding is received from the Department of Education and GA Student Finance Commission.

Federal Shopping Sheet

Students can see the costs of attending SCTC and the average financial aid package available to them via the How-To Access your Federal Financial Aid Shopping Sheet.

Satisfactory Academic Progress

Federal regulations require students who receive financial aid to meet a set of standards identified for Financial Aid Satisfactory Academic Progress. Students can view their most recent Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) status and access helpful websites to track their progress. SAP status is determined when the student applies for financial aid and is evaluated at the end of every semester.
