Financial Aid

The student financial aid program at Sampson Community College is designed to assist qualified students in meeting the costs of attending college. The program consists of three major types of aid: grants, scholarships, and student employment. An eligible student may receive one or more of these types of financial aid.

Sampson Community College does not participate in the Federal Stafford Loan Program.

In making award decisions, the Financial Aid Office determines the student’s financial need for college attendance. The need is the difference between the resources of the student (and his or her family) and the cost of attendance. Any student who has completed the financial aid application process is considered for all types of financial aid without regard to the student’s race, color, national origin, religion, sex, age, disability, or political affiliation.

A student has the right to accept, reject, or appeal the aid he or she has been offered. To maintain eligibility to receive financial aid, students are required to meet the Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) Standards for Financial Aid Recipients as defined in this catalog.
