Attend SCTC at No Cost

Fall classes begin August 24.  Fall Term B begins October 28.

For many students, financial aid can greatly affect their decision about whether or not to attend college, or which institution they attend.

Depending on your eligibility, you may have enough federal and/or state aid to cover your balance!

In addition, if you are awarded CARES Act funds, you have the option of applying your award toward your outstanding balance, if applicable.

Note: CARES Act funds will be available until exhausted.
