When planning to attend college it is likely you have thought about the costs involved. Financial Aid is the process of putting you together with the funds you need to pay the costs of college. These costs include more than just the tuition. You also need to pay for books, supplies, travel to and from school as well as living expense.
The money for school comes from you, your family and from grants, scholarships, loans and part-time employment. When you apply for financial aid using the federal government's Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), you are actually applying to several different aid programs.
Financial aid at SWC includes scholarships, grants, and Title IV programs such as PELL, Federal Supplemental Opportunity Grant (SEOG), and Federal College Work Study Program. It does not include the Federal Stafford Loan Program as SWC chooses not to participate in the loan program.
Please remember this is a calculator it will give you an estimation of your need-based financial aid eligibility based on self-reported information.
