Satisfactory Academic Progress - SCC is required to establish academic standards that students must meet in order to be eligible for financial aid. It is the responsibility of each student to review this policy and ensure the standards are met.
Students receiving federal financial aid may be subject to the Return of Title IV Funds policy. You may also find SCC’s institutional refund policy here.
If you borrow a federal student loan, you must complete the Master Promissory Note (MPN) and Entrance Counseling before you may receive loan funds. Federal student loan borrowers must complete Entrance Counseling and may sign the MPN at www.studentloans.gov.
You will need your FSA ID and password to log in to this website.
If you do not have internet access, please contact the Financial Aid Office at: 402-437-2610.
As a federal student loan borrower, if your enrollment falls to less than half time, you are required to complete Exit Counseling. Federal student loan borrowers may complete Exit Counseling at www.studentloans.gov.
You will find additional information about your student loan history and your student loan servicer at the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS).
For additional information, please see the Department of Education’s publication “Exit Counseling Guide for Federal Student Loan Borrowers”.
For information about responsibilities and options for repaying your student loans, see the Federal Student Loan Repayment page.
Some lenders offer private, “alternative”, loans to students to help cover educational costs. These loans generally require the borrower to have good credit or a credit-worthy cosigner. Eligibility requirements, application procedures, fees, interest rates, finance charges, and repayment terms, and deferment options may vary from lender to lender.
The terms and conditions of a Federal Direct loan or Federal Direct PLUS loan may be more favorable than the provisions of private education loans so families are encouraged to utilize the Federal Direct Loan and the Federal Direct PLUS Loan before considering an alternative loan.
Please review this information about the differences between federal and private student loans.
Southeast Community College has no preferred lender arrangements regarding private education loans.
The Financial Aid Shopping Sheet is a consumer tool provided through the U.S. Department of Education and designed to simplify information students receive regarding costs and financial aid. The student can then make informed decisions about which school to attend. Students who have applied to SCC can access their individual Shopping Sheet in Webadvisor for Students on The Hub after the students complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and have been awarded. Students will need to view their award notification on their account and either accept or decline their financial aid.
The Consumer Finance Protection Bureau’s Paying for College website provides information about paying for college and a tool to compare financial aid offers.
The Net Price Calculator gives students an estimate of a college’s costs. SCC's Net Price Calculator is available here.
Students receiving federal student aid have certain legal rights and responsibilities.
In compliance with federal regulations, SCC has established a Code of Conduct it will follow in the administration of student loan programs.
On July 1, 2019, the Department of Education rescinded the Gainful Employment regulations via Federal Register, Volume 84, Number 126, pages 31392-31453. The Secretary of Education exercised her authority under section 482(C) of the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended, to designate these changes for early implementation as of July 1, 2019. Southeast Community College agrees with the Department’s decision to rescind these regulations, and has implemented these changes as of July 1, 2019.

Online and Distance Learning
All colleges must adhere to each state’s requirements regulating the delivery of online education to out-of-state students. These requirements limit SCC’s ability to offer online education in some areas outside of Nebraska.
Southeast Community College is a National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (NC-SARA) institution. As a member of NC-SARA, we are unable to offer online or distance courses to students in the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands.
Out-of-State Complaint Process
Southeast Community College is committed to resolving student complaints in an expeditious, fair and friendly manner. SCC's online students residing outside of Nebraska should resolve complaints with SCC by contacting Bruce Exstrom, Ph.D., Dean of Virtual Learning and Instructional Development, firstname.lastname@example.org or 402-323-3389.
SCC works diligently to find positive outcomes to student concerns. Please try to exhaust all possible avenues of complaint resolution before going outside of the college. However, if a complaint cannot be resolved through SCC's processes, you may file a complaint with your state. In compliance with federal Department of Education regulations, Southeast Community College provides a list of State Agencies (PDF) with contact information for each state. You may also contact our accrediting agency, The Higher Learning Commission or the Nebraska State Department of Education.
If you have questions regarding any out-of-state requirements, please send an email to email@example.com.
The College’s Student Grievance Procedure can be found in the College Catalog. Southeast Community College is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.
Additional online and distance learning information.
SCC students are given the opportunity to purchase textbooks with their financial aid if the student has enough funds to cover direct costs to the college (tuition, fees, housing, etc.) and has a remaining credit balance on their account. Any book and/or supply purchase made with financial aid may not exceed the amount of credit remaining on the student’s account. Only books and supplies needed for the student’s program of study may be charged against the remaining credit.
Students can access the online bookstore or visit the bookstore on each campus. Find your textbook.
Federal regulations [34CFR 668.8(k) and (l)] mandate that programs not leading to a degree, and all the courses within the program are not fully transferable to a higher degree, can only partially be paid by federal student aid. A specific federal formula determines the number of credits allowed to be paid by financial aid. At SCC, those programs and the number of credits eligible for federal financial aid are:
So, what does this mean?
If you enroll in one of the above-mentioned diploma programs, federal financial aid will not pay for the entire program. You will be responsible for the tuition and fees for the number of credits listed in the “Number of Credits Not Paid” column.
Please refer to the SCC catalog for current program requirements.
